AT&T has expanded its tablet portfolio with two new additions, the Galaxy Tab 3 from Samsung and the MeMO Pad FHD 10 LTE from Asus. The former device is the 7-inch slate from the series, while the latter falls in the 10-inch segment. Both, however, proffer 4G LTE connectivity and are available for purchase through the carrier.
The Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 is an improved version of its predecessor. It comes in a similar form factor carrying a 7-inch WSVGA touchscreen with 170ppi pixel density. The device is lightweight at 11 ounces and it packs a 1.6GHz dual core Qualcomm processor. The RAM has been increased to 1.5GB and so has the internal memory which is now 16GB instead of 8GB. Additionally, there’s a microSD slot as well. The Android 4.2 platform runs the show tagging along various features from Samsung including WatchON which can be paired with the built-in IR blaster to control a TV set. You’ll also get a 4000mAh Li-ion battery.
The MeMO Pad FHD 10 LTE went official last month. The device operates on Android 4.2 as well, and delivers a 10-inch 1,920 x 1,200p display for high resolution visuals. The tablet is 9.9mm thick and it gains steam from a 1.5GHz quad core S4 Pro SOC. The device features 16GB of storage, a 6760mAh battery, dual cameras (5MP rear and 1.2MP front) and SonicMaster audio technology.
The Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 is priced at $199.99 on contract or $15 per month with the Next program. The carrier is also offering the tablet for $99.99 when bundled with the Galaxy S4, S4 Active or Note 2 smartphones. The MeMO Pad FHD LTE 10 is only available online. It can be picked up for $299.99 with a 2-year agreement, $399.99 with a month to month subscription or $20 a month with AT&T Next.
