Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 Released – Not Another Boring Tab
Published on April 30th, 2013
Samsung has officially announced the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3. And honestly it’s not so great, in fact it’s boring and looks like an upgrade of the previous Tab 2. The Galaxy Tab 3 doesn’t feature a SuperAMOLED display, it’s only powered by a dual core processor and will have a 3 megapixel camera. I guess Samsung is trying to make it as affordable as much as possible. If you want some bad-ass tablet, check out the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note III. Anyway, find out more about the Galaxy Tab 3 below.
