Samsung Friday announced the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus tablet, an update that is lighter and more powerful than the original Galaxy Tab, and runs a 1.2 GHz dual core processor.
Samsung said the new Plus version 3.2 of Android, also known as Honeycomb. The original Galaxy Tab, announced in September 2010, ran Android 2.2 and then 2.3 starting in May 2011.
Both versions of Galaxy Tab have 7-in. touchscreen. The Plus is 12.16 ounces, compared to the 13.58 ounce weight of its predecessor.
Most important, the Plus runs the dual core 1.2 GHz processor, up from the 1 GHz chip in the original.
