Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 Plus gets Bluetooth certification, might have LTE

0. phoneArena posted on 07 Mar 2013, 02:58

One of the tablets that Samsung is rumored to be working on is the GT-P8200, also referred to as the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 Plus. Allegedly, it will come with a 10-inch, 2560 by 1600 pixel display – the very same one found on the Google Nexus 10, and a dual-core Samsung Exynos 5 SoC running at 1.7GHz, meaning that we're most likely dealing with a premium quality product. Little more is known about the device at this time, yet another piece of the puzzle just surfaced out of the Bluetooth SIG database...

This sounds awesome! Finally! A tablet that is going to destroy the iPad, because the Nexus 10 took a while to release, and isnt in all countries yet either .. :P

Even though my nexus 10 has similar specs I think I might sell it and get the galaxy tab 3 when it comes out. I'm gonna wait and see what the final specs are.

A tablet like this might be 500+ if you're willing to drop the cash. The Nexus 10 had a subsidized cost.

From the sound of it, it'll probably have near-same specs except maaaybe an SD card slot and a better GPU to handle all those pixels. Unless the onboard storage is critically important to you I'd say sticking with the Nexus 10 should do you just fine. Unless you have the old Nexus 10. I've heard it gets a little choppy because the GPU wasn't up to snuff.

I bought the 32gb model in january. My issue though is sometimes it lags and forces closes apps for no reason. I bought the nexus 10 because of the screen and I thought it would truly be a great tablet in terms of performance. It is a great tablet and the screen is great but its not all that I thought it would be. Its not consistent. Sometimes it operates extremely smooth but then it lags with transition effects and other things.

It could be mine then. Maybe I downloaded a bad app or something. When I first got it it was silky smooth. As of recent its been lagging a little. Now that I think of it it started acting up after the 4.2.2 update a few weeks ago.

Tab 1, 2, 3. They are a joke..Lucky for me on Black Friday Verizon had them for $99.00 bucks, so I picked up one. Couldn't go wrong with a $99 price tag. The tab 2 is slow, horrible camera, stuck on ICS, states 8 gb internal, but when Google gets finished with installing Google+, and it's parade of pre installed apps, the tab 2 only has 4 gigs of available storage. So guess what--you download a Race Game and you are full--nowhere else to go for storage and being on ICS, you can't move the apps to SD. Samsung needs to stay on phones because that's the only market they are making progress

I disagree with your statement where you say they aren't making progress with tablets. That's not true. Sure the galaxy tab 2 wasn't a great tablet (I had it myself for a short time myself) but it wasn't built to be a premium high performing tablet. It was built to be affordable. Because of that it lacked a lot of things like a fast processor, good camera, etc. The galaxy tab 3 will be much better.
