Samsung launches three different flavors of its Galaxy Tab 3

Samsung logoSamsung has introduced three different sizes of the Galaxy Tab 3 in the hopes that there's at least one that fits you just right. The company announced today that its US customers will be able to buy a 7-inch tablet for $199, an 8-inch option for $299, or 10.1-inch option for $399.

Samsung writes that the "portfolio" of tablets is supposed to offer consumers "more options," but one could also view the move as the company hedging its bets. With a 7-inch model, for instance, Samsung can compete head-to-head with the ever-popular Asus Nexus 7 while also offering varying sizes for those who might want a larger form factor—or a choice over other similarly sized Android tablets.

Your choice is not limited to screen size, however. The Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 will feature a dual-core 1.2GHz processor, 8GB of storage with expandable memory, a 1024×600 resolution TFT display, and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. The 8-inch variant features slightly better specifications, with an Exynos 1.5GHz dual-core processor with 1.5GB of RAM, a 1280×800 resolution TFT display, and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, as well as a rear-facing 5-megapixel camera and 16GB of storage. The last of the family of new tablets borrows from each of its siblings, sporting the same resolution as the 8-inch Galaxy Tab 3 and the same camera specifications as the 7-inch model. The biggest difference is its Intel Z2560 1.6GHz dual-core processor, though it only has 1GB of RAM.

In an attempt to win you over, Samsung is also packing each device with extras. Each of the Galaxy Tab 3 devices will come with preloaded content and Galaxy Perks, like a $10 voucher for buying apps, books, movies, and music through Google Play; one year of free Boingo hotspot service; three free months of Hulu Plus; and two years of Dropbox with 50GB of storage.

All three Wi-Fi only tablets will be available in white and what Samsung is calling "gold brown" beginning July 7, with preorders for the devices starting tomorrow at participating retailers.
