Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 Android Tablet
We got an early look at this range of tablets earlier this year. The Galaxy Tab 3 family consists of three tablets: 7.0-inch, 8.0-inch and this 10.1-inch. This isn’t all that dissimilar to what Samsung has done in the past with its other tablets. Indeed, there was a 10.1-inch version of the Tab 2 and, if you scrouge around, you might be able to find used or refurbished models for as little as $230-$250 or so.
For the most part, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 (I really hate when companies put numbers next to one another like that, by the way) is an incremental improvement over the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 that it replaces. Indeed, Samsung even says that you get the “same Galaxy experience” here as your Galaxy smartphone.
Compared to the decidedly higher specs you’d get on a Galaxy Note 10.1 (2014 Edition) though, the Galaxy Tab 3 isn’t nearly as impressive. The 10.1-inch display is merely 1280 x 800, a lower resolution that the Galaxy S4 which has a screen one-quarter the size. Other specs include the 1.6GHz dual Core Intel Atom Z2560 processor, 1GB RAM, 16GB internal storage, microSD expansion, 3.2MP main camera and 1.3MP front-facing camera.
