Today, Samsung revealed the Galaxy Tab 3, a 7-inch tablet, a slim mobile device that may be able to directly compete with the smaller tablet ranges offered by rivals Apple, Amazon, and Google.
The South Korean electronics maker's latest tablet offering sports a 1024x600 pixel screen -- although perhaps underwhelming at today's standards -- but is able to support full 1080p HD playback. The Galaxy Tab 3 is powered by a dual-core 1.2GHz processor, and is available with either 8GB or 16GB of storage and 1GB of RAM.
In addition, Samsung's new mobile device comes with a microSD slot for up to 64GB of additional storage space.
The tablet uses the latest Android operating system, 4.1 Jelly Bean. In addition, the 111.1x188x9.9mm tablet sports a 3-megapixel rear camera and a 1.3-megapixel front camera system. The Wi-Fi-only version weighs 302 grams, whereas the Wi-Fi/3G model is a touch heavier at 306 grams.
According to Samsung, the Wi-Fi version will be available worldwide from next month, whereas the Wi-Fi/3G version will be hitting store shelves in June. Tablet availability will depend on individual markets, and the device will be rolled out gradually.
Pricing for the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 is yet to be released.
