Samsung's Galaxy Tab 3 Lite doesn't bring much to the crowded budget tablet market

Samsung's regional Polish site inadvertently jumped the gun a few days ago, publishing a user manual for an unannounced Galaxy Tab 3 Lite to its support pages. Today, the Korean company's press blog has finally caught up and formally introduced its new low-end, 7-inch slate. The standard 7-inch Galaxy Tab 3 doesn't exactly boast market-leading specs, but this Lite variant is diminished in several areas nonetheless, making some cheap tablets look like flagships. We're looking at a 1,024 x 600 resolution panel, 1.2GHz dual-core CPU, 1GB of RAM, eight gigs of expandable storage, 3,600mAh battery and a lone 2-megapixel camera. It appears both WiFi-only and 3G editions of the black or white tablet, which runs Android 4.2, will be available come launch, whenever that may be. We're no clearer on pricing, either, but if Samsung hopes to sell these things en masse, anything but seriously cheap is going to put a stop to those plans.
