New Samsung tablets mimic Galaxy phones.
The “Tab” line is Samsung’s value brand, undercutting the price of similar Apple models. Samsung’s premium tablets are in the “Note” line, which include styluses. The 7-inch and 10-inch tablets had “Tab 2” equivalents, but the 8-inch model is new, and coincides closely in size with Apple’s iPad Mini, which came out late last year.

The new tablets have the same three buttons on the front as the Galaxy smartphones. Last year’s Tab 2 had no physical buttons on the front, as encouraged by Google, which supplies the Android software.

The 7-inch Galaxy Tab 3 has 8 gigabytes of storage memory, while the larger models have 16 gigabytes. All of them have card slots for memory expansion.

Samsung and Apple are in a heated tussle when it comes to smartphones and tablets. Each company would like to dominate both markets. Samsung had 18 per cent of the global tablet market in the first quarter this year, according to research firm IDC. Apple had 40 per cent. In smartphones, the figures are reversed, with Samsung dominating, largely because of its Galaxy line. Apple came in second with a 17 per cent market share for the iPhone. In the U.S., however, Samsung is outsold by Amazon.com Inc., with its Kindles.
