7-inch tablets are so yesterday. Well, that’s not really true. Samsung has added another size of tablet in their growing lineup. The Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 is available in-stores and online today. Our review will be up shortly, but a refresher of specs of this Android OS 4.1.2 Jelly Bean Wi-Fi-only tablet has an 8-inch display (1280×800 resolution), features the S Pen stylus, 1.6 GHz Exynos quad-core processor, 2GB RAM, 5MP camera with a 1.3MP front-facing camera, 4,600mAh battery, 16 GB Internal Storage (can hold up to 64GB with a microSD card).

The Note 8 is priced at $430 and available at various big box stores across Canada, including Best Buy, Future Shop and Staples, but their websites note that there’s “Limited Quantity Available.”

    As much as i love Samsung products, why do they make them look exactly a like? S3 came out with that design & not the Note 2 has it, S4 has it & Note 8.0 has it. Can they not be original & change it up a bit? Are they trying to be like apple & keep the same boring design?

      I understand that BUT it kinda gets boring seeing the same design on the phone & tablet. Are they going to use this design on their laptops too? change it up a bit & make the tablets have a different design to what the phones have.

    That really sucks. Price point is way out of line by at least $100. I was going to get one, but not at this price. Outrageous.

    you can get the note 10.1 for $450 @ futureshop/bestbuy when it goes on sale which happens atleast once a month. Priced way to high. I’ll pass.

    The note 8.0 uses a micro USB to charge. I don’t see the need for an HDMI Output given how the device is used everyday. It would be nice for the device to be cheaper (you could say that about anything) but, given my 2 days experience with it, I am not regretting the extra cash I spent. The value added features justify the cost.
