Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 3 7″ might undercut Nexus 7 on price

It seems like Samsung is constantly in the rumor mill lately, with the Galaxy S IV coming down the pipe, and the expected tablet refresh for 2013.  Digitimes is reporting Samsung may be pitting their new 7″ inch version of the Galaxy Tab against the Nexus 7 by offering at a sub-$200 price point, possibly as cheap as $149. We haven’t heard too much about specs, but hopefully Samsung won’t have to gimp the device too badly to hit that price point, especially since Samsung is one of the few companies that can produce many of their own parts in-house.

There’s also the rumor that Samsung will be filling in their tablet line with an 8″ model, which would coincide with everything we’ve seen about the 8 inch Galaxy Note, although it could just be an 8 inch tablet alongside the 8 inch Note. Like always, these are just rumors, and nothing’s set in stone until Samsung announces it and releases it. It’s good to see Samsung isn’t letting up on the gas after their incredibly successful year in 2012, though.

    If samsung is going to release the 7 inch Galaxy Tab 3 for the price of $149 than I am sure this device is going to crack the tablet market. People would buy this tab because of samsung’s brand name and future assurance for device updates.
