Samsung debuts third-gen Galaxy phablet

Posted by Trent Nouveau

Samsung has rolled out its third-gen Galaxy Tab, which can best be described as a 7-inch Android phablet available with optional 3G capabilities that can also functions as a phone.

Key specs include a 7-inch display set at a resolution of 1,024 by 600 pixels, a 1.2 GHz processor and 8 or 16 gigabytes of internal storage.

Additions specs? A 3-megapixel rear camera, a front 1.3-megapixel camera and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.

The Galaxy Tab 4 will be hitting the streets in May with the WiFi only model, while the 3G iteration of the Tab is set to go live in June.

Pricing has yet to be announced, but as the folks at AppleInsider note, the above-mentioned specs suggest Samsung plans to undercut the $329 starting price of Apple's iPad mini. A $250 price point is probably somewhat unrealistic to expect, so perhaps $300 or thereabouts is a bit more reasonable.
