Samsung announces Galaxy Tab 3

In a statement published by the electronics firm yesterday (April 29th), it revealed the seven-inch device will boast a sleek design and enhanced capabilities to deliver an improved user experience.

As well as coming with either 8GB or 16GB of storage – which is expandable to 64GB using the microSD slot – the gadget also has a three-megapixel rear camera, a 1.3-megapixel front camera and a 1,024 by 600 resolution display.

Thanks to the tablet’s 1.2GHz dual-core processor, consumers will benefit from faster browsing, speedier downloads and sharing, while they will further receive easy access to apps, games and videos.

While the Wi-Fi version of the device will be available in the coming weeks, consumers will need to wait until June for the 3G edition.

It is likely the model will be in demand, especially as recent figures from ABI Research suggested tablet sales could rise 38 per cent this year and surpass $64 billion (£41.7 billion).
