Samsung Releases Galaxy Tab 3 Date, Pricing


With the tablet market on the rise and PC market on the decline -- research firm Gartner projects PC and tablet shipments will be neck-and-neck by 2014 -- Samsung's Hutton was happy to report the Korean tech giant has not seen the same trends in its sales.

"I can't release the numbers, but I can tell you I have a big smile on my face," Hutton said. "We're seeing growth in our PC business at the same time we are seeing growth with the tablets."

Hutton said Samsung's Windows-based products are doing very well and can be loaded with a number of great solutions to make the device even more value-packed.

Measuring in at 7, 8 and 10.1 inches and priced at $199, $299 and $399, respectively, the devices will be available on shelves beginning July 7 but can be pre-ordered immediately. The 7-inch device will run Android 4.1 and have a 1.2GHz a dual-core processor and 8 GB of on-board storage with a microSD card slot. A step up, the 8-inch device will run Android 4.2 and have a 1.5GHz dual-core processor with 16 GB or 32 GB of on-board storage and a microSD card slot. The 10.1-inch device will be the first Android tablet to run on an Intel processor in the United States; it also runs on Android 4.2 and has 16 GB or 32 GB of on-board storage and a microSD card slot.
