The Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 is one of the most anticipated tablets to hit the streets this year. It has the same sort of S-Pen software that has made the phone a hit in the business world. Getting a little bit more screen real estate than your standard 7 inch device is a big selling factor, as well. The Galaxy Note 8.0 now has an official release date in Canada for April 29th, 2013.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 features a 8 inch screen with a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels. It has a 1.6GHz quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, S Pen stylus compatibility, 1.2MP front facing camera, a 5-megapixel rear camera, a 4,600mAh battery, and Jelly Bean (Android 4.1.2). It is poised to be a very solid tablet, despite the $340 price tag.
One of the big hyping factors is that this is one of the few tablets on the market that you can get LTE speed while on the go. Being able to work in a mobile setting is critical for the market Samsung is trying to capture. Primary consumer segments would be disillusioned Blackberry users and the type who do more productivity tasks instead of playing Angry Birds. The extra screen size will also be perfect for graphic novels, comics, ebooks, and digital magazines.
