Some users like small tablets with which to make and receive phone calls as well as be more productive when away from the desk — and a mobile phone screen just won’t cut it. The new seven-inch WSVGA (1024 x 600 pixel) Galaxy Tab 3, just announced by Samsung (via The Verge), may fill that void if you thought the eight-inch version was just a little bit too big.
The new Android 4.1 tablet comes packed with a dual-core 1.2GHz processor under the hood, powering a 3-megapixel back camera and 1.3-megapixel front facing camera along with a 4,000mAh battery. Samsung will be releasing two models: a Wi-Fi only model — perfect for those using VoIP and messaging apps for their day to day communication needs — and a 3G version (sorry, no 4G LTE this time) for making and receiving calls. Those on global mobile networks may find this model to be of particular interest.
With a smaller display, Samsung is hoping to market the new slab to the more budget-conscious crowd, although the company has yet to announce specific pricing for the device. Samsung did say, though, that the Wi-Fi version will launch “globally” in May, while the 3G model will follow in June.
