PRICE : This new tab from Samsung is priced around 17,000 INR . It is now easily available in the market. QUICK REVIEW : Samsung has put their new user interface in this tab and touch of the display is very responsive. It is quiet lighter than their previous Tab 2 model and its very easy to hold in hand. Motion features are missing in this tab but they added two new gallery view from Note II. Pop up video player is added and it works very fine. Dual core processor handles all works very fine, and with 1 GB of RAM you can play hard games in this smoothly. Overall this is a very good tab in mid range with calling facility. What we like : Jelly Bean, SIM card support with voice calling, dual core CPU, Design, light weight What we don’t like : lower pixel density, no motion features, only 3MP rear camera with fixed focus, no S-pen If you want a tab that contains Jelly Bean OS and with SIM support then go grab it.
