Like the idea of an 8 inch Samsung tablet, but don’t want to pay $380 and up

for a model with a digital pen like the Galaxy Note 8.0? No problem. Samsung’s adding an 8 inch model to its cheaper Galaxy Tab lineup.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 (8.0) features an 8 inch, 1280 x 800 pixel display, a 1.5 GHz Samsung Exynos dual-core processor, 1.5GB of RAM, and up to 32GB of storage.

It has a 4450mAh battery, measures 8.3″ x 4.9″ x 0.29″ and weighs 11 ounces.

The tablet runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean software. It also runs Samsung’s custom software including the Samsung Hub music, games, and video apps, Samsung’s S Translator, S Travel, and Dual View apps, and ChatON chat app. It also features the Google Play Store and other Google apps including Google Maps, YouTube, and Google Now.
