Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 Stories June 24, 2013

Galaxy Tab 3 series coming to the US on July 7, pricing starts at $199

Samsung has announced that its Galaxy Tab 3 series of devices is finally coming to the United States next month. The family of devices, which includes 7-inch, 8-inch, and 10.1-inch models will go up for sale on July 7th from bricks-and-mortar retailers such as Best Buy, Wal-Mart, and Office Depot, as well as Samsung’s own online store.

The Galaxy Tab 3 has various form factors and light-weight builds, which quickly and easily transition into the center of the home. Research shows that 85% of tablet users watch TV while using their tablet, with 41% of them doing this daily.** For this consumer, each Galaxy Tab 3 portfolio device’s built-in IR blaster turns the tablets into a universal remote and can activate Samsung’s innovative WatchONTM service. This service recommends TV shows and on-demand content, enabling the tablets to function as the hub of the living room and king of second screen consumption.

The base Galaxy Tab 3 7.0, which includes a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, Android 4.1, and 8GB of storage, will run just $199. The larger Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 packs a 1.5GHz dual-core Exynos processor and Android 4.2 and will cost $299. Finally, the Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 is powered by an Intel Z2560 clocked at 1.6GHz and will cost $399.

While we knew from earlier reports that Samsung was planning on unveiling a new high end tablet with an Intel processor, today Samsung has officially announced the device alongside a new 8-inch variant of its Galaxy Tab 3 line.

Adding to the 7-inch variant that it launched back in April, Samsung today announced the 10.1-inch Galaxy Tab 3 (which it later confirmed is indeed using a 1.6GHz dual-core processor from Intel), as well as an 8-inch variant of the device with a 1.5GHz dual-core CPU.

Inside the 10.1-inch model you’ll find 1280 x 800, 149PPI WXGA TFT display, a 3-megapixel main camera and 1.3-megapixel front facing cam, Bluetooth 4.0, microSD slot, and a 6,800 mAh battery. It weighs in at 510g for the WiFi only model, but will also be available with 3G and LTE capabilities when it launches running Android 4.2 later this month.

The 8-inch version comes with a 1280 x 800, 189PPI WXGA TFT display, 5-megapixel cam on the back, 1.3-megapixel on the front, Bluetooth 4.0, a 4,450 mAh battery, microSD expandable to 64GB, and the rest of the usual specs you find in Sammy’s tablets.
