It has been rumored long before Samsung made an announcement in this regard, that the manufacturer would announce a new addition to its Note line-up, offering a tablet with a not-so-conventional screen size. Later the rumors spoke about a very powerful hardware configuration, WiFi and LTE variants and a healthy price, making it a device to look forward too.


The latest device in the Samsung Galaxy Note line offers a screen size of 8-inches and every bit the features of the other devices in the same line-up, including new ones. It comes with Android Jelly Bean on-board, customized by Samsung with the latest versions of its S-Pen enabled apps and an improved interface for productivity. The Galaxy Note 8.0 also seems very attractive from a design point of view, even it the screen size is a bit on the unusual side, close on-par to that of the iPad Mini.

Sine some time after the official announcement regarding the Note 8.0, the device was rumored to be available world-wide in the shortest time possible, though it seems that is not the case. Barely now, and after the announcement of the Galaxy S IV has the Note 8.0 again surfaced in terms of availability, this time in Europe. Here a UK Store claims to have the device available, for the sum of £339 (approximately $516). The price is for the WiFi model with 16 GB of internal storage. Further availability news are also expected, with Samsung even willing to provide a voucher with every device sold in selected countries.

    How can this price be considered attractive? Granted Note 8 has excellent specs, but except for a few highly innovations, that are still in the beta stage, it appeals only to a few. If iPad mini 2 comes out with a retina screen, Samsung Note 8 will be buried. Even the Note 10.1 is at
    $450. for a 10.1 screen and has most of the same features and the bigger screen needed to run S Pen apps.
