The resolution doesn't bother me. The screen isn't big enough for it to really matter that much. The main thing is the processor... they didn't say what type of processor cores, just clock speeds and dual core, so it's hard to say exactly how fast or slow it is. But I'd bet it's a fairly low-end chip - so let's hope they price it accordingly.
I swear. Samsung is slowly becoming Apple. They think that because they have an established brand that they can release sub-par products and still get loads of money. These specs are anything but impressive.
"Is this the Somalian version? No quad core? No 1080p? No 4G? No Wi-Fi 802.11ac? Only 1 GB of RAM? Seriously, only a 5 MP camera? 5 MP! What is this, 2007? "
Anything under 10 is useless to me, and at this size 720p is fine. Having said that I'd add to this comment where is usb 3.0. Usb 2.0 means no purchase for me today also. I hate when I hook up an external drive that isn't 3.0. What would it cost to rev this tablet up? $10? For usb3 and a few other upgraded things? USB 3.0 and 802.11AC should at least be in there as they both affect a large audience and just about make the device unusable for me. I can almost forgive the quad but just based on how good the Nexus 10 dual is.
For this to sell it better be under $200 and closer to $170. I don't use a tablet as a camera so again that's useless to me.
1.5 GHz dual-core is terrible at this point. My Nexus 7 is overclocked to 1.6GHz with no problems, and it is quad core, plus it came out almost a year ago. Samsung will probably charge at least $300 too.
In general these small tablets are kind of useless in my opinion. If you want a tablet that small you might as well get a fairly big phone such as the Note 2, HTC One, or even the Nexus 4 or Galaxy S3/S4.
