The iPad Mini has a new competitor to beat, the Galaxy Tab 3

There are many tablets on the market that fight against the Apple iPad and iPad mini. Many of them are far from being real competitors, but some, like the ones Samsung manufactures, could hurt Apple’s dominance in this business.

Samsung just announced a new device. In this case it is a device that will come to market to fight against the iPad mini and it is a new version of a veteran like the Galaxy Tab.

The Galaxy Tab 3 just announced by Samsung, will come to market with a 7-inch screen with 1024×600 px resolution , 1.2 GHz processor and 8 or 16GB storage options with memory card expansion (up to a maximum of 64GB). In addition, it will have a 3-megapixel rear camera and a 1.3-megapixel front camera.

Samsung has put a lot of emphasis on the portability and easy grip possibilities that the device will have, to a certain extent achieved thanks to the reduction of the bezels around the screen, which are thinner than in the previous generation of the tablet and lighter in weight (302 grams or 306 grams depending on the version chosen).

The new Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 will feature 3G connectivity and call capability

In addition, this time there will also be a version with 3G connectivity . In addition to offering the possibility of having an Internet connection at any location, this feature will also allow calls to be made as if it were a smartphone. Unlike Apple’s iPad mini , Samsung’s new tablet will not have LTE connectivity , which is unforgivable in some markets, although a minor detail in others where this technology has not yet been implemented by telephone operators.

In terms of operating system, the Galaxy Tab 3 will arrive with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean , one of the latest versions of Android to appear so far. In this sense, the Apple iPad mini plays with advantage, especially because of the enormous amount of apps that are adapted to the tablet screen and that are only available for iOS.

Appleinisider says that the Galaxy Tab 3 will come to market worldwide from May with WiFi connectivity and that the 3G version will arrive later, sometime in June. Do you think this is a serious competitor for Apple’s iPad Mini or will it be another attempt by the Korean company?
