First 4G tablet, Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7in, appears online for £259

Online retailer ISME, which is part of the Shopdirect group, sells the 4G version of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 for whopping £259, which is around £80 more than the non-4G version of the same device.

That's roughly the same price as the Google Nexus 7 3G, a much faster and better tablet. That goes to say that the 4G connectivity is being offered at a hefty premium.

The tablet was launched last month during an event in London that also saw the launch of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 and the Tab 3 8in, the former being the first Samsung tablet device to carry an Intel processor.

The Galaxy Tab 3 7in comes with a dual-core system-on-chip clocked at 1.2GHz, 1GB of RAM, 8GB onboard storage with a microSD card slot, a 7in display with a 1,024 x 600 pixel display, a rear 3.2-megapixel camera and a VGA front facing one, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean plus Samsung's own TouchWiz user interface.
