Samsung has announced Monday that it will begin selling the new lineup of Galaxy Tab tablets in the beginning of July. The new Galaxy Tab 3 series comes in a 10.1-inch model, an 8-inch model, and a 7-inch model, in case you’re really picky and specific about your tablet sizes. Prices for all three tablets were announced too, along with an exact launch date.The tablets are priced at a relatively cheap starting point, with the Galaxy Tab 7.0 beginning at $199. The 8-inch model Galaxy Tab 3 is $299, and the 10.1-inch tablet will cost $399. The Galaxy Tab series offers yet another three devices into Samsung’s ballooning portfolio of mobile Android systems, which include their flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S4, with two variants on that model, several mid-tier smartphones, and a Galaxy Note series of tablets. And Samsung’s more PC-styled ATIV tablet series was just announced last week.The 8-inch variant also offers the 1280 x 800p HD resolution, which is important in a smaller tablet, and its 189 pixels per inch is comparable to the iPad mini’s 163 ppi. It will come with the same storage options, as well as WiFi, 3G, or 4G connectivity, same as the 10.1-inch. The 8-inch tablet’s camera is not top-of-its-class, but at 5 megapixels, it actually beats out the 10.1-inch’s 3 megapixel shooter. It’s powered by a 1.5GHz dual core processor, with more ram than its 10.1-inch model, at 1.5GB.
