Enterprise Mobility: Samsung Adds Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus to Broaden Tablet Lineup
Samsung's approach to the Android tablet market became increasingly clear Sept. 30, when the company introduced the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus, the smallest of its Android Honeycomb tablet line to date. The device, which has not been priced, will launch first in Indonesia and Austria in late October before enjoying a broader rollout to the United States and elsewhere in Europe and Asia. The 7.0 Plus demonstrates that Samsung clearly wants to satisfy all users interested in tablets. The company now offers the traditional 7-inch form factor, the midsize Tab 7.7 and 8.9 slates while finally capping the line with the Tab 10.1, which is the first Honeycomb slate aimed at challenging Apple's iPad on form and function. It will be interesting to see how this tablet competes versus Amazon's Kindle Fire, which launches Nov. 15 for $199. In the meantime, this eWEEK slide show walks through the Tab 7.0 Plus features.
