Galaxy Tab3 Lite official as Samsung's budget tablet warrior for the season

Galaxy Tab 3 Lite official as Samsung's budget tablet warrior
The long-rumored affordable member of Samsung's Galaxy Tab family is now official as the 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.

Indeed, the Samsung Gallaxy Tab3 Lite carries just a 7-inch WSVGA (1024 X 600 pixels) display, a 1.2 GHz dual-core CPU of unspecified make, 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of internal memory only, and a microSD slot. The 3600 mAh battery now doesn't seem small, as with this screen and processor it will likely be perfectly adequate, as Samsung is quoting eight hours of video playback on a charge from it. We'll be also getting a 2 MP camera on the rear, a front-facing cam, and decent connectivity options - Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n/ (2.4GHz), Wi-Fi Direct, BT4.0, GPS, and USB 2.0. There will also be a 3G version of the slate, with a 21 Mbps HSPA+ modem.

The whole package runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, and seems to be fairly chubby for Samsung's own tablet standards of late, at 116.4 x 193.4 x 9.7mm, and 310g of weight for the Wi-Fi version. Nothing impressive so far, but the price will likely be a very pleasant surprise when the slate lands next month, if the rumored $130 tag materializes.
