Engadget’s got the meat on this one, the tablet we all knew was coming finally makes an appearance. The Galaxy Note 8.0 features a 1,280 x 800 8 inch display, a quad core Exynos 4 processor clocked at 1.6ghz, 2GB of ram and comes with a 16GB or 16GB storage option.

As you could imagine, this device probably only has one purpose, to attack the iPad Mini much like the Galaxy S series attacked the iPhone. Aside from the boring cutting edge specs, the Note 8.0 has an interesting trick up it’s sleeve, it can make calls. The Note II continues to enjoy success and receive rave reviews by those who own it, even though the screen approaches the “too big to use as  a phone” size, but this my friends, blows that argument out of the water! This is no longer a phatblet, this IS a tablet! However, as per Engadget, Samsung has no interest in bringing the phone enabled model to the US, so we’ll get the LTE version, which is fine by me.

Loaded with Jelly Bean and full S Pen functionality, Samsung is determined to see Apple’s success with the iPad Mini is short lived, if the sales and comparisons with the iPhone, SG3 war is any indication of what is to come, Apple is in for a fight!


  1. hey Ramon did you catch the Oscars last night? By Oscars of course I mean an eight hour Samsung ad about unicorns.. LG ftw, that’s all I’m saying. I mean, I love unicorns as much as the next guy but for Pete’s sake show me some JLo leg, right?

  2. You know what’s whack? How maybe a year ago there was all this flame against Apple and Android folk who were getting dual and quad cores, with your people like that Murani and the other guy going on about how it will waste battery and no apps will be optimize and blah blah HEY DEE BAGS looks like you don’t know after all what the hell you’re talking about with your WPs finally catching up with both ram and processor technology. Look at you punk asses (not necessarily you Ramon, I don’t know where you stand on this topic yet, you’re a chameleon) changing your tune once Microsoft decides it ain’t cool no more having specs from previous decades.
