The Kindle Fire and the Galaxy Tab 7.0 are similar in many aspects. But at the same time they do not share the same market. One huge reason is the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus is going to run on T-Mobile’s 3G network and the Kindle Fire can only run on Wi-Fi. Having cellular radios alone would bump the price up $100 or more, but the Kindle Fire runs for the extremely affordable price of $199.
UPDATE: There will be a Wi-Fi version of the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus.
