Samsung Unveils Complete Galaxy Tab Range

Samsung has just recently unveiled the complete Galaxy Tab range for this year with two new models. One being an 8 inch tablet and another one a 10.1 inch tablet.

The first time Samsung took a dip into the tablet market, it was with a 7 inch galaxy tab. The tablet ran Android 2.2 (Froyo). The operating system just wasn't good enough at the time, but Google has since unveiled more advanced operating systems for tablets such as Honeycomb and later on Jellybean.

The third generation family of Galaxy Tab devices started with a 7 inch tablet which was confirmed about 2 months ago in April. The design of the device is very close to the design of the Galaxy Note 8 and very close to the design of the GS3 and the GS4. This provides for a consistent look across the whole Galaxy range and this is coupled with the fact that the devices will be using the TouchWiz user interface. 

Software is up to par

Between the two models themselves, both devices are running Android 4.2 Jellybean. We also find a large amount of the features that were present in other recent Galaxy devices such as GroupPlay, ChatON, Popup Video, Dual View and WatchON. On the actual devices there is a menu button, a back button and a home button just like the other Galaxy smartphones.

10-inch Galaxy Tab 3

The 10 Inch tablet will have a TFT display, and a resolution of 1280x800. The pixel density is 149 which is slightly disappointing. The processor is a dual core 1.6Ghz based on 1 GB RAM and 16 or 32 GB of internal storage space although the actual capacity available to the user will be less. The back camera is a 3 megapixel type and on the front it is a 1.3 megapixel camera.

Users will be able to choose between a 16GB version and a 32 GB version. The back camera is a 5 megapixel camera and the front one is the same with this device as the 10 inch tablet at 1.3 megapixels.

    Disappointing to say the least, especially when compared to the new Asus range announced yesterday. Samsung produces very cutting edge phones but their tablets always seem a generation behind everyone elses
