First announced only a short time ago, Samsung has now confirmed a U.S. release date for its latest Galaxy Tab 3 devices, with pre-orders kicking off this week.
Samsung today announced a formal release date for the Galaxy Tab 3 in a trio of screen sizes beginning July 7.
The Galaxy Tab 3 series will be available in White or Gold Brown and one of three form factors: A 7-inch model first announced in late April, plus the newer 8-inch and 10.1-inch models announced earlier this month.
The consumer-centric Galaxy Tab 3 lineup will be available from retailers including Amazon, Best Buy, Walmart, Newegg and countless others, as well as direct from Samsung's website.
On the high end, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 is powered by a 1.6GHz dual-core processor and features a modest 1280 x 800 WXGA display priced at $399.
Sandwiched in the middle is the Galaxy Tab 3 8.0, which includes the same resolution as its bigger sibling with a higher pixel density of 189ppi for $299.
Last but not least, the Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 is a minor update to Samsung's entry-level tablet with a 1024 x 600 display resolution, but priced to move at only $199.
Available in U.S. stores three days after Independence Day, all models include a $10 Google Play credit, one year of free Boingo Wi-Fi hotspot service, three months of Hulu Plus and 50GB of free Dropbox cloud storage for the first two years.
