The Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus just got a price cut.\u00a0 Samsung Mobile Philippines has announced on its Facebook page that the 7-inch tablet is now priced at P19,990, down from its previous retail price of P23,990.\u00a0 That\u2019s a discount of P4,000 which is quite huge by Philippine standards. \u00a0You can see Samsung's announcement\u00a0here. I have always thought that the 7-inch platform is perfect for my taste and my needs.\u00a0 It offers just the right amount of screen real estate, and yet it is also very portable compared to 10-inch tablets.\u00a0 At its original price, I found the\u00a0Samsung\u00a0Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus\u00a0a little on the expensive side.\u00a0 With the recent price cut, I am now seriously considering buying this tablet.\u00a0 It has good specs and it\u2019s also well designed. For the price of P19,900, you get this set of specs: Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus (GT-P6200) Specifications \t7-inch PLS display with 1024\u00d7600 resolution \tGoogle Android 3.2 Honeycomb \t1.2GHz Exynos 4210 Dual-Core processor \t1GB RAM \t16GB or 32GB internal storage, expandable up to 64GB via microSD \t3MP rear camera \t2MP front-facing camera \t3G and HSPA+ with 21Mbps speed \tWiFi 802.11 b\/g\/n \tDLNA \tBluetooth 3.0 \tGPS w\/ aGPS support \tIR port \t4000mAh Li-Ion battery The 1.2GHz dual-core Exynos processor has gotten good reviews so in terms of performance, the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus should deliver.\u00a0 This is way faster than the single-core CPU of the original Galaxy Tab, and even faster than the CPU on the Galaxy Tab 8.9 and Galaxy Tab 10.1. However - and this is a huge \u201chowever\u201d - the iPad 2 with the lowest configuration has dropped its price to only P18,900. \u00a0This is a very competitive price, so the iPad 2 should be a consideration if you are not decided on whether to get a 7-inch tablet or a 10-inch one.\u00a0 The iPad 2 still remains a good tablet despite the release of the new iPad (2012). \u00a0I have a suspicion that Samsung slashed the price of the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus because of the recent price cut on the iPad 2. Whether you should get a Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus or an iPad 2 depends on the display size you are after. \u00a0If you\u2019re looking for a 7-inch tablet, the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus should be a good choice.\u00a0 In fact, I might just get one.
