    Default Tab 3 8.0 some apps not seeing this as a tablet?

    So just picked up the 8.0 version of the tab 3. I already have a GS3 so really liking this.
    BUT ... there are some apps that I used on my Tf101 tablet such as the DirectTV Tablet app - and it says it is not compatible.
    Seems like there are a few other things, it says its not a phone (duh) and it says its not a tablet either???

    Suggestions.

    I think it's because Samsung even treats it like an oversized phone. I have a Tab 2, and I have a phone app. (Facepalm...yeah I want to put that big thing next to my ear, and it doesn't even have a speaker...) I think the only tablet that is treated like a tablet is the 10". But I could be wrong...
