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.”
