Samsung now owns two 20.3-cm (8-inch) display tablets under its umbrella and both of these are targeted at a completely difference consumers base. Earlier this year, the Korean electronics brand introduced its Apple iPad Mini rival, Galaxy Note 8.0 (510) in India. And it was the first time that the company looked at a tablet form factor beyond the small 17.7-cm (7-inch) and the large 25.6-cm (10.1-inch).
But now, the company has launched its Galaxy Tab 3 tablet in the 17.7-cm (7-inch), 20.3-cm (8-inch) and 25.6-cm (10.1-inch) segment. The tablets, Note 510 and Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 may be of the same size but when it comes to hardware and pricing, one can expect them to quite different.
So how does Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 stand in front of the Galaxy Note 510? Let’s find out:
|Brand||Galaxy Note 510||Galaxy Tab 3 8.0|
|Display||20.3-cm (8-inch) HD, 189ppi||20.3-cm (8-inch) TFT, 189 ppi|
