Simon Stanford, Vice President of IM division, Samsung Electronics UK & Ireland said: "At Samsung we are constantly striving to provide innovative devices that fit people's individual needs.  The new Galaxy Tab 3 certainly offers something for everyone, providing people of all ages with even more ways to view, listen, create and share content from any location at any time."

  • Easy Handgrip for Portability: Its compact, one-hand grip ensures users can hold the device comfortably for hours as well as store in a pocket or small bag for reading on the go. The sleek and stylish design is thinner and lighter than the Galaxy Tab 2 (7.0).
  • Improved Multimedia Performance: Powered by a 1.2GHz Dual Core processor, the device allows for faster downloads and sharing, while providing easy access to videos, apps, games, and the web. Available with either 8/16 GB of internal storage plus up to 64GB of expandable memory, the device has plenty of space to hold photos, music, apps, videos and more.
  • Enhanced User Experience: The Galaxy Tab 3 7-inch is equipped to capture life's moments in stunning clarity and resolution with its 3 MP rear camera and 1.3 MP front camera.  Combined with the latest Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean), it allows users to share photos and videos through a few quick taps and swipes.

The Galaxy Tab 3 7-inch WiFi version will be available globally at the beginning of May and the 3G version will follow in June. The product availability varies by market and will be rolled out gradually.
