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.

You can get other products at MSRP or lower, even on sale too. That same rule goes for both sides. Right now, the far superior Nook HD with 1440x900 screen is $129 and a yet unreleased tab7 with 1024x600 is $199? Even if its knocked down to $149 its a ripoff.
Also coming in July, we will have a Nexus 7 refresh with 1920x1200 for $229 if not lower. This price point makes no sense for anyone. Not the low end, not the middle , not the high end.
The only thing it will be good for is to trick some elderly tablet buyers out of their money because they don't know any better... unless that is the point. LOL
