AT&T may be focused on Galaxy Note 3 pre-orders at the moment, but it still has something for those who want a new Samsung gadget right away. The company has quietly launched its expected LTE version of the Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 at prices of $300 off-contract, $200 with a two-year agreement and $20 per month on AT&T Next. It's also available for as little as $100 if you buy one on contract at the same time as a Galaxy S 4, Galaxy S 4 Active or Galaxy Note II. While the tablet is mostly unchanged from the WiFi version, it does have a treat inside -- there's now a 1.6GHz Snapdragon 400 processor under the hood instead of the usual 1.2GHz chip. If that's enough to lure you in, you can order the 7-inch slate today at the source link.
