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.

Hell of an Intel snub

That's one heck of a vote of confidence Samsung have in Intel, isn't it?
No mention of Intel anywhere in the press release, and the tech specs list the CPU as "Dual Core processor".

This does not look to me like Samsung have much faith in Atom; rather it looks like the usual Asian "throw random crap against the wall and see what sticks" model. We'll ship this, and if it sucks, well, tough for the customers who were stupid enough to buy it and in three months we'll release a different version with a different CPU.

You can find the official press release here:
http://www.samsungmobilepress.com/2013/06/03/Samsu...
and that web page shows all the elegance and design flair you'd expect from Samsung, with a little something extra --- it's completely broken if you try to increase the font size. How the hell do you even MAKE a web page that's this broken?
