Samsung Galaxy Tab Plus Now Available And Shipping In The US

The Samsung Galaxy Tab Plus wasn’t supposed to be available until November 13th but it looks like the 7-inch tab has received the green light and is now shipping in the US. There are two models available — a 16GB version for $400 and a 32GB for $500. Both versions feature a 7-inch, 1024×600 resolution Super LCD display, dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 3MP rear/2MP front facing cameras, Android 3.x Honeycomb, micro SD slot and IR blaster for television connectivity.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab Plus will be going head-to-head with the Kindle Fire this holiday season. I think the Tab Plus would have a fighting chance if only Samsung would lower the price of each model by $100. What do you guys think? Instant buy, pass or wait until the price drops?

    Lower that price! I can’t even begin to consider it at that price.

  • Ed

    nah, lower down by $50 is justified. the hardware in this GTab+ is way ahead of kindle fire :D , would be happy to see lower price though. on top of that, it has the ability to make calls!

      7.7″ version at $250 or transformer prime

  • Tone503773

    I want a galaxy tab and this is the perfect size, but I’ll wait for the price to drop.

  • Mo

    I’d rather wait for the transformer prime…

  • kstagg

    Lower that price by $100 and it will sell tons. A Samsung tablet for $300? Damn!

  • babadush

    500 bucks for a 7″ tablet. What drugs are they on?

  • Scotsman of Loch Ness

    pass and wait until the price drops by at least a 100 bucks

    I have the original Galaxy Tab 10.1-32G and am happy with it. I won’t go to the new one. As well, those seem to take time before being available in Canada. I bought mine in USA while being on travel, but it took almost two months before it bcame available in Canada, and so far, I only saw the 16G one.

    Wow did they miss the price sweet spot or what?

  • Aeires

    My at home tablet is the Transformer, but I’m looking at replacing my original 7″ Tab, but not with this, with the Tab 7.7 model.  I think anyone who buys this will be disappointed when they see the 7.7, the Super Amoled Plus screen is a better choice than the LCD one.

    • parkg626

      Right there with Aeires…I’m waiting on the 7.7″ version.  With the 7.7 having a 1.4 dual core processor, sim card to be able to make and receive phone calls(I am currently using the original Tab rooted with complete phone use, its awesome). Downside: it might not fix in my back pocket like my 7″er does.Not a day goes by with someone liking all the same features of any Tablet, Android or Apple, it can do it all and make phone calls.

  • Unorthodox

    I need this tablet, but I’ll be damned if I buy it at this price. Sammy’s think they are already a new Apple, but they are NOT just yet.

  • jtwebfusion

    How does it go head to head with the fire at twice the price???

  • Freak4Dell

    At $300, I would buy it, and so would a whole lot of other people. At $400 and $500, though, no way.

  • RichardReich

    I have no interest in tablets until the price comes way down.  And I hear about something useful you can do with them.  I already pay way too much for entertainment machines.  Don’t need another one.

  • Chris Sandoval

    Does this have GPS like the first one?

  • Chris Sandoval

    These tablets need to come with GPS for the all around Google experience! Not only that. I want to install one in my car!

  • Brad

    Nevermind! They will stop to make updates asap fo this device (like the old one). Who else believes in sammy?
