Good question Zoltán! I haven't had a chance to play with a Tab 3 yet, but I've heard stories that the device doesn't actually support multiple-users on 4.2 Jelly Bean? However, Android 4.3 will be announced in a few hours and Samsung are much better at rolling out the updates to their users than many other manufacturers, so you might not be stuck for long. Let's just hope the multi-user function is in 4.3! Anyone else got a Tab 3 10.1'' and know if multi-user is enabled or not in 4.2?

My new 10” Tab 3 should arrive at my doorstep tomorrow. I’d like to find a charging dock for it. My Tab is white, I’d like to have a white cradle. Has anyone seen any cradles / docks in white that will hold the 10” tab?

Just taken delivery of my tab 3.8 in place of a Nexus 7 that was such a let down. I have however just one question, my Nexus was able to download programmes from BBC iplayer and then play them from the hard drive. The tab3 does not appear on the update list shown by the BBC Iplayer app and wondered it you know if this update is likely. Otherwise this litte tab is a great little device..

Hey @Gary, I checked the Beeb's iPlayer page and you're right - the Tab 3 isn't on the list, but I found this below the list of supported devices, so it looks good:

If your device isn't on the list, but moderately new, popular in the UK and runs ICS or above, there's a strong chance that support for the downloads feature will be added over the coming months. We'll add newly supported devices to the list.
