galaxytab3liteStarting in the last month of 2013, there were more reports that Samsung was going to be bringing more tablets to the market and for the most part the one that is getting the most attention for obvious reasons is the Galaxy Note Pro 12.2.  Even though attention is on the largest tablet on the market today, that does not mean that Samsung is going to leave the tablet market at that.  In fact, reports that showed up this week are indicating that Samsung is far from getting away from tablets as the company quietly released the Galaxy Tab 3 Lite.

Getting lower cost, entry level tablets to the market is one thing that Samsung said it was going to be doing and after releasing a couple of the highest end devices at the Consumer Electronics Show this year, it was a surprise that the company was going to reach both ends of the spectrum when it comes to features, software and hardware for devices.  The Galaxy Tab 3 Lite is going to fit right in with the rest of the affordable Android powered tablets.

The Galaxy Tab 3 from last year was pretty flat in terms of what it brought to the table and there is not much more to expect from an entry level option with the word “Lite” in the name.  The tablet features a 7-inch 1024×600 touch screen display, comes with a slower dual-core processor clocked at 1.2GHz and just 1GB of RAM.  It might compare to other 7-inch tablets on the market today, but even some of them are coming with quad-core power and 2GB of RAM.  The Galaxy Tab 3 Lite comes with 8GB of internal memory and a microSD card slot for memory expansion which you will most likely need.

The tablet comes with a 3,600mAh battery, but that is only going to bring about 8 hours of daily use and the operating system is just Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, which is quite step behind the Android 4.4 KitKat software of today.  Pricing and exact availability have not been announced just yet, but that should be announced soon as the tablet has been rumored to be coming very soon.  The Lite model comes in black or white and in 3G and Wi-Fi only options as well, for different pricing options as expected.
