Samsung announces the Galaxy Tab 3

Gee that was fast. Just moments after hearing about a Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 in the works , the South Korean technology giant that is Samsung took the wraps off the 3rd generation Galaxy Tab. But contrary to previous rumors, the new tablet sports a 7-inch form factor. It seems that Samsung has decided to forego the 8-inch size in order to avoid confusing the tablet with the recently launch Galaxy Note 8.0.

Plus, considering that Apple is poised to launch a new iPad mini anytime soon, the 7-inch size seemed like the perfect weapon. The Galaxy Tab 3 is powered by a 1.2GHz dual-core processor and 1GB of RAM. It has a 3-megapixel rear-camera and a 1.3-megapixel camera, and it is running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. The display resolution is average at 1024 x 600 and the PPI is quite low at 169. However, on top of the 8GB and 16GB storage options, users can enjoy the nifty microSD card slot. The Galaxy Tab 3 also has a 4,000 mAh battery.
