    Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus Launches for $400 On November 13th


    The new refresh of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus will hit store shelves on November 13h for $399.99. It has been confirmed for several retailers, including Best Buy, Amazon, and Tiger Direct. It's a bit on the pricey side, but actually has some beefy specs and some unique features that make it tempting anyway. Here's a recap:
    • Android Honeycomb
    • 7-inch display with a 1024 x 600-pixel resolution
    • 16GB of storage
    • 1.2GHz dual-core processor
    • Built-in infrared capabilities that will allow users to control their home theater and TV setup directly from the tablet

    That last feature seems like the most intriguing reason to consider it. Here's the press release.
    Samsung Expands U.S. Tablet Portfolio with Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus

    Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus Featuring Peel Smart Remote App Delivers Powerful “Discover, Tap and Watch” Home Entertainment Experience

    DALLAS and SANTA CLARA, Calif.– October 21, 2011 – Samsung Telecommunications America (Samsung Mobile), the No. 1 mobile phone provider in the U.S.1, and Samsung Electronics America today announced the upcoming availability of the Samsung Galaxy Tab™ 7.0 Plus featuring Peel Smart Remote TV application. Peel allows users to instantly find and watch their favorite TV shows and discover new shows based on their preferences, all with the tap of a screen.

    Offering a portable, rich multimedia experience on a 7-inch display, the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus packs power and productivity into a chic lightweight design, weighing just 345g and measuring 9.96mm thin. The Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus runs Google AndroidTM Honeycomb platform, enabling an easy and intuitive user experience. In addition, the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus delivers a smooth and intuitive user experience with powerful performance powered by a 1.2GHz dual core processor.

    Featuring built-in infrared capabilities, the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus can control the user’s home theater/TV setup. The Peel integration on the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus goes beyond the Peel application available for download today by no longer requiring additional hardware or cables for TV control functionality. Peel allows users to control any home entertainment system regardless of manufacturer.

    Peel displays personalized programming recommendations in an intuitive and content-driven graphical interface, completely eliminating the need to scroll through traditional channel-listing grids. The application’s home screen displays colorful thumbnail images of “Top Picks,” or favorite shows. Touch one of the thumbnails and the application displays what channel that show is on as well as a brief description of the episode that is playing. Simply tap “Watch On TV” and the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus will automatically change the channel to the selected program.

    “The Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus optimized with the innovative Peel application will enable users to connect seamlessly to view their favorite TV shows,” said Dale Sohn, president of Samsung Mobile. “Our partnership with Peel further builds on Samsung’s convergence strategy to create enhanced user experiences.”

    Peel combined with the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus can control the entire home entertainment system, including the TV, set-top box, DVD, Blu-ray player and AV audio system. Peel will provide Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus users with a social aspect as well, connecting them directly to Facebook and Twitter to share what they are watching with their social networks.

    “This partnership continues Peel’s vision of eliminating the barriers between you and your favorite shows,” said Greg Lindley, chief experience officer for Peel. “The Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus – with its built in IR remote functionality – is a great platform for the Peel app and creates an ideal second screen experience for any TV lover.”

    The 16GB Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus will be available nationwide through Best Buy, Amazon, Tiger Direct, Fry’s and other fine retailers starting November 13th for $399.99. Pre-orders will begin October 23rd with select partners.

    Samsung’s relationship with Peel is part of Samsung’s overall commitment to convergence and the companies are working to integrate the Peel Smart Remote Application into future Samsung mobile devices.

    I like the IR capability. I need a new remote for my equipment as my current Harmony remote is on the fritz. The remote I want is $200 so I could see paying a little more and getting the tablet. Plus, the Dish Network app on Android is pretty handy too. I think I see a tablet in my future.

    Infra-red seems like a no-brainer for tablets. Brilliant move. Of course, I'd bet money that it won't work or be compatible with older hardware. Perhaps if you still have a working remote it will be able to "learn", but in my experience smart remotes never work quite right with my Denon receiver that's about 6 years old. Volume and power works, but not all the features do.

    That feature in combination with a tv guide or DVR settings....something like Comcast's XFinity...could be a heck of a convenience. In fact, I think the XFinity app on my IPad can already control my tv (well, the cable/dvr more so than the tv itself).
