Galaxy Tab Seven Will Run Gingerbread 2.3.4

The original GalTab is a tough beast to love. It ran an outdated version of Android in the face of an onslaught of Honeycomb tablets (remember, this was November 2010 when it was launched) and everyone hated on it for being underpowered. Well, the next version should be a bit swifter and, more importantly, run an updated version of Android Gingerbread, 2.3.4.

The folks at HDBlog have some images and specs on the new device. Basically you’re getting a giant Galaxy S2 with this model as it features an older, more stable OS with multiple telephony features.

Here are the specs. Expect this beast to arrive this fall

Exynos 1.2 GHz processor
1Gb Ram
2GB of ROM
16GB of internal memory
Micro SD
Tab proprietary connector with USB Host capabilities (adapter)
7 inch WSVGA
IPS technology for the display
Ability to call, video call and send sms
Touch Wiz 4.0 halfway between that and the Honeycomb dell’S2
