The T-Mobile Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus is a big improvement on the original Galaxy Tab, and so it's no surprise that T-Mobile will be carrying it. It has a 1.2GHz dual-core processor and runs Android 3.2.

We already knew that the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus would be available in a Wi-Fi version on the 13th of this month, but now T-Mobile and Samsung have announced that the carrier will offer the tablet as well. Available November 16th, the price tag is $249.99 — after signing on to a two year contract and waiting for a $50 mail-in rebate. Oh, that contract includes an extra clause, too: "20 interest free monthly payments of $10," for a grand total of $449.99.

Specs on the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus on T-Mobile are basically identical to the Wi-Fi only version, with the obvious difference that this will work on T-Mobile's network. Otherwise, expect the 7-inch tablet to weigh 0.77 pounds, use a 1.2GHz dual-core Exynos processor, and include 16GB of internal storage with a microSD card slot on the side. The 3-megapixel camera on the back is capable of "mobile HD" video capture while the 2-megapixel camera on the front is responsible for video chat.

It's running Android 3.2 with Samsung's relatively lightweight skin on top and a few extra pieces of software like WildTangent for games, Zinio for magazines, and Blio for eBooks.
