Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 3 Lineup Goes on Sale in the US

July 8, 2013 - Written By Alexander Maxham

If you’re looking to pick up a new Android tablet, and you’re tired of waiting on the new Nexus 7. Then you might want to check out Samsung’s new Galaxy Tab 3 lineup. Which includes a 7-inch, 8-inch and 10.1-inch tablet. Although, admittedly, the pricing of Samsung’s new tablets are a bit high, especially when comparing them to Lenovo’s tablets that just went on sale today.

As far as specs go, here’s what the Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 is rocking:

  • 1024×600 LCD display
  • dual-core 1.2GHz processor
  • 1GB of RAM
  • 8GB of internal storage
  • Priced at $199.99

The Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 is packing:

  • 1280×800 resolution display
  • 1.5GHz dual-core processor
  • 1.5GB of RAM
  • 16GB of internal storage
  • Priced at $299.99

Finally, the Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 has these specs:

  • Intel Atom Z2560 1.6GHz dual-core processor
  • 1280×800 LCD display
  • 1GB of RAM
  • 16GB of Storage
  • Priced at $399.99

The Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 and 8.0 both run on Android 4.2, while the 7-inch version is running on Android 4.1.2. There’s no word on when an update will be available for the 7-inch Galaxy Tab 3. But we’ll be on the look out for that. All three of these tablets are available in White and Brown (in my opinion, I wish they had the black color they used for the Galaxy S4, looks much better), and are available at Samsung and Amazon. They’ll probably be hitting Best Buy, Walmart and other retailers in a few months.

All three of these tablets have rather low-end specs, at least in my opinion. It will be interesting to see what people think about the Intel processors on the Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 model, since Intel chips aren’t all that popular in mobile yet. I’ll be interested to see how well or not so well it performs. If you’re one who likes Samsung’s new design language, with the physical home button and two capacitive buttons, you’ll definitely like this one.

How many of you are going to be picking up one of these Galaxy Tab 3’s? Let us know in the comments below.
