By on

Samsung added another tablet to their lineup today in the form of the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus. As the name suggests, Samsung’s latest Galaxy Tab features a 7-inch PLS (Super Plane to Line Switching) display operating at 1024 x 600 pixels running Android 3.2 Honeycomb and a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, likely the Exynos 4120.

The device has quad-band GSM / GPRS / EDGE support and tri-band 3G with 21Mbps HSPA as well as two cameras. The front 2MP lens is used for video calls while the rear camera shoots 3MP images and 720p video. One gig of RAM and a 4,000 mAh battery come standard on all models.

Android 3.2 Honeycomb gets the Samsung TouchWiz UI treatment. There will be a 16GB and 32GB model available at launch and both include dual-band Wi-Fi a/b/g/n, GPS and Bluetooth. The slim 7-inch Tab measures 193.65 x 122.37 x 9.96 mm and weighs only .76 pounds, or 12.16 ounces.

"Samsung pioneered the seven-inch tablet market with the launch of the GALAXY Tab, marking an innovation milestone in the mobile industry. Building on the success of the GALAXY Tab, we're now delighted to introduce the GALAXY Tab 7.0 Plus reloaded with enhanced portability, productivity and a richer multimedia experience" said JK Shin, President and Head of Samsung's Mobile Communications Business.

The Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus will be available in Indonesia and Austria by the end of October and worldwide shortly after that. Samsung has not released any pricing details as of yet, but if it can drop at an attractive price like Amazon’s Kindle Fire, this could be a popular selection this holiday season.
