The Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 is an Android tablet with an 8 inch display, support for writing or drawing with a digital pen, and a speedy processor.
It launched recently in the UK for £339, and now the Galaxy Note 8.0 is coming to the States. It goes on sale April 11th for $400.
The tablet features a 1280 x 800 pixel display which supports both finger and pen input. You can use Samsung’s S-Pen apps to scribble notes, draw on top of pictures, or use the pen in other ways.
Samsung also includes an IR port that lets you use the tablet as a remote control.
Under the hood, the Galaxy Note 8.0 is powered by a 1.6 GHz Samsung Exynos 4412 quad-core processor and 2GB of RAM. The US model has 16GB of built-in storage, and there’s a microSD card slot for extra storage if that’s not enough.
On the back of the tablet there’s a 5MP camera which can shoot 1080p video. There’s also a 1.3Mp camera on the front for video chat.
The Galaxy Note 8.0 has a 4600mAh battery.
While the international version of this tablet has an HSPA+ modem and works as a cellular phone, in the US the Galaxy Note 8.0 is a WiFi-only tablet.
Customers will also get 50GB of online storage from Dropbox for free for 2 years, a $25 credit for the Google Play Store (for a limited time), and a month of free music streaming from Samsung Music Hub.
That’s a massive £80 mark-up in price for UK buyers, no thanks!
1280 x 800 @ 8″ = 189 dpi. Not horrible, but not amazing either.
