Not that anyone really doubted its legitimacy, but the recent rumor of a Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 Lite being in the pipeline is now just about confirmed, thanks to a Wi-Fi certification, Zauba listing and User Agent Profile expose.
Samsung may not be working solely on toned-down “Mini” and “Lite” versions of current smartphones for next year, but also a low-cost Galaxy Tab 3, according to intel gathered by the usually reliable folks over at Sam Mobile.
Barnes & Noble is not only working on a Tegra 4-powered fresh Nook tablet, but it’s also making ample efforts to turn one of the old slates into the best, cheapest, hottest gadget to buy this holiday season.
Walmart, Best Buy, Target, Verizon, Microsoft, Amazon and Apple are no longer the only retailers with their Black Friday 2013 cards on the table, as Newegg and Fry’s Electronics have also spilled the holiday celebratory beans.
So far focused solely on premium Android slates with extravagant price tags and more recently, tabs based on Windows 8.1, Toshiba has finally come out with a Nexus 7 2013 “killer” wannabe of its own, dubbed simply the Excite 7.

With Windows 8.1 officially official at last and ready to rock and roll on desktops, laptops, tablets and everything in between, it’s finally time to welcome Lenovo’s latest slate effort, dubbed Miix 2.
Describing the ongoing partnership between smartphone and tablet manufacturer Xolo and SoC maker Nvidia as fruitful would probably be the understatement of the century, as a number of Tegra 3 and Tegra 4-powered products branded by Xolo have seen daylight of late.
Archos GamePad 2 goes official: same old design, same price, but faster CPU, more RAM and crisper display
Anyone remember the first-gen Archos GamePad? You know, the 7-inch budget-friendly Android tablet designed with gamers in mind, but heavily criticized by everyone for shoddy build quality, weak gaming support and an overall disappointing set of specs.

It’s been close to three years since Indian-based Notion Ink introduced the Adam tablet to the world (how time flies, eh?), promising about two dozen things more than it ended up delivering.
It’s no easy feat to get from zero to hero in an environment as challenging and competitive as the Indian mobile market and do it all in just four years. But don’t you think for a second Micromax is resting on its laurels just because it’s now the country’s second biggest smartphone vendor, slightly behind
Lenovo kicked off IFA 2013 way ahead of schedule by introducing the world to a heap of new ThinkPad laptops on Tuesday, but you didn’t really think that was it for the OEM and the Berlin expo, did you?

We know that choice is good and the evolution of technology thrives on competition, but isn’t the 7-inch tablet market getting a little too crowded? Case in point, Huawei, whose MediaPad 7 Vogue has gone on sale less than a month ago and yet a rehash is already official.
After making great strides in the smartphone arena over the past year or so, Xiaomi is rumored to be gearing up for a debut in the tablet game. The company’s first tab effort could be called MiPad and see daylight in the fall for a modest starting price of $160.
