This may not be too hot, but it's a reasonable deal for those who were considering buying the Samsung Tab 7.0 Plus from Expansys. The 7.0 Plus has a faster processor and a better front camera, but the Tab 2 7.0 is said to have better sound reproduction and runs Ice Cream Sandwich right out of the box. It has also had excellent reviews from users (check out the US Amazon website). The Tab 7.0 Plus should get ICS at some future date, but there's no knowing how long that might take. As someone who waited patiently for Bada 2.0 on my Wave 2 mobile, I can say that upgrading the OS is not always the great step forward we might want. It's for this reason that I've held off from upgrading to Honeycomb on my wife's HTC Flyer. The implementation of ICS on the new Tab 2 7.0 appears to be silky smooth and for this reason alone I reckon that for those who want a 7" tablet right now, the extra premium you pay over the Expansys deal is worth it.
