Samsung introduces a budget 10 inch tablet, the Galaxy Tab 3 (10.1)

Samsung’s newest 10 inch tablet probably isn’t going to blow you away with its specs. It features mediocre cameras and a screen you would have expected to find on an Android tablet in 2011.

But while Samsung hasn’t announced how much the new Galaxy Tab 3 (10.1) will cost, I suspect you’ll be able to pick one up for far less than the price of a $499 Apple iPad.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 (10.1)

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 (10.1) features a 10.1 inch, 1280 x 800 pixel display, 802.11a/b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, a 3MP rear camera, and a 1.3MP front-facing camera.

It’ll be available with 16GB to 32GB of storage, and there’s a microSD card slot if you need extra storage space.

The tablet has 1GB of RAM, and a 1.6 GHz dual core processor. Samsung’s press release doesn’t say which dual core processor the tablet will have, but Reuters reports that it’s an Intel chip, which makes the Galaxy Tab 3 (10.1) the first Android tablet from Samsung to feature an Intel processor.

Update: Yup, it’s an Intel Atom Z2560 Clover Trail+ processor.
