Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 arrives at T-Mobile
Last week, we showed you a screenshot allegedly revealing T-Mobile's internal inventory system. And the screen grab indicated that the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 was coming to the carrier. While the slate is already available from AT&T and Sprint, why should T-Mobile customers be shut out from buying the tablet?

We are happy to pass along a picture showing the box for the tablet inside a T-Mobile store. And the box, like the actual slab, is branded with the T-Mobile logo making the snapshot apparently bonafide. In addition, the tablet is now available from the T-Mobile website, priced at $0 down and $13 a month. If you feel like paying for the whole tablet now, that will cost you $312.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 is equipped with a 7 inch screen (natch!) with a resolution of 1024 x 600. That works out to a 169ppi pixel density, so it's not your sharpest looking screen. A dual-core 1.7GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 CPU is under the hood with the Adreno 305 GPU handling the graphics. 1.5GB of RAM is on board and the 16GB of native storage can be increased using the 64GB capacity microSD slot. The snappers on back and in front weigh in at 3MP and 1.3MP respectively, and the whole shebang is powered by a 4000mAh battery. Pre-installed on the tablet is Android 4.2.2.

Don't forget, tablet owners get 200MB of data for free each month from T-Mobile, so you might want to keep that in mind when deciding where to purchase this model.

Otherwise decent, though that resolution doesn't belong to that price and this year.

A 169 PPI screen? That's about $1.00 per PPI.

Granted, I understand not everyone needs the fastest CPU/GPU or a FHD display, but the fact carriers are charging anything for this device to begin with is damn near criminal.

Sprint charges 50$ in exchnage for a 2 year contrac, and plans start at 5$/mo. That package will have you pay just slightly more than the device costs for a wifi only model at it's normal retail of 179.99, and it is LTE equipped too.

I agree too here, 312 for this type of tablet is not what I expected. 200? sure but not 300. Especially when comparable windows tab is priced at 300 you can get this, Asus VivoTab Note 8. Sure it doesn't come with LTE, but when you can tether it is not really a big deal imo.

why this? why not the sony xperia ultra z? unlimited data on the ultra z, which is half an inch smaller than the tab 3 7.0 which must be tied to a data tier..well, i'll just have to wait for tmobiles next phablet that is bigger than 6+ inches.
