Samsung adds a pair of tablets to its Galaxy Tab 3 family

Samsung has officially unveiled two new offerings in its Galaxy 3 series of tablets, which join the existing seven-inch tablet. The tablets include the Galaxy 3 8-inch and 10.1-inch tablets that will be offered globally starting in June.
 
The new eight-inch tablet is described as an optimal device for viewing videos, playing games, and reading e-books anywhere.

Samsung says that the tablet has a special reading mode optimizes the display to deliver perfect illumination for paper-like readability in a variety of lighting conditions. The tablet is also fitted with Samsung Sound Alive for Audio and Dolby Surround for Video Play.

The tablet features a 1.5GHz dual-core processor (paired with 1.5GB of RAM), 1280x800 display, and runs Android 4.2. The eight-inch tablet has a five-megapixel rear camera, 1.3-megapixel front camera and is available with Wi-Fi, 3G, or LTE connectivity. It is also fitted with GPS and uses a 4450 mAh internal battery. The tablet will be available in 16 GB or 32 GB varieties.

The Galaxy Tab 3 10.1-inch tablet uses a 1.6 GHz dual-core processor and a lackluster (for a 10.1” tablet) 1280x800 display. The large tablet features a three-megapixel rear camera and a 1.3-megapixel front camera. It supports various Samsung applications and has integrated GPS. It can be purchased with 16 GB or 32 GB of internal storage and has a memory card slot for expansion.

Optimal... you keep using that word, I don't think it means what you think it does.

LOL... I think he was saying that Samsung's press release calls it optimal. - is described as an optimal device.

I was pretty shocked when the Note 10 came out last year with that low res... Now a year later and the tab 10 still has it? Pass. I wouldnt even get that on a 7 inch tablet.

Well.... it is better than the 7" Galaxy Tab 3 they announced in May.

To be honest with you I would not choose either of these over an Asus/Google Nexus 7. When you consider that the N7 is almost a year older than these, I'm just not seeing the love here.

Yup... Samsung tablets have always been sort of... meh. That trend continues. I am waiting on the next Nexus7.

I could understand the resolution for the Note 10.1 due to the digitizer but a plain old tablet definitely should have a higher resolution these days especially considering the smaller S4 has a higher resolution!
My big immediate complaint are also the side facing speakers. I love the front facing ones on my Note 10.1 and making the sound go sideways isn't logical especially if they're going to say it's better for watching videos.
