T-Mobile to Offer Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus from Nov. 16

Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus

T-Mobile has added Samsung’s latest tiny tablet to its portfolio of 4G-enabled slates. The Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus is quite possibly one of the most exciting 7-inch tablets so far, with an impressive array of specifications that include a dual-core 1.2GHz processor, 1GB of RAM, and a 3-megapixel camera.

Weighing in at just 0.77 lbs., the device is lighter than Amazon’s upcoming Kindle Fire tablet, and one of the thinnest slates on the market. This makes it easy to take it everywhere with you, for watching movies, listening to music, playing games, and browsing the web — if you can put up with the smaller display, of course.

Unfortunately, the device does not ship with Android Ice Cream Sandwich but with Honeycomb instead. It makes up for it, however, with lots of internal goodness:

Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus Specs

  • Android Honeycomb
  • 1.2GHz dual-core processor
  • 1GB of RAM
  • 16GB/32GB of internal storage
  • microSD expansion slot for up to 32GB
  • 3-megapixel rear-facing camera with 720p video recording and LED flash
  • 2-megapixel front-facing camera
  • HSPA+ (up to 21Mbps down, up to 5.76Mbps up)
  • Wi-Fi a/b/g/n
  • Bluetooth 3.0
  • 193.65 x 122.37 x 9.96 mm
  • 345g
  • 4,000mAh Li-Ion battery

Jeremy Korst, vice president of mobile broadband and emerging devices for T-Mobile, said Samsung’s latest 7-inch is “perfectly sized” for an on-the-go entertainment experience:

“Consumers want a selection of affordable, highly mobile tablets that can deliver the content they want virtually anywhere they go.

“The Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus is a perfectly sized, ultra-thin and lightweight 4G tablet that easily fits in a coat pocket or purse and delivers a rich on-the-go entertainment experience.”

The device will be available from November 16 for $250 after a $50 mail-in rebate, but you will need to sign up for a two-year commitment with T-Mobile. Alternatively, you can get the device from Amazon for $399.
