Background Information ¶
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 was the first released 8 inch tablet by Samsung. It was preceded by the 7, 7.7, 8.9 and even 10.1 size models.
Highly criticized for its steep price tag, but never for its performance, this tablet made for a strong competitor the the ipad mini series, as well as the Kindle Fire. With successive launches of Samsung Galaxy phones, developing various similar tablets was a direct move into Apple's territory over a previously untapped, and newly discovered market for mobile gadgets.
