The Wi-Fi version of the Galaxy Tab 3 Lite 7.0 sales for RUB6,990 (approximately $205), while the 3G model comes at RUB9,900 ($295). The latter is $20 more expensive than what the slate costs in Poland, but Russia has always been notorious for having the tech a bit more pricey than other places in Europe.
The Galaxy Tab 3 Lite 7.0 has a 7″ screen of WSVGA resolution (1,024 x 600 pixels) and a dual-core 1.2GHz processor with 1GB RAM. The tablet runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, has 8GB of storage and a microSD card. It’s not exactly giving the second-generation Google Nexus 7 a run for its money in terms of specs, but it’s an interesting offer for everyone that wants a small tablet at an affordable price.
Huawei is also competing in the affordable tablet segment with the MediaPad 7 Youth2. Its pricing and availability are yet to be detailed, but it’s definitely gearing up to be an interesting race for the low-end tablet throne.
