Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus is coming to T-Mobile USA on Nov. 16 and all it'll take to get in in your hands is a $249.99 down payment (after a $50 mail-in rebate) and a two-year data plan.

That's right, a down payment. Once the contract is agreed to and the down payment is paid, Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus ownership will include "20 interest free monthly payments of $10 on approved credit," T-Mobile said in a statement.

After the down payment, mail-in rebate and 20 $10 payments, the total cost of the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus  hits $449.99.

Those already on contract for a T-Mobile phone will get a $10 discount off of their monthly data plan cost.

The Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus on T-Mobile, like the Wi-Fi only version of the tablet, will run Google's Android Honeycomb operating system, feature a 7-inch touch screen with a resolution of 1024 x 600 pixels and a 1.2-gigahertz dual-core processor.

The new Samsung device will also feature 16-gigabytes of built-in storage, a microSD card slot for those looking for more storage space, a 3-megapixel rear camera that can shoot up to 720p video and a 2-megapixel camera out front.
