Samsung sleeks up Galaxy Tab 3
Samsung on Monday unveiled a sleek update to its Galaxy Tab product line, the 7-in. Galaxy Tab 3.
The new white Galaxy Tab 3 is slightly smaller and lighter than the Tab 2 7.0, but nonetheless supports more expandable memory.
The updated device still runs Android 4.1, the same OS in the Tab 2, and uses the same size battery, at 4,000 mAh, and the same dual core 1.2 GHz processor.
Pricing for the new device and the carriers supporting it have not yet been announced. Samsung did say in a statement that a Wi-Fi version of the Tab 3 will be available worldwide in May, and a 3G version in June.
Samsung focused on using a thinner bezel in the Tab 3, reducing the device's overall width and length while maintaining the 7-in screen size.
Overall, the Tab 3 is about a half-inch narrower and one-third of an inch shorter in length than the Tab 2.
