10.1-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 tablet is announced packing 1.6GHz Intel processor
A bit over one month after the 7-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 was made official, the Korean tech giant now announced a 10.1-inch member of the series. The 10.1-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 comes with a 1280 by 800 pixel TFT display, 1GB of RAM, 3MP main camera, 1.3MP front-facing snapper, and either 16 or 32GB of on-board storage that can be expanded with the use of a microSD card. Android 4.2 is pre-loaded, with the usual UI modifications in the form of Samsung's TouchWiz interface.

But most importantly, Samsung has chosen to equip the 10.1-inch Galaxy Tab 3 model with a dual-core Intel processor running at 1.6GHz. This makes the device one of the first Intel-based Android tablets by Samsung, the 8-inch Tab 3 variant being the second of this kind. (Note: Samsung has not confirmed whether the processor used in the Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 is made by Intel or not. The claim was made earlier today by Reuters.)

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 also stands out with being very portable, with a thickness of under 8 millimeters and tipping the scales at 510 grams. Versions with 3G/4G cellular connectivity will be available as well. Details about pricing and availability of the 10.1-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 have yet to be announced.

Oh my god, really Samsung? A 10.1 inch tablet with a physical button and two capacitive buttons? This tablet is ugly.

They should have used on screen buttons. What if you're in portrait mode? you still have to reach out for those small buttons. What was samsung thinking when making this tablet?For all galaxies to look a like?

Theres still hope for an updated nexus 10 later this year.

The new asus infinity looks way better than this, all samsung really put in this thats good is intel.

I like the physical buttons for the 7 and 8 inch size cause I hate the screen estate on screen takes (have the nexus 7) but have to agree on a 10" where the screen is big, on screen makes sense and the physical and capacitive buttons just look wiered

what would you expect?? samesung will never be able to make a great design... thats why they always copy others, and put gimmicky stuffs to attract stupid buyers.

it's a photocopy yes, but calling them copycats is a bit cliche now. 3 years ago maybe?

thats why i said they can only copy others, now take a look at this tab 3 when they try to make their own design...

Is Samsung inspired by its design? Why the hell they don't change the design?

And the most uninspiring design department of the year goes to ... *drumroll* Samsung!

I find funny that people say Apple recycles their designs while their favorite manufacturer Samsung is doing the same, a billion times, so far every galaxy in 2013 looks the same.

This is major win for intel, right now this is as good as a15. The Silvermont cpus coming later this year are 2-3x the power of a15.

Poor res, only 1GB of RAM and a just another copy and paste design. Like have they surpassed their 2000th photocopying machine yet?

Don't you wish. Samsung tabs usually are the same price as the high end tabs, $400-$500, if not more since they are using Intel processors

Actually tablet of the year goes to the Haswell tablets running windows 8. If you like Samsung products they will probably release some eventually with haswell + windows 8.

Donjunior and Wendy garett are two different people. If you'll even look at the lumia vs s4 review you'll notice that both of them commented at th same time. It wouldn't make sense if Wendy uses two devices to comment at the same time. Besides I chat him on whatsapp,he is not donjunior

1280x800 on a 10'' tablet is pretty lame, this will be a low end tablet, as confirmed by the 3mp rear camera. Recall that 1280x800 is the resolution of a nexus7 and that the new nexus7 will sport a 1920x1200 7'' display! So 1280x800 on a 10'' display means... really low end tablet.
Also, 1GB of ram is the minimum. And so the reason why Samsung chose Intel is probably beacause... it's a cheaper chipset. Don't expect much from this tablet.

Even though this tablet isn't nothing amazing I still think there's a market for it. I just hope that Samsung releases a high tablet this year because to me this tablet is definitely not high end. I do think it would be better if it had onscreen buttons though.

I cant say I'm a fan of physical buttons on a bigger tablet, but I think Samsung is attempting to provide a semi uniform design for their newer Galaxy branded devices, as this helps in "brand awareness" & helps average consumers more easily identify Samsungs Galaxy products from the competition.. Again, in my humble opinion, physical navigation buttons in Android have no place on such a big device that is prone to be constantly rotated between landscape and portrait modes, but I think I see where Samsung is trying to go with this.

On a side note, 1GB of RAM & ANOTHER 720p display on a 10.1 tablet? Common now...

I bet you they'll ask $350-400 for it, which is WAY too much for this crappy specs.
