Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus: Specs and Features of a powerful 7-inch tablet

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus is actually thicker than its larger brother the Galaxy Tab 10.1. It does - offering enhanced portability through the light and slim 7" form, and advanced productivity powered by the 1.2GHz dual core processor, fast internet speed and updated Android Honeycomb platform with Samsung TouchWiz. Rounded out by rich multimedia functions, this tablet offers even more possibilities on the go.

The GALAXY Tab 7.0 Plus boasts an enviably small form factor – it is the size of a paperback book but possesses the computing power of a laptop. The 345g lightweight and compact tablet can be operated with a single hand - ideal when you are on the go. Powered by a mighty 1.2GHz Dual Core Processor, the GALAXY Tab 7.0 Plus allows seamless multitasking, faster webpage loading, smoother UI transitions and ultra-fast power-up.

The Honeycomb platform has been refined to offer the ultimate user experience on a wider range of tablet devices. The new compatibility zoom mode optimizes application that are not designed to run on larger screen sizes, so they fit on the entire screen without distortion. Also, media files can be loaded directly from the MicroSD card.

The GALAXY Tab 7.0 Plus calling function has been upgraded to let you make and receive voice calls privately by using Receiver Mode in public places. You no longer need a headset or Bluetooth for voice calls. Its battery life is quite good, lasting about 3 days under daily usage scenarios.

The GALAXY Tab 7.0 Plus offers the best connectivity options available, from lightning-fast HSPA+ 21Mps to Wi-Fi Channel Bonding. Wi-Fi Channel bonding technology will let you receive data-rates approximately twice as fast as existing Wi-Fi. The GALAXY Tab 7.0 Plus makes a lot more sense, for a bit more money. Or even the Galaxy Note, which is infinitely more portable.
