Samsung Galaxy Tab 7 Plus Looking for a full featured Android tablet that does more than the Nook Tablet and Kindle Fire? The Samsung Galaxy Tab 7 Plus runs Android OS 3.2 Honeycomb with all the bells and whistles, including a very fast dual core 1.2GHz CPU, dual cameras, GPS, WiFi, Bluetooth and a microSD card slot. It has Samsung’s pleasing TouchWiz software and full access to Android staples like the Android Market, YouTube, Gmail and Maps.It’s currently the thinnest and lightest 7″ Android tablet on the market. This is a video review. Nov. 2011 Samsung Galaxy Tab 7 Plus review
T-Mobile Springboard This is T-Mobile’s latest 7″ Android Honeycomb tablet, and it’s made by Huawei. This moderately priced tablet is made with quality materials and we like the metal framing and aluminum back. It has a high resolution, 1280 x 800 pixel display, a resolution that’s more commonly seen in 10″ tablets, and it’s plenty sharp with good viewing angles. It’s no slouch on computing power with a 1.2GHz dual core CPU, a gig of RAM and 16 gigs of storage. The tablet has 3G/4G on T-Mobile in the US, and it has WiFi, Bluetooth and a GPS. Dual cameras round out the feature set. Nov. 2011 T-Mobile Springboard review
LG G-Slate In the endless parade of Android Honeycomb tablets that’s just starting, the LG G-Slate stands out thanks to 4G HSPA+ and 3D video recording. We love 4G, and T-Mobile’s HSPA+ network is second only to LTE for data speeds, but we could live without the gimmicky 3D video recording and dizzying complimentary 3D glasses. The G-Slate runs on the usual dual core Tegra 2 1GHz CPU and it has 32 gigs of internal storage. The 8.9″ display is just a bit smaller than the Motorola Xoom and the 10″ competition, but it’s bright and sharp. This tablet is a quality piece, but you’ll pay a pretty price for it.

Dell Streak 7 This 7″ Android 2.2 tablet has a 7″ multi-touch capacitive Gorilla Glass display running at 800 x 480 resolution and a dual core Tegra 2 1GHz CPU. Like the Galaxy Tab, it’s a tablet that doesn’t make phone calls over the cellular network; it’s data-only. The Streak 7 has 4G HSPA+, WiFi 802.11b/g/n, Bluetooth and a GPS that works with Google Maps and Navigation. It’s a bit less expensive than the Samsung Tab, but makes some concessions in display quality and battery life. Feb. 2011 Dell Streak 7 review
Samsung Galaxy Tab The first Android tablet that’s a viable iPad opponent, the Galaxy Tab is offered by all 4 major US carriers and has a lot to love. The Tab has a 7″ capacitive display running at 1024 x 600 and Android OS 2.2 Froyo. Like the Galaxy S phones, the Tab runs on a 1GHz Hummingbird CPU with GPU, has 512 megs of RAM, lots of storage, WiFi 802.11b/g/n, Bluetooth and a GPS. All Galaxy Tab models have 3G data but US versions cannot make calls over the cellular network. We review the T-Mobile, AT&T, Sprint and Verizon versions. Dec. 2010 Samsung Galaxy Tab review
