Galaxy Tab 3 Range Is Absurdly Affordable In Australia

Samsung debuted the Galaxy Tab 3 range in Australia this morning, and good-Lord are they affordable.

Previously, the Tab range had been pitched at a premium-price point in the Australian market, but Samsung is now trying to get in to the market with a low-cost, high-quality set of products.

There are three Galaxy Tab 3's in the new range: all at differing sizes and price points.

The Galaxy Tab 3 7-inch is the smallest and most affordable in the range, with a dual-core 1.2GHz processor, 1GB of RAM and either 8GB of storage (with 32GB of expandable memory), all powered by a 4000mAh battery. The 7-inch model comes in at $249.

The 8-inch model is the middle of the range at $349 and packs a dual-core 1.5GHz processor, 1.5GB of RAM, either 16GB of storage (with 64GB of expandable memory), all powered by a 4450mAh battery.

The largest model in the Tab 3 range comes in at $399, saddled with a new dual-core 1.6GHz Intel Atom processor 1GB of RAM, either 16GB of storage (with 64GB of expandable memory) and a massive 6800mAh battery.

Each of the new Tabs also comes with a 2-year Samsung warranty.

The new Tab 3 range goes on sale from late-July.

Stay tuned for the first impressions of the Galaxy Tab 3 later on.

    What size is the largest model??

      10.1 inch

        Care to update the article? How about the bit in that section that says: ...either 16GB of storage (with 64GB of expandable memory) and a...

        Please try to proof read.

    Sure.. Since when is "low cost, high quality" NOT a thing, right?

      Nexus 4?

    You can get a Galaxy Note 8 with a quad-core 1.6, 2GB of RAM and S-Pen for about $380 if you shop around...

      You don't even really have to shop around that hard. Dick Smith put it on sale today for $379. I'm a little sad because I paid full price for mine 10 days ago :( Great tablet though!

        Damn, that's tempting. I'm in the market for a mid-size tablet and was interested to see what the Ipad mini 2 was going to bring.. now that its delayed.. hmmm decisions decisions

        This is why credit card price protection exists. Use it!

      yeah i picked up one from harvey norman for $390 around 3 weeks after release, and it is a great tablet

    I don't understand why they've released a 7" tab that's basically the equivalent of the Nexus 7 (1.2GHz dual core vs 1.2GHz quad core Tegra 3, same RAM, same screen size and res), which itself is outdated and about to be refreshed.

      Yeah - are we looking at the same model? The 7" Galaxy Tab 3 SM-T210? Because that's slower, lower resolution, less support and half the storage of the same-priced Nexus 7.

      And when you can often find an N7 with 4x the storage on special for $50 less, that rear camera and microSD slot would have to be crucial features to bother buying one.

    So the 8-inch has more RAM than the 10.1-inch model?

    Each of the new Tabs also comes with a 2-year Samsung warranty

    Which you'd probably get under the consumer guarantee anyway.

    Look forward to hearing your thoughts on them, Luke.

    The Galaxy tab3s are very low end compared to other offerings from Samsung itself and competitors for this current generation AND the previous one of these sorts of devices. I would not recommend them.
