Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus

Samsung has today announced an update to the smallest slate in its Galaxy range called the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus. The new device will be available from October and boasts a number of major improvements over its predecessor, including a super speedy 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, and HSPA+ with download speeds of up to 21Mbps.

The device will be available with either 16GB or 32GB of storage and is powered by Google’s Android Honeycomb operating system. Its impressive list of specifications will undoubtedly make it the most appealing 7-inch tablet on the market:

To me, Samsung’s new slate looks very tasty. It has so much more than you’d usually expect from a 7-inch device that it’s ideal for those who want to run power-hungry apps and games, take half-decent photographs, and still slip the device into their pocket when they’re done.

There’s no word on pricing at this point, but we can safely assume that it will be cheaper than the device’s larger counterpart — the Galaxy Tab 7.7. It’s unlikely it will be priced to compete with Amazon’s new Kindle Fire, but with a list of specifications like this, that’s understandable.
