Samsung (SSNLF.PK) launches 8" and 10.1" models for its Galaxy Tab 3 to complement the 7" model launched in April. The 10.1" model reportedly sports an Intel Clover Trail+ CPU, but no supplier is named in the PR. Samsung tries to differentiate the 8" model through a "reading mode" display-optimization feature. In spite of tough competition from the iPad (still has a big lead in tablet-specific apps), the Kindle Fire, and the Nexus 7, IDC estimates Samsung's tablet share rose to 17.9% in Q1 from 15.1% in Q4 and 11.3% a year earlier. Shipments are believed to risen nearly 4x Y/Y to 8.8M, aided by the tablet market's torrid growth.
