Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus for AT&T hits FCC

The new model will include HSPA+ connectivity with bands compatible with the AT&T network
Allen Ngo,

With so many Galaxy Tabs arriving at the FCC of late, we were waiting to see when exactly the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus would arrive, too.

As the update to the original Galaxy Tab 7, the 7.0 Plus will bring with it an HSPA+ radio for 4G speeds, likely with the AT&T network. Other connectivity options, such as wireless-n and Bluetooth 3.0, will be included as well. The model at the FCC appears to simply be the 3G-enabled version of the WiFi-only model that is already available.

The Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus uses a dual-core 1.2GHz CPU, similar to the one in the Galaxy S II smartphone, with 1GB RAM and runs Android Honeycomb out of the box. The tablet is also smaller and lighter than the original at only 9.9mm (0.39 inches) thick and 345 grams (0.76 pounds).

The launch and price of the AT&T model at the FCC is unknown, but users can currently buy the WiFi-only model for $400. The T-Mobile version of the 7.0 Plus is available now as well for a relatively high price of $249 after rebates and with a 2-year contract.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
