Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7-inch first hands-on photos
For all the fans of 7" tablets around the world, here comes the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7-inch! A very compact, almost pocketable tablet based on Android Jelly Bean. The latest 7" Galaxy Tab doesn't really bring a lot of new things compared to its predecessor - it's main advantage are its more compact dimensions, which, we guess, is somewhat important to users on the lookout for a small tablet.

The Galaxy Tab 3 7-inch unit that we got is a very early prototype; so early, in fact, that it won't boot up, but fear not, we'll soon be able to present you with a full-fledged hands-on and preview of the device. For now, let us present you these first hands-on images with the Galaxy Tab 3 7-inch, which should give you an idea of the tablet's dimensions.

Samsung made too many phones and tablets with old display and low resolution.

There is no reason for a tablet to have physical/capacitive buttons. NONE!!!

It looks like you'll be able to make phone calls on this one. If the specs are good, and I mean, flagship good, I just might bet his unlocked and use it as a daily driver.

For a 7-inch tablet those physical/capacative keys aren't so bad. But when it goes on 8-inch and so on.....oh sh**, Samsung. Better destroy those designers and hire new ones...just saying.

ewww... the buttons on the right or left side when on landscape! What a trash! I think Samsung lets interns get on a crucial business process!

You add Galaxy Young and you'll find all designs would be same from low to mid to high.
