Samsung reveals budget Galaxy Tab 3

Manufacturer: Samsung
Format: Android
Try not to get too excited, but Samsung has announced another new tablet. This time it's the 7-inch Galaxy Tab 3, a low/mid-range tablet that will come as a wi-fi only model or with wi-fi and 3G.

And, yes, you can even make calls if you want.

It might not set the world alight with its 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 1024x600-pixel display, 3-megapixel camera, and fairly miserly 8 or 16GB of internal storage, but if you don't need a tablet to be incredibly powerful and want to save a few pounds this might be a good choice.

That does of course depend on how much Samsung will be selling them for, although you can expect the Tab 3 to be the sort of tablet that will come bundled with a new mobile phone purchase on contract.

Spot the difference: Wi-fi vs 3G (Answer: it's the earpiece)

The Galaxy Tab 3 comes with Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) and the new-look Samsung Hub, which now brings all of the various Hubs we've seen previously into one place (Music, Game, Video, and Learning).

Other vital statistics include a 4000mAh battery, external card slot, dual-channel wi-fi, and the tablet itself measuring 111.1x188x9.9mm and weighing in at 302g for the wi-fi model (due for release in May) and 306g for the 3G one (June).
