    Samsung Galaxy Tab 3

    Samsung’s new Galaxy Tab 3 now have a U.K. release date, according to a page on retailer Carphone Warehouse’s website.

    According to the retailer, you will be able to purchase all three members of the Galaxy Tab 3 range starting with July. And while that’s good news if you were planning to upgrade your gadget portfolio with the Galaxy Tab 3 7.0, 8.0, or 10.1, no information on prices is specified on the page.

    As you may remember, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 has been officially announced at the end of April, followed, after quite a few rumors, by the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 and 10.1, which were confirmed by Samsung at the beginning of last week.

    Retailer Adorama had the prices of the Tab 3 devices listed on its website a while ago. Of course, those are indicative at best, but they can still give you an idea on what to expect. The Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 supposedly costs $199, while the 16GB Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 was said to cost $329.99. The 16GB Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 was listed at $379.99, but we’ll have exact prices soon enough.

    If you need a refresher, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 has a 1024 x 600 pixels display and is driven by a dual-core CPU running at 1.2 GHz, accompanied by 1GB of RAM memory. It has a 3MP rear camera, a 1.3MP front shooter, and up to 16GB of internal storage, expandable via microSD slot. The seven incher features a 4000 mAh battery and runs Android Jelly Bean 4.1.

    The largest member of the range is the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1, which has an Intel dual-core chip running at 1.6GHz, helped by 1GB of RAM. Internal memory is 16 or 32GB and the 10.1-inch display has a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels and a pixel density of 149 PPI.

      Tempting? None. Samsung has some very weird fetish towards low-resolution displays. 1280×800 on 10″ ? Really? It’s still 1999 where the Samsung Tab division exists? My ASUS Infinity has 1920×1200 resolution and that’s a year old model. The next model has the same resolution as the Nexus 10 – 2560×1600 on 10″. That’s FOUR times the display resolution of the Tab3.

      I guess it’s time to refresh the staff in the Tab division…. (as in… replace).

        agreed! and why did they put a physical button on a 10″ tablet? maybe “Sammy” is trying to hard not to make something good for the end-user…
