Galaxy Tab 7 plus

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus is the latest Honeycomb tablet from Samsung, combining the Android 3.2 experience and the Exynos processor into a 7-inch package.  Closely resembling it's 10-inch brothers, it's got the TouchWiz tablet interface on top of Android 3.2, which isn't nearly as intrusive as the TouchWiz of old, and actually brings enough to the table that most call it an improvement over stock Android.  The 7-inch size should make the Tab 7 plus more portable and perfect for reading, and we're curious at how the speedy Exynos processor will power this one for games and media.  We're planning on giving this one a real workout, but for now you can have a look past the jump for a hands-on video, a specs list, and a handful of pictures.  More comes later.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 7 Plus hands-on and initial review

11 Comments

man that thing looks so fast. easily zippiest iv seen a honeycomb tab. i guess has alot to do with either screen size or processor or alil of both?

Man, Samsung continues to impress and do Android proud. If I didnt have the 10.1 and a Fire on the way, I would love to have this baby. Good job on the review Jerry.

So are they going to short change the WIFI only tab again this round or give the same specs to all the models.

I would consider buying a newer WiFi only tab if they do.
Also would be nice if they offered a trade up discount.

Old Wifi 7" +100.00 = new wifi 7" hey I can dream.

Nice review and interesting looking little tablet. Not sure about price in light of Kindle Fire and Nook Color.

But a question for Jerry - does it make sense to spend this much $$ on a Honeycomb tablet now? I like Samsung hardware, but if the Asus Prime launches with quad core and ICS for just $100 more - why buy this?

I'd love a 3G version of this on Sprint. I keep wanting to get a View but it seems too "outdated" to lay out that kind of cash on.

got a chance to buy one and play with it easily the best I've used (also had a xoom) but at 399 i was ale to get a nice i3 laptop for school and got the kindle fire which pretty much max out what i would have done on my g tab 7+ wish it was cheaper but it is worth the price

When searching AC's store for accessories on this, I get: "ahem... sorry but your search did not bring back any devices"

Do accessories interchange with the original Tab? Docks? My concern today is the Samsung charging cable. The proprietary end. Does Sammy still use the same port in all it's tablet's yet so far?

what is the RAM utilization for the device
i find it more than 460 MG when it is just starting ! (more than 60%) this is normal ?
