Tab 7.0 Plus – Samsung newest tab on the block – has been spotted on Amazon.com selling for US$400. What is being flouted as a ‘slimmer faster’ tablet with 1.2 GHz processor now comes with another extra – Exynos SoC chip system, similar to Galaxy S II smartphone, according to AnandTech.

Running Android Honeycomb 3.2 OS, the seven inch Galaxy also sports WiFi upgrades, although whether Tab Plus will hit Oz is another story since its big brother Tab 10.1 is banned here, thanks to Apple.
But since the injunction prevents Samsung from selling Tab 10.1 only, it is tipped to be fast forwarding release of 8.9 Tab and the 7.0 Plus here in time for Christmas, although there has been no official confirmation to date.
And just in case you’re wondering, Amazon will not sell Galaxy 7.0 to an Australian user (although it wasn’t for the lack of trying!).
7 inch tab also includes Wi-Fi 802.11a, Wi-Fi Direct, comes in 16GB and 32 GB models, front 3.2MP and rear 2.0MP cameras but no need for a headset when making voice calls thanks to new technology.
The offical pre-sale sighting on Amazon US, promising delivery by Nov 8 comes in spite of the official US release not until next week, according to Engadget.
But there are selling woes for Samsung here in Australia also with several online seller flogging the banned Tab 10.1 despite the court ruling last month.
Apple are said to be in the process of chasing Dmavo and Mobicity over the illegal selling of Tab 10.1.
Dmavo was said to be inundated with Australian orders and is refusing to cease selling the Tab despite letters from Apple lawyers.
