FCC receives the Samsung SM-T310, possibly the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8.0
seen at the end of last month getting its Bluetooth SIG certification. The model number of the device seen getting certified was the SM-T311 which certainly could be a variant of the SM-T310. No matter how you slice it, it seems like both the SM-T310 and the SM-T311 are different versions of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8.0.
Unlike the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0, the Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 does not use an S Pen nor does it have any of the features associated with the Note series like multiwindows or Smart Stay. The device is expected to offer an 8 inch screen with resolution of 1280 x 800, and have a quad-core processor under the hood. The slate is said to be available only in white at first, and measure just 6.95mm thin.
While we have no clue as to when the tablet might be introduced and launched, visiting the FCC is one hurdle that can be crossed off the list of things to do before the slab is in buyers' hands.

Where's the rear camera? Don't tell me that the rear camera is not included on the Galaxy Tab 3 8.0!
Or maybe this is not the Galaxy Tab 3 8.0, probably a lower end Samsung tablet?

Maybe samsung removed the rear camera to reduce the price just like the nexus 7,or maybe samsung dont see a use of a rear camera on a tablet,or this illustration is wrong.sooo maaaanyy possibilities.

I remember properly, their Tab series is mid-end and their Note series is high-end. But I might be wrong, not to sure.

Funny how stupid people are with their perceptions. First people bitch about the price of the Note 8 because they are too stupid to realize the pen and wacom digitizer is actually expensive especially since wacom gets a decent cut.
Now that they are going to release a version without it that will be cheaper than any other 8 inch tablet people bitch. Go figure. Just Samsung hating I guess.

I just wish asus or samsung would release a 4:3 android tab. 16:9 is just too wide and really only good for movies. I'm going to use a tablet mainly for Web browsing not movies.
