Announced globally overnight, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8-inch and the Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 are two new low-end Android tablets. Both are expected to be priced competitively.

The two new products follow the announcement of the Galaxy Tab 7.0 earlier this year and means Samsung has 7in, 8in and 10.1in Android tablets in the low-end Galaxy Tab range.

Following the global announcement, Samsung Australia confirmed to GoodGearGuide that it plans to release the Galaxy Tab 3 range Down Under "later this year."

"Samsung Electronics Australia can confirm that the Galaxy Tab 3 range will be launching in Australia later this year. We will share more information around the availability of this exciting new range in the coming weeks.”

The Galaxy Tab 3 8-inch and Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 tablets both use dual-core processors and will support LTE networks. They will work on Australian 1800MHz 4G networks used by Telstra, Optus and in the near future, Vodafone.

Samsung also confirmed there will be Wi-Fi only models available for both devices.

The Galaxy Tab 3 8-inch has 1280x800 screen, a 5-megapixel rear camera and a 1.3-megapixel front camera. It will come with either 16GB or 32GB of internal memory and has a 1.5GHz dual-core processor.

Both models feature a microSD card slot for memory expansion and run the latest version of Google's Android operating system, Jelly Bean 4.2.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Windows 10 / HP Spectre

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
