Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7in tablet goes on sale for £180

The second of the trio of Galaxy Tab devices has reached the UK market and carries a rather expensive price tag. The third iteration of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7in, known as the Tab 3 or the SM-T2100ZWABTU, has been put on sale by online retailer Dabs for £180.

There's not much to distinguish the current model from the previous one. There's still a dual-core Cortex-A9 system-on-chip (one clocked at 1.2GHz), 1GB of RAM, 8GB onboard storage, a microSD card slot, a 7in display with a 1,024 x 600 pixel display, a rear 3.2-megapixel camera and a front-facing 1.3-megapixel one, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean with Touchwiz UI, a 4,000mAh battery (that can power the tablet for up to eight hours), Wi-Fi, DLNA and a weight of just over 300g.

Given that a refurbished version of the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 can be had for under £99, we fail to see the benefit of choosing the third version of the Galaxy Tab over the previous generation model.
