This is the direct follow-up Galaxy Tab which ran Android 2.2. This tablet comes with Honeycomb 3.2 installed, and Samsung's custom TouchWiz.

-Hey guys, Eric Franklin here, and today, we're taking a first look at the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus. This is the direct followup to the Samsung Galaxy Tab, which ran Android 2.2. The 7 plus, comes with Honeycomb 3.2 installed with Samsung's custom TouchWiz interface. The physical design has been changed to be sleeker and less boxy, but includes mostly the same features. Headphone jack and mic, SD card slot, dual speakers, and power button and volume racker. The design is slightly thinner than the original tab, but not quite as thin as the galaxy tab 10.1. The biggest addition is the IR sensor here that couple with the few app, turns the tablet into smart remote control. Few allows you to customize the types of shows it recommends as well as favorite in programs so it knows which types of shows to prioritize. You can also use it to manually switch channels. Right now, the app doesn't really have much use If you're a cheapskate like and you don't have cable. Also, we talked some issue with the swipe controls and would prefer a more directional control. Other than the addition to field, the 7 plus is fairly typical for a honeycomb tablet with a quality screen, with good viewing angles. While few has a new feature, we're more looking forward to when it integrates streaming services like Netflix and Hulu increasing its usefulness. The 7 plus is available for 340 bucks at its lowest. This is the Wi-Fi version, and the T-Mobile version, will come at a lower subsidise price of 250 bucks in addition to the monthly fee. Check out the full review for more info and to see what our recommendation is. Once again, this is Eric Franklin, and this has been the first look at the Samsung Galaxy 7.0 plus.
