Samsung has announced its latest generation Galaxy Tab device today. Dubbed as Galaxy Tab 3, the tablet will be released in Wi-Fi only and 3G + Wi-Fi versions. According to a press release issued by the company, Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7-inch Wi-Fi only version will go on sale in May, followed by 3G version in June.
The tablet does not really feature any huge improvements over the last generation Galaxy Tab device. Galaxy Tab 3 comes with a 7-inch display with poor 1024x600p resolution. It is powered by 1.2GHz dual-core processor and runs on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.
Samsung has realised that budget tablet market is more lucrative than high-end tablets, which hardly sell. If these features are any indication, we can expect to see $150-$169 price-tag for the Wi-Fi version.
The tablet will be competing with Acer’s Iconia B1, HP Slate 7 and Asus Fonepad tablets.
As you can see in the image, Samsung is using Galaxy Note 8.0 like design with Tab 3 with physical Home button back in tablets.
