The Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus is now available for pre-order from Amazon for $400 and up. The tablet features a 7 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel display — just like the original Galaxy Tab which was released in 2010. But that’s pretty much where the similarities end.
The new tablet is thinner, lighter, and faster than the original, and it also has newer software.
Samsung’s newest tablet has a 1.2 GHz dual core processor and runs Google Android 3.2 Honeycomb with Samsung’s TouchWiz software interface running on top.
The tablet measures 0.4 inches thick and weighs .76 pounds. It’s available with 16GB to 32GB of storage, has 1GB of RAM, and a 4000mAh battery. It also includes 802.11b/g/n WiFi and Bluetooth, a 2MP front camera and 3MP rear camera.
The 16GB model is up for pre-order for $399.99and the 32GB version will set you back $499.99. There’s still no information on a ship date for the tablet.
Update: It looks like those Amazon pre-order pages might have been premature. They’ve both been removed.
