It won't be heading to the U.S. anytime soon, but Samsung now has another entry in the 7-inch tablet computer sweepstakes with the Galaxy Tab 3. Like other so-called "phablets," the Tab 3 has calling capabilities, but not much more in the way of tech specifications than its Tab 2 predecessor. That could mean an aggressive price point to take on the low end of the market.Samsung on Monday announced the Galaxy Tab 3 7-inch mini tablet. The device will come with 8 or 16 MB of internal storage and up to 64 MB of expandable memory.
A WiFi-only version of the Galaxy Tab 3 will be available worldwide in May, and a 3G version will be launched in June. Product availability will vary by market in a gradual rollout.
"This announcement is for the global version of the Galaxy Tab 3," Samsung representative Makenzie Blythe told TechNewsWorld. "There have been no announcements for U.S. availability for the Galaxy Tab 3."
