Samsung’s new 8-inch Android tablet with a digital pen is now available in the UK for £339, or a little over $500 US. And when I say the UK, I mean the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 will be available in Samsung’s flagship store in London. It should be more widely available soon.
The Galaxy Note 8.0 features a 1.6 GHz Samsung Exynos 4 quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, and up to 32GB of storage, plus a microSD card slot if that’s not enough storage for you.
It has a 1280 x 800 pixel display, a 4600mAh battery, a 1.3MP front-facing camera, and a 5MP rear camera. There’s also an IR port for folks that want to use the tablet as a TV remote control.
Like other members of the Galaxy Note family, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 also works with a digital pen, allowing you to write or draw on the screen with pressure-sensitive input. While many Android apps aren’t really designed for that kind of scribbling, Samsung offers a suite of note-taking and drawing apps under the S-Pen name.
The tablet runs Android 4.1.2, and for a limited time starting April 15th, UK customers will also get a few bonus features including a £20 voucher to spend in the Samsung Learning Hub, a two-month free trial to The Times newspaper, and a month of free access to the Samsung Music Hub.
