Samsung launches new Galaxy Android Honeycomb Tablet

South Korean electronics company Samsung has unveiled the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus, as an updated version of their very first Galaxy Tab tablet device.

Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus is now the consumer electronics company’s third tablet, following on from the initial Galaxy Tab, Samsung Galaxy 10.1 and the Galaxy 8.9.

At the end of August this year Samsung announced a new naming convention to their phone and now tablet ranges, where the ‘Plus’ indicates the device is an upgrade from an existing model - which is evident in the new tablet.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus arrives with a 7-inch WSVGA 1024X600 PLS LCD capacitive touch screen, whilst powered by a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, with a rear-facing 3 megapixel camera with a LED flash and a front-facing 2MP variant.

The new tablet ships with Android ‘Honeycomb’ 3.2, where the first model came with the non-tablet Android ‘Froyo’ 2.2 OS and a single core 1GHz CPU.

Samsung’s original 7-inch tablet came with the dimensions of 190.1mm in height, by 120.5mm wide and was 12mm thin, whilst weighing in at 380grams – where the 7.0 Plus is 193.7mm, by 122.4mm, with a thinner 9.96mm form factor and a lighter 345grams weight.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus will be available starting in Indonesia and Austria from end-October, then gradually rolled out globally including Southeast and Southwest Asia, US, Europe, CIS, Latin America, Middle East, Africa, and China.
