The long-rumored affordable member of Samsung's Galaxy Tab family is now official as the 7" Tab3 Lite, just as we've heard. The 'Lite', instead of 'PRO', moniker, should hint that we are dealing with rock bottom pricing, and the specs to match...

...but not the same rock-bottom price everywhere. Heck, even availability is an issue

This is basically a Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 with Android 4.2, and speaking of the Tab 3 7.0, it's still running Android 4.1.

Samsung should've update the Tab 3 7.0 to at least 4.2 instead of making the same tablet with new Android version. What a waste.

It is 2014 and they still use 800x480 res in phones. What's your point?

PPI my friend. Anything below 200 ppi is harsh for such mobile device.

This is useless, the tab 3 7'' is already affordable enough, why make another variation?

This is Samsung saying: "Look at how much money we can waste and how much more we will earn!"

I still have my Galaxy Tab 2, and despite the improvements in quality and performance, I don't feel a need to get the Tab 3. I definitely won't feel a need to get this tablet, especially if it's no real improvement from what I already have. The Kindle Fire HD, going as low as $139, beats it on almost every level, though lack of microSD expansion and front-facing camera may be a turn-off.
