The Samsung GALAXY Tab 7 has been rebooted as the GALAXY Tab 7 Plus bringing some positive changes to Samsung’s smallest tablet in its repertoire (not counting the hybrid smartphone/tablet GALAXY Note, of course). We’ve been playing with it for a few days and we thought we’d release some sneak peak images (and video coming) before we give you a full review. Read on.
The Tab 7 Plus runs the latest Google Android HoneyComb release, which is v3.2, sugar-coated with Samsung’s TouchWIZ 4.0. You’ll be chuffed to know that it is powered by Samsung’s dual-core 1.2Ghz Exynos processor with a generous 1GB of RAM and 16/32GB storage. And unlike its bigger brethren, comes with a MicroSD slot.
The unreleased units we have in possession are 3G/WiFi units which support telephony (yes you can make calls with them!). The 7″ PLS (Plane-to-Line-Switching) LCD supports a resolution of 1024 x 600 pixels, and offers better viewing angles plus is brighter than IPS-type displays like the iPad/iPad 2. Two cameras are included with the Tab 7 Plus – a 3.15MP rear facing with LED flash and a 2MP front-facing camera.
The GALAXY Tab 7 Plus is expected to be available in 2 weeks priced at RM1,699 and should be made available by major telcos.
