T-Mobile ushers in the holidays with Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus
Mobile carrier T-Mobile has a spanking new 4G tablet in the pipeline to keep the tech savvy group happy this upcoming holiday shopping season – and their “weapon” of choice would be the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus. Touted to be Samsung’s latest ultra-mobile 4G tablet, it will hopefully be able to live up to expectations by delivering a rich entertainment experience anywhere, and with a tagline like “America’s Largest 4G Network”, you would hope that they are right on that account.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus will be the latest model in Samsung’s portfolio of 7″, 9″ and 10″ 4G-enabled tablets, where your eyes will be greeted by a rather brilliant 7″ multitouch display. Hmmm, come to think of it, the number 7 seems to figure rather prominently – the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus will also tip the scales at 0.77 lbs, making it one of the thinnest as well as lightest 7″ tablets in the market. I just wonder what Apple executives will make of it, assuming they churn out an iPad nano down the road.
Entertainment is the name of the game for the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus, where it will already ship with a range of pre-installed premium content, where among them will include the Samsung Media Hub that enables you to rent or purchase movies and purchase TV programs, while sharing that very same content on up to five compatible devices using just one account. There is also the presence of WildTangent that already comes pre-loaded, allowing customers to play premium games without forking out a cent. You will, of course, have the option to rent or purchase games as well.
What about system specifications? Well, Android 3.2 Honeycomb is definitely part of the deal, where it will be running on a 1.2 GHz dual-core processor, carry 16GB of internal memory, and just in case that is not enough, a microSD memory card slot is there to further augment its storage capabilities. Another advantage that the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus has over the iPad would be the ability to support Flash for a richer mobile web experience.
There is also a 3-megapixel rear-facing camera that has flash for photo purposes, capturing video as well in HD resolution and a 2-megapixel front-facing camera for video calls. Does this tablet interest you in any way?
