Preorders for Samsung's Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus officially start today, with units shipping and arriving in stores on November 13th. The pint-sized tablet has a 7-inch 1024×600 screen, and is priced at $399.99 for a 16GB version.
We first heard about the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus a few weeks ago, the Honeycomb tablet boasts a number of major improvements over its predecessor, including a speedy 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, and HSPA+ with download speeds of up to 21Mbps.
If a 7″ tablet seems like a giant remote to you, then you'll be pleased to know you can actaully use the Galaxy Tab 7.0 as a remote control for your television.
Featuring built-in infrared capabilities, the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus can control the user's home theater/TV setup. The Peel integration on the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus goes beyond the Peel application available for download today by no longer requiring additional hardware or cables for TV control functionality. Peel allows users to control any home entertainment system regardless of manufacturer.
Peel displays personalized programming recommendations in an intuitive and content-driven graphical interface, completely eliminating the need to scroll through traditional channel-listing grids. The application's home screen displays colorful thumbnail images of "Top Picks," or favorite shows. Touch one of the thumbnails and the application displays what channel that show is on as well as a brief description of the episode that is playing. Simply tap "Watch On TV" and the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus will automatically change the channel to the selected program.
Peel combined with the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus can control the entire home entertainment system, including the TV, set-top box, DVD, Blu-ray player and AV audio system. Peel will provide Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus users with a social aspect as well, connecting them directly to Facebook and Twitter to share what they are watching with their social networks."
