Amazon wants $400 for the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus tablet, comes with an IR blaster and Smart Remote app
Amazon is now carrying the 7" Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus Android tablet for $399 in its 16GB reincarnation, and asks $499 for the 32 gigger. Not a bad start for the successor of the first brand name Android tablet, the Samsung Galaxy Tab, and the price is sure to go down more.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus sports a bright 7" PLS LCD display of Samsung's own make and technology, with 1024x600 pixels of resolution. It also has a dual-core 1.2GHz processor, 3MP rear camera that can shoot HD video, and a 2MP front-facing cam for video chat.

The nice part is that it comes with 4G HSPA+ 21Mbps baseband radio, so you can just pop in a SIM card and are good for downloads on the go. Besides the 16GB and 32GB versions, it also has a microSD card expansion slot that can take cards up to 64GB. The tablet is 0.39" (9.9mm) thick, and weighs 12 ounces (345g).

What sets it apart from other 7-inchers is the presence of an infrared blaster, which comes complete with the Smart Remote app, powered by Peel, which allows you to control TVs and other IR-equipped gear in the house straight from your couch.

I am getting this for my wife. Her birthday was the Oct. 25th. She is so happy the tablet is out. She always wanted a smaller tablet!

Ordered mine today. I'll put my 10.1 up on eBay. I really like the 7" form factor (I had the original Tab) and along with Honeycomb this should be a great tablet. And then there's also the update to ICS to look forward to.
