Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 Coming To India Soon!


In a tweet recently, Samsung India said that they will be launching the Tab 3 in India very soon. This effectively means that the Tabs have arrived. While there are many speculations regarding the price I think they will be reasonable.

Samsung generally does not get the pricing of their products wrong. I might be wrong obviously but their success till now gives me confidence.

Galaxy Tab 3 7.0

  • 7” WSVGA (1024×600 pixels)
  • Dual core Marvel Processor at 1.2 GHz
  • 1 GB RAM
  • 3 MP Rear and 1.3 MP Front Camera
  • 8 GB Internal with expandable storage
  • 4.1 Jelly Bean

Galaxy Tab 3 8.0

  • 8” WXGA TFT (1280×800 pixels)
  • 1.5 GHz dual-core Exynos processor with Mali 400 GPU
  • 1.5 GB RAM
  • 5 MP Rear camera and 1.3 MP Front Camera
  • 16 GB Internal with expandable storage
  • 4.2 Jelly Bean

Now I want to compare them with Nexus 7

  • 7” LCD (1280×800 pixels)
  • 1.2 GHz Nvidia Tegra 3 Quad core
  • 1 GB RAM
  • 32 GB internal
  • 1.2 Front Camera
  • 4.2 Jelly Bean

My motive behind this comparison must be clearly visible. Nexus 7 is last year’s tablet and it still might be faster than the two new launching Galaxy Tabs.

While, the tablets in themselves are not bad and with Samsung’s reliability and UI (Touch whiz) the experience should be good but they are offering nothing new on the table. I have been following Samsung Tablet’s journey since the beginning. I own the first one and it still serves me wonderfully and until Ice Cream Sandwich becomes obsolete it would continue to do so.

But since the dawn of Nexus 7 and the coming of Galaxy Note tablets, I find the regular tablets by Samsung becoming sidelined or irrelevant.

They have become the foot soldiers taking the war to the cheaper tablets while the big guys take the raw power. The 7” obviously has Nexus as its competition and it is a tough competition.

Still I feel, Samsung’s this year’s effort is not a great deal improvement on last year’s model. The only change they can do is price it at a lesser point.

Even with that, I do not see these tablets having the charisma to lure a customer who has an older Galaxy Tab or even a tablet of any other decent brand. Unless of course Samsung can bring something special out of their hat!

What do you think? Has Samsung become complacent with their tablets?
