Samsung Galaxy Tab3 Lite pre-orders open now (only in Russia for the moment)
The new tablet is available to pre-order via Svyaznoy, Russia’s second largest mobile retailer. The 8GB Wi-Fi-only model costs $190 (6,490 RUB in local currency), while the 8GB 3G model cots $294 (9,990 RUB). These prices are way higher than what we expected (around $130 for the based model), but we have to take into consideration that most tablets and smartphones are usually a bit more expensive in Russia than in other markets. For comparison, the 2013 Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 8GB Wi-Fi is sold in Russia for around $235, although it can be purchased for as low as $140 in the US. So the new Tab3 Lite may be cheap after all when it hits shelves around the world.
Running Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, the Galaxy Tab3 Lite features a 7-inch display with 600 x 1024 pixels (170 ppi density), Bluetooth 4.0, a dual-core Marvell PXA986 processor clocked at 1.2GHz, 2MP rear camera, 1GB of RAM, MicroSD card support, and a 3,600 mAh battery.
