Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 Review: Its Best Feature Is The Brand Name

Samsung is the biggest Android OEM on the planet by a wide margin. The South Korean company even manages to outsell Apple in the smartphone market on occasion, and it has all of us to thank for it. It has also traditionally made some of the best Android-based tablets you can buy. The first Nexus 7 from Asus last year showed us what a small, inexpensive tablet could be, and Samsung released a few competent alternatives to compete with it.

Galaxy Tab 3 Pre-Orders Available At Samsung, Amazon, Best Buy, And Other Retailers, Devices Ship July 7

Samsung's third iteration of the Galaxy Tab series of tablets isn't exactly mind-blowing, with each entry rocking specs that rival that of the aging Nexus 7. While we're mildly offended that Samsung would stick a 1280x800 resolution on a 10.1-inch screen, that doesn't mean we're going to stop you from buying one if your heart so desires. The 7-inch, 8-inch, and 10.1-inch versions of Sammy's largely identical slates have all popped up for pre-order online and at several big box retailers.

Samsung Posts Kernel Open Source Code For Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 (SM-T310)

Having been announced just a handful of days ago (on the third), the Galaxy Tab 3 8.0's 7.4mm chassis has just barely rolled out of the factory, but – in keeping with old habits – Samsung has already posted up the open source code for the eight-inch tab's kernel. This, by the way, comes just over two weeks after kernel source code for the Tab 3 7.0 dropped.

Intel Confirms Reuters Report: Atom Z2560 Processor Powers The 10.1-Inch Samsung Galaxy Tab 3

For some reason, Samsung played a bit coy when it announced a pair of new Galaxy Tab 3 models yesterday, and left out the long-rumored Intel chip powering the 10-inch version. This morning Intel let loose with a little PR of its own, finally verifying what Reuters tentatively confirmed: there's Intel inside. The 1.6Ghz dual-core processor powering the Android 4.2 tablet is part of Intel's Clover Trail+ line. With Samsung's massive market presence, the Tab 3 10.1 could easily become the best-selling Intel Android device yet.

Samsung Announces The Galaxy Tab 3 In 8-Inch And 10.1-Inch Flavors, Launching In Early June [Update: Intel CPU For 10.1]

We knew it was coming. After the rather disappointing reveal of the 7-inch Galaxy Tab 3, Samsung unveiled two new models today. The 8-inch Tab 3 bears a striking resemblance to the Galaxy Note 8, while the 10.1-inch version extends the design language first introduced in the Galaxy S III smartphone to the 10.1-inch form factor... buttons and all. Both models are mild refreshes of older Tab variants (though the 8-inch Galaxy Tab 3 could bee seen as a mix of the 8.9 and 7.7).

Samsung Releases Kernel Source Code For Verizon Galaxy S4, Galaxy Tab 3 7.0, Galaxy Mega 5.8 Duos, And Galaxy Mega 6.3 GSM

It's that time again: the software engineers at Samsung are on an open-source bender, and they won't stop until every last Galaxy phone has been served. Today Samsung posted kernel files for some big (as in widely-used) devices, and some not-so-big (but still actually pretty big) devices. Verizon's version of the Galaxy S4, the vanilla Galaxy Tab 3 7.0, the Galaxy Mega 5.8 Duos, and the GSM version of the Galaxy Mega 6.3 all have kernel source code posted at Samsung's open source repository.

Samsung Officially Reveals The 7-Inch Galaxy Tab 3 - Budget-Grade Specs In A Giant Smartphone Body

Those of you who didn't appreciate the divisive smartphone style of the Galaxy Note 8.0 might want to avert your eyes right about now.
