Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 Game Edition incoming, GamePad controller in tow

From the looks of it, Samsung is ready to launch a product bundle tailored with gamers in mind. It is focused around the company's Galaxy Tab 3 8-inch tablet and the GamePad game controller which Samsung unveiled just days ago. You won't be required to attach the tablet to the controller, however – it would be too large to fit anyway. Instead, there will be an HDMI adapted thrown in the set as well, allowing you to hook up the 8-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 to a TV. Three premium games will also be included in the bundle, although what titles have been chosen isn't clear.

Pricing for the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 Game Edition hasn't been specified. Details regarding the bundle's launch date and market availability aren't clear either, but since the retail box above appears destined for Germany, we can safely assume that the Game Edition Tab 3 will be sold in parts of Europe.

I'll be honest, I think this is an excellent idea, just not for Samsung. They don't put enough power into their Tab devices. If this was with the G Pad or Nexus, it would be an excellent addition.

A cool idea, but until yoh see enough hardware under the hood for major title support on mobile, stuff like this won't take off like the prospective manufacturers want it to.

I'm more concerned if there is enough power. Those specs are barely good for phone. Best Gaming tablets are Pro 2 (well, it looks like a tablet), Dell Venue Pro, iPad Air+Mini 2 and Nexus 7.
