Galaxy Tab 3 will launch in May
Samsung has officially announced its new 7” Galaxy Tab 3, which will be available in Wi-Fi or 3G versions. The tablet is designed to be extremely portable and is narrow enough to be held in one hand.
The 7” screen has a resolution of 1024 x 600 and a pixel density of 169 pixels per inch. The operating system for the tablet will be Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. Don’t expect to take any high quality pictures with the Galaxy Tab 3, as it has just a 1.3-megapixel front camera and a three-megapixel rear camera.
The processor under the hood is 1.2 GHz dual-core unit paired with 1 GB of RAM. The Galaxy Tab 3 will be offered with either 8 GB or 16 GB of internal storage -- all versions of the tablet have a microSD card slot supporting up to 64 GB of additional storage.
All versions of the tablet feature 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz Wi-Fi support, Wi-Fi Direct, Bluetooth 3.0, and USB 2.0 ports. The tablet also has an integrated accelerometer, light sensors, and more the tablet also features A-GPS and GLONASS.
The Wi-Fi version of the tablet will launch in May, with the 3G version launching in June. Pricing is unannounced at this time.

Another new tablet worth a look at is the Novo 7 Venus that launched last month that's available for $149 through a site called TabletSprint - this new model runs Android 4.2 and compares closely to the Nexus 7 - featuring a Quad Core processor and HD 1280x800 IPS Screen; while also offering a few features the Nexus doesn't - including a 2-Megapixel rear camera, a MicroSD memory card slot, and HDMI 1080p; plus a 4000 mAh battery and Google Play store preinstalled. This tablet is made by Ainol Electronics, which is known for winning runner-up for Best Tablet of the Year at CES 2012. TabletSprint also includes $25 in Bonus Apps.
Also launching in early May and available through TabletSprint is the Icoo 7GT - 3G Model for $199, which rivals the Nexus 7 - 3G version that's priced $100 more -- the Icoo 7GT - 3G offers a built-in SIM slot for 3G HSPA+ connection with both Internet access and Voice Calling through any GSM Network such as AT&T and T-Mobile; and also features a Quad Core processor, an HD 1280x800 IPS Screen, and built-in GPS; as well as a Rear 5 Megapixel Camera, a MicroSd Memory Card slot, Android 4.1 O/S, Google Play store, and an HDMI 1080p port with 4K HD output to stream video & movies to a TV.
Overall, both of these new models are pretty impressive for the features they offer and price.

I like the idea of a 16:10 screen, but the reviews aren't that great for the Novo on NewEgg:
"Intel is investing heavily (think gazillions of dollars and bazillions of engineering man hours) in resources to create an Intel host controllers spec in order to speed time to market of the USB 3.0 technology." -- Intel blogger Nick Knupffer
