Per reports, Samsung is set to launch a trio of tablets that will come in all sizes - 7 inches, 8 inches, and 10.1 inches.

"Samsung Electronics reportedly plans to launch 7-, 8- and 10.1-inch tablets as well as a series of ultrabooks in 2013 optimizing on its success gained with sales of smartphones," reported DigiTimes.

One of the three tablets in question, the Galaxy Note 8.0, has already been confirmed by the the head of Samsung Mobile Communications, JK Shin, and will debut at the MWC 2013 in Barcelona this February. The Galaxy Note 8.0 tablet, codenamed KONA, has an 8-inch screen with 1280 x 800 pixels resolution and is expected to challenge Apple's 7.9-inch iPad mini.

Now reports have disclosed the Galaxy Note 8.0 tablet's pricing and it is speculated to cost between $249 to $299. Additionally, per the DigiTimes report, Samsung also has a 7-inch budget-friendly Galaxy Tab 3 tablet in the works, which will be priced in the $149 to $199 range, making it even cheaper than the Google Nexus 7.

Samsung is not only trying to eat into Apple and Google's market share in the smaller tablet space, but will also throw the gauntlet to their bigger tablet offerings. The Korean company, per reports, is also gearing up to launch a new 10.1-inch tablet.

The 7- and 10.1-inch offerings will be launched in the first half of 2013, giving them a head start over Apple, who is expected to launch its iDevices in the second half. The pricing of the 10.1-inch tablet is currently not known.

With the triad of tablets set to conquer the consumer market soon, Samsung looks set to dominate the tablet space in 2013.
