Samsung's latest tablets get priced
Samsung officially announced its new
Galaxy Tab 3 series earlier this month
with tablets ranging in size from 7" to 10.1". Today, the South Korean company has announced pricing for the tablets.
The Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 will be priced at $199. This device features a meager 1024x600 display, a 1.2GHz dual-core processor and 8GB of internal storage.
The $299 Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 slightly ups the ante with a 1280x800 display, 1.5GHz dual-core processor (1.5GM of system RAM) and 16GB of storage.
The Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 forgoes the ARM-based processors in its smaller brother and instead adopts a
1.6GHz dual-core Intel Z2560 processor
(and just 1GB of system RAM). Despite the larger screen size, the 10.1" model is still saddled with a 1280x800 display.
Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 in "Gold Brown"
Each tablet in the Galaxy Tab 3 series comes with a microSD slot for storage expansion, a built-in IR blaster which turns the devices into universal remotes, support for Samsung's WatchON TV recommendation service, and will be available in white or "Gold Brown". The two larger models come equipped with Android 4.2 while the smallest member of the family makes do with Android 4.1.
Pre-orders for the devices begin tomorrow, with nationwide availability in store like Newegg, Frys, Best Buy, Amazon, and Walmart starting on July 7.

On second thought...

My initial reaction to an Android tablet having hardware buttons was to laugh, but now that I think about it it's pretty interesting.
I really appreciate Samsung's dedication to the 16:10 aspect, although for tablets I tend to prefer 4:3.

16x10 is the most common aspect ratio for Android tablets... The only thing Samsung is doing
than other manufacturers is offering slower processors and lower res screens at higher prices. There is absolutely nothing good about the Samsung tab series, unless you had a time machine to 2011. Then they would be decent.

The hardware buttons are nice, as you can use the full screen without wasting space for the buttons. I have a Nook HD+, and the screen is nice, but I feel like too much space is wasted on the buttons - at least in landscape mode. I think there is a way to get rid of the on-screen buttons on the nook, but I'm not sure how that will effect usability.
