I want to have the Note 8.0 im expecting that its cheap for replacement of my Galaxy tab 2. 🙂 the other high-end tablets.. maybe next year. haha


Yay,keep them coming,Samsung.
Great job sammobile.
Whatever Samsung and Apple device release, I will buy.
Because their products are so reliable unlike Nokia.


Well there should be less burn in with the SLCD vs oled, but the change is probably to cut down on the cost, but I feel Samsung might also cut down on the quality of materials like they have been doing, I hope I am wrong though.


Note 8″ with 7.95mm thickness? Sweet. Hopefully they dont give us tablets with head-scratching specs. Like Note 10.1.. Not AMOLED. Looks eeeew.. Bad decision. AMOLED should be a standard to mid-high end devices.
