The device sports a 7-inch, 1024×600 pixel screen, and a 3-megapixel rear-facing and 2-megapixel front-facing camera (for video chats). It’s powered by a 1.2 GHz dual-core CPU, comes with 1 GB of RAM, and 16 or 32 GB of storage space. It also supports Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 3.0 as well as 3G/HSPA.
However, its biggest claim to fame is probably its size: It’s only 9.96 mm thin and weighs 345 g.
Back when it was first announced — hot on the heels of Amazon’s Kindle Fire announcement — we speculated Samsung might position it close to the Fire’s $199 pricetag.
