Samsung reveals the Galaxy Tab 3 7-inch tabletSamsung today has taken the covers off of its new 7-inch tablet offering, the Galaxy Tab 3.

The tablet features a slim form-factor that the company hopes will position it to compete with tablets from Amazon, Apple, and Google.

Samsung is touting the size of the tablet, and the fact that it can be held with one hand. The Galaxy Tab 3 has a thinner bezel than the previous Galaxy Tab 2 offering.

It is powered by a 1.2GHz Dual Core processor, and comes available with either 8GB or 16GB of internal storage, and can expand with up to 64GB of memory. It is running Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) as the OS. It features two cameras on board, the rear-facing camera is 3-megapixels, and the front-facing one is 1.3 -megapixels.

The Galaxy Tab 3 will come in both Wi-Fi and 3G flavors. The Wi-Fi version will be available worldwide beginning next month, and the Wi-Fi with 3G version will be introduced in June. Availability depends on local markets.

Pricing information for the Galaxy Tab 3 has yet to be released.
