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.

It can be purchased with 16 GB or 32 GB of internal storage and has a memory card slot for expansion.

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.
