Samsung announces the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus for the US, coming on November 13 for $399.99
Samsung has just announced the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus all over again, this time for the US market. This tablet was first unveiled by the Korean company last month. But back then there were absolutely no details about its availability and pricing in the US.
That changes today, with the press release basically serving just that one purpose. So, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus will be available in the US starting on November 13 for $399.99. Pre-orders will officially start on October 23, which is this Sunday. That said, some retailers have already started taking pre-orders for this tablet a few days ago.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus is the true successor to the original Galaxy Tab unveiled last year. It also has a 7-inch 1024×600 screen, but runs Android Honeycomb, the tablet-optimized version of the OS, and has a dual-core 1.2 GHz processor, whereas its predecessor had to make do with just a single-core 1 GHz unit.
The Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus also comes with an infrared port, and an app called Peel that will let you control your home entertainment system (including TVs, set-top-boxes, DVD players, Blu-Ray players, and audio systems) regardless of its manufacturer.
The tablet will come with 16 GB of internal storage space and will be sold by Best Buy, Amazon, Tiger Direct, Fry’s, and others.
