In today's world technology gets more advanced and there is a constant shift to make better and more devices. Every company has something to offer consumers - some products are better than others and the price range varies so that most consumers can afford tech products. Recently Samsung has sent us the Samsung Galaxy 7.0 Tablet for us to review here at BCCHardware and this fits in to the tablet market that is pretty affordable - but not budget. Of course most of you have heard of Samsung - a South Korean Company in "Samsung Town", Seoul that have branched out to many parts of the world and made many products over the years of product production.
From appliances, to TV’s, computers, laptops, point and shoot cameras, head gear to phones and now tablets - Samsung makes a ton of different products. They want to produce products that “take the world to imaginative new directions.” I think the Samsung Galaxy 7.0 Tablet fits right in with their product line for mainstream affordable technology. This is a 7" tablet that fits nicely in between their 10" tablets and the 5.3" Galaxy Note as we'll see in a bit.
Although some of the staff here at BCCHardware own tablets, this will be the first one we actually review. We've looked at touch screen media players, but nothing like this. Although in reference BCCHardware did take a look at the Galaxy Note recently. While not a full-on tablet, it still qualifies as a phone/tablet = phablet.
For those of you that are Android fanboys and fangirls, the Samsung Galaxy Tablet runs Honeycomb 3.2. We have the 16GB version on our bench, but if you need more you can insert a microSD card as it has a slot for that on the side. The tablet claims up to 8 hrs of battery usage - mind you the more you use it the less battery life (and intense applications and games will make it drain faster). The display is a 7.0" unit and it weighs in at 12.1 oz light and 0.39” thin with a dual core processor.
White backing and silver grey metallic look for edging. Touch screen that tends to leave fingerprints behind with its glossy look, front and back facing camera, 2 holes on top and bottom for that are a mic, built in speakers, microSD card slot, volume button, power button on the side and a headphone jack on top and a charging connector on the bottom.
On the next page we'll start to get into things by sharing our first thoughts as we break this in and start to use it.
