Not too long until the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 tablets land in the U.S., folks! The Korean tech giant just confirmed that all three of them are to launch stateside in just a couple of weeks. Starting July 7, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1-inch, Galaxy Tab 3 8-inch, and the Galaxy Tab 3 7-inch will be available for purchase online or via many of the nation's largest retailers. And if patience is something you don't have lots of, you'll be able to place a pre-order tomorrow – June 25. 

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1-inch is the largest tablet among the bunch, sporting a 1280 by 800 pixel display and a 1.6GHz dual-core Intel processor.
