Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 price revealed by accident

Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 price revealed by accident
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 has not yet officially been priced, but considering that the 7 inch niche of the Android tablet market is home to low priced slates like the Amazon Kindle Fire and the Google Nexus 7, you would expect that Sammy's newest 7 inch Galaxy Tab model will continue the tradition.

At one point on Monday, New York based retailer Adorama accidentally put up a live web page for the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7.0. The tablet, dressed in white and carrying 8GB of native storage, showed a price of $199.99 which is what you would expect to see for a tablet that features a 7 inch 1024 x 600 display, a dual-core 1.2GHz processor and 1GB of RAM. With 8GB of native storage, the tablet also sports a 3MP camera on back and a 1.3MP snapper on front. A 4000mAh battery powers the device and Android 4.1 is pre-installed.

Adorama has since taken down the page which probably has nothing to do with the accuracy of the information, but has everything to do with not following the embargo date. There is no reason to think that the $199.99 price will be revised.

I wish a OEM would make a High Spec 7in tablet. i think 7in is the perfect size for a tablet. Fits inside a lady's purse or a mans back pocket. i wouldn't recommend SG Tab 3 7.0 when the nexus is still better

I AGREE!! Thats what makes the Nexus7 better. It offers a combination of specs and price that cant be matched right now. I love my Nexus7 and i just might get the next Nexus4 when it comes out

Google!! Please increase apps for your tablets. We need more apps to compete it against iPad.

The specs on this tab are the same or worse than the Nexus 7. Who's gonna buy this?

Screen resolution needs to be at least 720p now a days to be taken seriously. And the fact that the Nexus 7 is the same price, with the new one coming out very soon, there is no reason to consider this.

This is borderline sickening: 2 generations/2 years later, the GT 3 7.0 has essentially the same specifications & hardware at around the same price... I use to genuinely like Samsung products ,however,as of late they seem to be flooding the market with rehashed, overpriced, underpowered products. For those who claim Samsung is catering toward "budget buyers", I'm not buying it for one minute, as there's alternatives in the same class with superior specs, priced similarly, the Nexus 7 being just one example.

I don't think you can compare a Nexus device with what other manufactures offer, for one thing it is subsidized by Google and like the Kindle Fire it is not meant to make a profit on the device but on content use. In other words, Samsung (or any other manufacturer) can't sell their tablet nearly at cost since then what is the point. Look at the iPad, they sell both the content and the device...unless everyone had their own market place to sell content (at least one that people actually used) then we can't expect high specs and low prices.

The Only difference between the Tab 3 and my Tab 2 is a slightly faster processor

Why don't 7-8" tablets feature high resolution display? iPad 4 and Nexus 10 have gorgeous display but the Nexus 7, Kindle Fire, iPad etc all of them have low resolution why is that?

Sony Xperia Z tablet too has excellent display
