As was expected, Samsung has announced its contender in the entry level budget tablet segment in the form of the Galaxy Tab Lite. The tablet features decent specs which suits its intended price range. This includes a 1.2 Ghz dual core chip, 1 GB of RAM, and 8 GB of storage all packed beneath a 1024 X 600 pixel 7 inch display. There is a 2 megapixel rear camera (none at the front) as well as is a micro SD card slot. The tablet will be powered by a 3,600mAh battery which Samsung claims will be good enough for eight hours of video playback, and will be available in both 3G as well as Wi-Fi only versions.
Samsung has held back on the most crucial aspect of the tablet: it’s intended pricing. This could be vital following some recent tablet launches such as the Acer Tab 7, which sports similar specs and has been priced around $100.
