    I know: that's a bait-y headline that begs for qualifiers, and we'll get to those in just a second. Before that, though, I'd like to apologize to those who've been waiting for our full review of the Galaxy Tab 3 8.0. For those of you who've gotten lost in the avalanche of news since we took delivery on our own Tab 3 8.0 review unit, we unboxed the device a few weeks back - and then we immediately put it up against its closest Samsung-branded competitor, the Galaxy Note 8.0. We promised a review on the heels of that comparison, but then something significant happened: a Nokia Lumia 1020 ...

    Let's put this out there right away: this is not a review. Our full review of the Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 will be coming next week, after we've spent the requisite week or so with the device, so watch out for that. It's also not a hit piece. For all the limitations I'm about to call out, I have no desire to see it fall victim to a hatchet job. There are things about the Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 I quite enjoy. But I also don't know where it fits in the lineup, in the landscape - or I guess, in the world. In other words: I don't know why it exists. And judging from the tone of reader comments thus far, I ...

    Never let it be said that Multimedia Manager Jaime Rivera isn't a trouper. In the hot Honduras heat, with no power and no A/C (and, incidentally, no shirt), he still manages to show up on-time to the Pocketnow Weekly podcast. That right there is some broadcast heroism, folks. No matter what Taylor Martin's new-office excuses are. But that's not what we're here to talk about. No, we're about a week overdue for an audio-only examination of Nokia's newest flagship, the Lumia 1020: we'll cover it's high, low, and so-so points, and debate just how much action a phone has to bring to be worth ...

    Two tablets walk into a bar. One of them bears an impossibly long and convoluted name despite its slim dimensions, and the other packs quite a bit of girth alongside its useful S Pen stylus. With an $80 gulf between them, the question facing the patrons of this imaginary, tablet-serving watering hole isn't an easy one. That question is this: which one do I try to take home with me? For the answer, check out our most numerically intense comparison ever, Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 vs Galaxy Note 8.0 (or "battle of the Samsung slabs," if you've never been one for numbers). We stack the Tab 3 against ...

    We can't all be like Taylor Martin, living it up with a 10-inch Galaxy Tab 3. Some of us need to hang out closer to the midrange, walking the line between the teensy tablets of the world and their supersized siblings. And you know what? That's fine with me. Join me as I take the wraps off the Galaxy Tab 3 8.0, the device smack-dab in the middle of Samsung's new generation of Android tablets. These aren't high-end Galaxy Note devices (though a Note 8.0 does make a cameo in the video) but rather lifestyle-oriented tablets offering "more choice and consumer experiences." What does that mean? ...

    The Galaxy Tab 3 lineup is nothing new. Samsung announced the Tab 3 7.0 all the way back in April, and followed that up with news of the Tab 3 8.0 and 10.1 three weeks ago. So, while the cat may be out of the bag concerning any hardware details, Samsung had yet to confirm details about just when we'd be able to get our hands on these tablets, and for how much. It helps us out with those today, sharing news that the three Galaxy Tab 3 models will go up for sale in the US on July 7. Just to refresh your memory a little, the Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 is powered by a dual-core 1.2GHz Marvell SoC, and ...

    Last month, Samsung announced the first Galaxy Tab 3 model, a seven-inch tablet. Obviously, more Tab 3 options would follow, and at the time we heard rumors about a few other hardware configurations. One of those included an eight-inch model with some nice specs like an AMOLED screen. As we wait for official word, some new specs have leaked for the Galaxy Tab 3 8.0, along with a possible render. Bad news first: this falls way short of those rumored specs. That means a regular old LCD screen (1280 x 800) and instead of a quad-core SoC, only a dual-core 1.5GHz component – no word on if ...

    The past several months have been rife with rumors about new Galaxy Tab hardware from Samsung, but have seemed a little uncertain with regard to the details. We've heard names like the Galaxy Tab 3 Plus thrown around, and checked out a render of uncertain origin. We're still trying to lock-down just what to expect from Samsung here, and now some new rumors arrive describing what we might see from both an 8-inch, as well as a 10.1-inch Galaxy Tab 3. With the growing popularity of the Note series in tablet sizes, we've wondered what that would spell for the no-stylus Tab models. If the ...

    There is little Samsung can do to surprise us with its Galaxy Note 8.0, confirmed to be present at MWC in Barcelona next month, and the star of recent leaks that not only speculate on the internals but seem to have all but confirmed the looks of the upcoming slate. Apparently Samsung has an entire Galaxy Tab 3 family of products in its pipeline; its future is very much related and depending on how well the Galaxy Note 8.0 will be received on the market. According to reports, there's a Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8.0, and a 10.1 in the works with the latter reportedly packing LTE capability. The ...
