I wonder how long does it take for a device to include everything, phone, tablet, camera, wallet… Samsung has quietly announced its Android-based Galaxy Note 8.0 tablet, the burning question is, Will Android-based Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 go toe to toe with the iPad mini??
I haven’t tried the Android devices from Samsung, but looks like the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is the Samsung’s big play in the “phablet” market.
Galaxy Note 8.0 is powered by a 1.6GHz quad-core processor and 2GB of RAM, and has a 1280 x 800-resolution WXGA screen and a 5-megapixel camera on the back and a 1.3-megapixel camera on the front.
Samsung says Galaxy Note 8.0 is designed to be used as a personal notebook or diary and that it is the perfect size for you to take anywhere.
