Tech giant Samsung has reported its lowest quarterly profit in eight years this week an indicator to the weakened global economy to hit PC…
You know what they say: “Safety in numbers.” Samsung is proudly standing by this ancient motto as it announces the pricing and dates for the new Galaxy Tab 3 family, aptly named the 7.0, 8.0 and 10.1.
Samsung already has a horde of devices being announced day in and day out it seems. The company’s flooding the tablet and smartphone market and filling all possible cracks and niche competition. Needless to say, the company’s started to face a naming dilemma. It’s manufacturing faster than it would take coming up with catchy product names.
Not to confuse you with the numbers now, Techcrunch reports the Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 has a 1024 X 600 display and is 4.37 inches wide. This 7-inch seems to be a cheaper option than the 8.0 and 10.1 models and is meant for users who are keen to consume entertainment on the go. It won’t run the latest Android version and will host a cheapish processor with 8 GB and expandable microSD storage. This Wi-Fi version will go for a decent US$200.
On the other sum of things, there are the 8.0 which comes with an 8-inch 12800 X 800 screen while the 10.1 gives you a 10-inch 1280×800. Both have the newest version of Android and a 5-megapixel rear camera. The 8.0 version adds multi-window support, so you can run two applications at the same time on the same screen. It also has a microSD slot with 16 GB of memory. It’s to be available for US$299.
The Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 goes for US$399 and, like the rest of them, comes with a US$10 Google Play voucher. This goes on top of other friendly freebies like one free year of Boingo’s hotspot service, a complimentary three-month subscription to Hulu Plus and 50GB of free Dropbox storage of two years.
Given these pecks, prices and perks of these devices, it seems that they’re aimed at casual content consumers of our internet generation. A market that’s apparently very attractive and well growing. These three guys will be available 7 July while you can start pre-ordering them today online.
