Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus heads to T-Mobile Nov. 16


Samsung’s revamped smaller tablet, the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus is bound for T-Mobile. The carrier announced that it will carry the 7-inch tablet beginning Nov. 16. The Tab 7.0 Plus is a revamp of the original Galaxy Tab 7-inch tablet, but shares most of its design characteristics with the recently released Galaxy Tab 10.1 and Galaxy Tab 8.9 tablets. That means it’s quite thin at 9.96mm (though not as thin as the larger tablets) and the lightest Galaxy Tab yet at just .77 pounds (345g). 

The Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus is a fully-featured tablet, running on Google’s Android 3.2 (Honeycomb) operating system with Samsung’s TouchWiz user interface, a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 16GB of internal storage, 1GB of RAM, a 3MP rear camera, a 2MP front camera, and a microSD card slot for expanded memory storage. It also has a 1024×600 pixel screen. Full specs can be found at Samsung’s official site

Unfortunately, a nice tablet doesn’t come cheap. The Tab 7.0 Plus will be available on Nov. 16 for a $250 “down payment.” After you purchase the device, which requires a 2-year data contract, you’ll have to send in a $50 mail-in rebate to get that price and also make “20 interest free monthly payments of $10.” This makes the total price of the tablet $450-$500 and you’ll be stuck paying for its data for two years. Good deal? We’ll let you decide. We are definitely fans of the larger Samsung tablets, but we haven’t yet had a chance to use Samsung’s new 7-inch device. 

The Tab 7.0 Plus joins the Galaxy Tab 10.1, T-Mobile G-Slate, T-Mobile SpringBoard, original Samsung Galaxy Tab, and the Dell Streak 7 on T-Mobile here in the United States. You can view the tablets on T-Mobile’s site

Qualcomm has taken the wraps off its Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2, the next generation of its midrange mobile platform. The new chip is designed to deliver powerful entertainment experiences and performance gains to a broader range of smartphones.

The new platform is an evolution of last year’s Snapdragon 7 Gen 1, which was already a leap beyond the older Snapdragon 700 series it replaced. It began closing the gap with the premium Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 — a trend that continues with this year’s Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2.

Here are the three Galaxy S23 Ultra camera features that I used extensively and which helped me make my trip memorable.

I love the Galaxy S23 — here are 5 things the iPhone still does better
Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra and Apple iPhone 14 Pro

Samsung’s Galaxy S23 has arrived to the masses, and it’s one of the best Android phones you can get right now, especially the S23 Ultra. However, for those who don’t need all of the fancy bells and whistles, like the S Pen and 200MP main camera, the regular S23 is also plenty powerful for the average person, especially if you prefer smaller devices.

I’ve been using the Galaxy S23 for the past few weeks, and so far, my experience has been delightful. I know that it’s still early on in the year, but for me, the S23’s small size is perfect and comfortable. Android also does a lot of things better than iOS, like individual volume controls and notifications, for example. But I am still primarily using my iPhone 14 Pro — despite Apple having some big flaws, such as overprocessing images after you capture them.
