For those of you who love Android-based tablets, and were fond of the Samsung Galaxy Tab before, you’ll be happy to know that the updated version is coming to the United States.
Samsung has notified the press that the tablet will be available on November 13th, and will cost just $399.99. This isn’t really a big surprise or anything, as this price is pretty standard rate for a tablet to compete with the iPad. However, the iPad isn’t for everyone, and this tablet will offer a lot of people a lot of “bang for their buck” when they use it. The Galaxy Tab Plus comes in as the sixth edition to the Samsung line of Galaxy tablets, and makes improvements upon the previous models.
It sports a 7-inch 1024×600 WVGA display and a 1.2GHz dual-core processor. The device supports video playback in 1080p, and includes a 3-megapixel rear camera with autofocus and LED flash. Although the screen is capable of 1080p playback, the camera on the rear will only be recording in 720p. Not that this is that big of an issue, considering most phones will shoot higher, and tablets really aren’t ideal, nor popular, for recording video in the first place. The camera most people will care about on a tablet, is the front-facing camera, which comes in as a 2-megapixel on the front of the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus.
The tablet will sport 16GB of storage space, and it’s actually not clear whether or not Samsung will be including a 32GB model for the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus, since they make no reference to one even existing in their press release (featured below). The 7-inch device will, however, be shipping with HSPA+ support, along with 1GB of RAM, which is something most people will be happy to hear.
