Even though Samsung launched its Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus tablet in the United States a few days ago, it looks like Indonesia is among the first countries that officially gets the slate as well.
Samsung Indonesia has just announced that the tablet is now available for purchase in seven major cities in the country, including Jakarta, Surabaya, Bandung, Samarinda, Balikpapan, Makassar and Medan.
The Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus is available for Rp 500,499,000 (615 USD or 450 EUR), but customers may be eligible for various discounts meant to sweeten the deal.
Furthermore, Samsung stated that more than 1,200 Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus units will be available in the city of Jakarta starting today, though the company reported that only 350 customers reserved the tablet before the official launch.
However, according to Eka Anwar, Samsung Indonesia's Head of Marketing Communications, the company expects to sell all Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus units in just a few days.
It is also worth mentioning that customers who purchase the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus using Mandiri credit cards will receive a Rp 500,000 (56 USD or 41 EUR) discount granted by the Mandiri Bank.
“We are working with Mandiri Bank, a discount price amounting to Rp 500,000 granted by the Mandiri Bank, and we are providing additional accessories valued at Rp 1,000,000,” added Anwar.
Those unfamiliar with the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus specs sheet should know that the tablet comes with a 7-inch PLS LCD capacitive touchscreen display with 600 x 1024 pixels resolution support, and is powered by Android 3.2 Honeycomb platform with TouchWiz UX user interface on top.
On the inside, the tablet is equipped with a 1.2 GHz dual-core processor, 16/ 32 GB of internal memory, 1 GB of RAM and microSD card slot for memory expansion (up to 64GB).
