If 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'.
