Samsung have today announced the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus and confirmed that it will run Android Honeycomb 3.2.
Other key points include a WSVGA display, HSPA+ mode and a 7 inch screen, similar to the recently announced Kindle Fire and a 1.2 Ghz dual-core processor which makes it a powerful mid-size tablet, ideal for music, movies and eBooks. It weights in at a dinky 345g.
The real question is price as the battle of the budget tablets is well under way for the Christmas period. Amazon have announced a competitive $199 US price for the Kindle Fire and Advent, Hanspree and Archos are all joining the battle with tablets that undercut the price of iPad 2.
As yet, Samsung have refused to comment on price, but confirm that the Galaxy Tab 7.0 will arrive by the end of the year.
Simon Stanford, Managing Director of Samsung UK said: “The Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus packs power and productivity into a lightweight design. The latest addition to Samsung’s Galaxy Tab range demonstrates our ongoing dedication to designing a variety of premium tablets and continued innovation to suit different needs and lifestyles. We are delighted to be able to introduce the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus to the Galaxy family in the UK later this year.”
