Samsung unveils Galaxy Note 8.0, new iPad mini competitor

Samsung has officially revealed the Galaxy Note 8.0 tablet. The Galaxy Note 8.0 has an 8-inch screen, which is approximately the same size as Apple's iPad Mini tablet.

The Note 8.0 tablet runs a TouchWiz version of Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean, and sports an Exynos 4 Quad processor clocked at 1.6GHz, 2GB of RAM, 32GB or 64GB of internal storage, micro SDXC support, a 4,600 mAh battery, and an 8-inch TFT LCD display running at 1280 x 800. The Note 8.0 also includes an integrated 3G antenna, but a Wi-Fi-only version will be available shortly after the 3G version launches.

In terms of design though, the Note 8.0 doesn’t really bring anything new to the table. It resembles a blown-up Note 2 Phablet with its portrait orientation, physical home button and soft-key placement more than it does a Note 10.1 tablet. It’s significantly slimmer than the last pint-sized tablet Samsung pushed onto the market too, which makes holding it with one hand slightly more comfortable even though it has a larger display. The Note 8’s microphone is sensitive enough to deliver reasonably crisp, loud audio even in a room full of eager, chatty tablet tinkerers.
