Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 devices now available in stores

galaxy tab 3 10 inch white front

If you’ve been looking for semi-affordable tablets from Samsung, listen up — their latest line of Galaxy Tab devices is now available in stores. I’m referring to the Galaxy Tab 3, of course, a series of devices ranging from 7 inches all the way through 10.1 inches. The devices come in either white or a golden brown, and can be had for $199.99, $299.99, and $399.99, respectively.

For that, you’re getting mostly dual-core silicon clocked between 1.2GHz and 1.5GHz, with 1GB to 1.5GB of RAM, depending on which devices you opt for. Resolutions vary from 1024 x 600 (7-inch) and 1280 x 800 (8-inch and 10.1-inch). There are other minor differences between the three which you’ll want to check out, so be sure to find the entire line of devices at Samsung’s site and check the specs for which one you’re interested in.

And if you’ve decided on walking away with one, note that you can take your business to Best Buy and Best Buy Mobile, Amazon, Wal-Mart, h.h. Gregg, Office Depot, Toys ‘R’ Us, P.C. Richard & Son, Fry’s, Newegg, Sears and Samsung.com. That’s a lot of variety and flexibility, so make your decision and let us know if you’re in for one in the comments below.

    That blows my mind. Why would anyone bother buying a G tab 3 10.1 when you could get a N10… for the same price.

    • loony2nz

      Agreed. The people who will buy this are buying on brand name alone (samsung has become a household name by now) and don’t know there’s a Nexus version that’s better at the same price. Goes to show…advertising works

        The even better part is that it’s also made by Samsung, lol!

        The 7 very much leaves me feeling
        as though Im holding a budget tablet. Maybe not as budget as Acer, but
        certainly not on par with what one would expect from Samsung. Then again
        it’s only $200. The 8 certainly steps up the game and it is arguably
        better looking than the Note 8. If I could have the internal specs from
        the Tab 8 in the little brother’s footprint, well I’d be typing this
        from that device instead of the 8.

    They’re also running 4.2.2.

      My main gripe with Tab 3 is it does not support multi-users even though it has Android 4.2.2. Multi-user support is one of the most advertised features of this version of Android and Samsung chose not to put it in!

    If the 10.1 had a better display, I may have been obligated to get one. Alas, I’ll stick with my Nexus 10.

  • guitarist5122

    Wow, so they not only did almost nothing to improve over the tab 2,but they also have a hideous home button with capacitive buttons. How about we leave those types of buttons for the phones Samsung?

    • PooPooTron

      agreed. that really inhibits the ability to rotate the tablet to optimal position

      • SamsungFan

        It’s a personal preference. I have the S3 and just bought Tab 3 8.0 and love the physical home button. In portrait mode the home button is comfortably near my thumb. I’m always amused by how people take one perspective or preference and call everything else hideous or stupid.

      I have a Tab 2 and S3 and look forward to the physical home button. I despise having the soft buttons on the bottom in landscape mode.

      • guitarist5122

        I have a tab 2 and note 2. I can’t imagine why you would want buttons that don’t make it easy to use a tablet in portrait mode. Most people probably prefer portrait. Still fully believe this is a bad idea for tablets.

    nice

  • AdrianP513

    A stretched out S3, Note 2, S4 and possibly Note 3. Great. I like the design of the tab 2 better.

  • Harry Knopp

    I would go for a Nexus 10 in a heartbeat if it had expandable memory. I think I will take advantage of the GT2 clearance prices instead.

    For those that have the 16GB

    how my available storage do you get, to use?
