DigiTimes: Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 Lite priced $129

DigiTimes: Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 Lite priced 9If the rumours are on the money, it sounds like Samsung has the high end of the 2014 tablet market well and truly covered, with no less than four face-punching tablets being made official this very day.

In keeping with its frankly astounding prolificness, Samsung obviously still has a keen finger dipped in low-end pie, and again we’re hearing that Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 Lite price is very much dialed down to Super Wallet-Friendly.

Er, not exactly new news here; DigiTimes essentially reiterates earlier reports that the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 Lite will likely cost $129 in a bid to “attract consumers”. Thanks, as always, goes to “sources from the upstream supply chain”. Who else?

Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 Lite specs are tipped to include a 7in display (1024 x 600), 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of “storage” (presumably that’s RAM), a 3MP rear camera, and Jelly Bean Android 4.2.

Uhm, correct me if I’m wrong here, but isn’t that spec sheet almost identical to that of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7.0, which regularly sells for less than £100?

And those specs are hardly anything worth writing home about, though less educated consumers (*mounts high horse*) will likely be seduced by the Samsung name.

Shame really, as you can grab a quad-core Google Nexus 7 2012 with KitKat Android 4.4 compatibility for £99 from Carphone Warehouse. Just sayin'.

Though the Nexus doesn't have sd slot, and is larger and heavier and doesn't have tv out. Has just the one camera

I'd still get the nexus but for some the other option kind of makes sense

But yeah hard to see those as much of a change from the current one.
