The Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus was announced in September as the successor to the original Galaxy Tab, one of the first true Android tablets (even if it was hampered by an operating system designed for phones). Things have changed since the original launched, and Android Honeycomb has been created for tablet use specifically. The Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus runs Honeycomb, and will probably be updated to Ice Cream Sandwich too in the future.
For now though, it’s Honeycomb all the way. The Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus was supposed to arrive in the US on November 13, but it’s already available. Amazon has the 16 GB version in stock for $399.99 (which is the recommended sales price in the US, so unfortunately Amazon hasn’t yet cut the price like it usually does with smartphones).
As you can see, shipping is free. The Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus with 32 GB of built-in storage is sadly not available yet, but it probably will be out soon too.
This is a nice surprise – in a mobile world quite used to delays, it’s certainly great to see a product ship well before its intended release date.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus has a 7-inch 1024×600 touchscreen, a dual-core 1.2 GHz processor, a 3 MP autofocus rear camera with LED flash and 720p HD video recording, a secondary front-facing 2 MP camera, 1 GB of RAM, microSD card support, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth. It runs Android 3.2 Honeycomb with Samsung’s TouchWiz UI overlay for tablets.
