The Galaxy Note 8.0 is heralded as Samsung’s next move in the tablet space, though that does not mean the oldies (the original Galaxy Tab range) have been shoved to cold storage. Instead, the 10.1 inch Galaxy Tab 3 as well as the Galaxy Tab 3 Plus are both alive and well. In fact, the Galaxy Tab 3 Plus in its 4G LTE avatar has already made it to Bluetooth SIG, where it is known by the model number GT- P8220. The Bluetooth Special Interest Group also mentions the Galaxy Tab 3 Plus is meant for release in the European market, though the tablet will undoubtedly be made available in other regions of the world soon thereafter.
Meanwhile, while details about the tablet duo are scarce at the moment, we rely a lot on rumors. With that, what we know of the device is that the 10.1 inch Galaxy Tab 3 will offer a range topping 2560 x 1600 pixels. This will put the tablet in the same league as the Google Nexus 10. Android Jelly Bean as the operating system is a given, as is perhaps a quad core processor.
More details are awaited. Pity the two tablets didn’t get to show up during the just concluded MWC event.
