Entry-level 7-inch tablet should be inexpensive

Samsung has pulled the covers off the new Galaxy Tab 3 Lite. The tablet features a 7” display with a meager resolution of 1024 x 600. If you’re looking for the latest version of Android, you’ll have to look elsewhere – the Galaxy Tab 3 Lite comes preloaded with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean.
 
In keeping with the tablet’s budget roots, the processor is a 1.2GHz dual core unit paired with 1GB of RAM. The tablet has only 8GB of internal storage and a microSD card slot for storage expansion. And Samsung has seen fit to only include one camera on the tablet – a 2MP rear shooter.



 
Samsung promises up to eight hours of video playback per charge thanks to its 3600 mAh battery.
 
The tablet will ship globally in white or black colors, however, it is unclear when the Galaxy Tab 3 Lite will launch and how much it will cost.

it will be competing with the likes of Coby and Polaroid tablets, so it will have to match them in price.


Not really, Coby and Polaroid have no brand recognition in the mobile space.

But a GALAXY tablet? Nah, it's not going to be sub-$100.

No, they don't have much brand recognition. Well, Polaroid used to have good name, but not in this market. But what they do have is similarly spec'd tablets dirt cheap. Unless someone was dead set on the Galaxy name, what does this offer that isn't available from any number of cheap brands? Paying a premium for a Note 3 might makes sense because it offers something no other Android tablet does, as far as I know. On the other hand, paying a premium for this is paying extra just to be seen carrying a trendy name. Some might be willing to do so, but I bet that most brand-conscious people will go for the higher end Galaxy models and most people looking for a bargain will go with the cheapest, whether or not it is Samsung.

Because people know about the Galaxy, they don't know about the others, so they aren't going to buy them.

Also even with these specs, I have to believe this is a better built tablet than the Coby. I mean, come on lol. Reviewers are saying those are a bad proposition at ANY price.

But this is all speculation, for all we know this could be priced as cheap.

True, I had a Coby MP3 player once and it struggled to get 3 hours of play on a charge.
