Samsung Note series phones have been taken pretty well by users, and now the company announces the release of its new tablet or you can call it is phablet Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 in the USA on the 11th of April. The tablet is 8 inches of easy note-making, now with digital ink support. The product is set to compete with Apples iPad mini and includes Samsung’s digital S-Pen.
Product specifications are the same as announced earlier in the year with 8-inch LCD with 1280 x 800 resolution, 5-megapixel rear camera, 1.3-megapixel front camera, 2 GB of memory, 16 GB of storage (up to 64 GB microSD expansion supported), Android 4.1.2 with Samsung TouchWiz, A 1.6 GHz quad-core processor. This tablet is basically a super large size of the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 Smartphone. The exciting part will however be to be using the hovering with the pen for drill-down information in various apps on the large screen.
The only issue, about the tablet, is the price, the product is hitting the retail market at a whopping $399 which is $70 more than the iPad mini. Is the company taking too much of a risk with the price? the tablet will be slightly higher in pixel density, will have the digital pen support, ability to upgrade the memory with a microSD. So it’s the users who will decide whether to cash in on these features or just let it go and take the cheaper iPad mini.
