Removing the S Pen from the device will automatically launch innovative features such as Pen Detection that will suggest adapted menus that it thinks you’ll need and Page Buddy, a feature that will intuitively activate your most recently adapted S Note home screen. S Pen technology is now so advanced that it doesn’t even have to touch the screen.

S Pen Gesture allows images and content to be easily edited and cropped, whilst Paper Artist and Photo Note allow photos to be artistically personalized.

Dual View’s split screen accommodates optimal operation of different apps, such as launching the S Note on the web browser screen and allowing content to be resized, dragged and dropped as required.
Multi-tasking is extended to phone calls*. Pop Up Note allows you to access S Note at any time to keep track of key actions and Pop Up Video ensures you can keep surfing the web whilst chatting – content windows can be easily resized by pinching to enlarge or reduce.

Perfect info-tainment partner
Packed with features to engage, entertain and excite, the GALAXY Note 8.0 supports your practical everyday needs.

Anyone remember Sega? Anyone wonder why they failed? They released so many hardware in such a short period of time, it started to piss people off.

Samsung better take a close look at what they are doing and pay attention to what the consumer has to say. Who gives a f#$k about Apple. Why is Samsung trying to compete with that company. Apple is going to collapse and fade away anyways. They are such a poser. The reason for their stupid patents lawsuit is because they are running out of “ideas” to steal from other companies.

We want product support and updates. We don’t want to buy a new tablet every damn year.

Why release so many freaking tablets? Why not focus on the Galaxy Tab 7.7. It was the perfect size tablet.

If Samsung were to release a new 4G Galaxy Tab 7.7, I would buy it in a heart beat. This tablet is THIN. Very nice.

Is Samsung ignoring the 7.7 because of Apple and their stupid frivolous patent lawsuits?

With all these new hardware coming out, Samsung is going to have a hard time keeping up with updates and support.

Look at how many of us are still stuck on ICS.

This is a fail, it is too big by about 15mm in width, it cannot fit into a formal jacket pocket, back or front pokcket of a jean/ trousers. You needed to carry some sort of thing to carry this failblet – not cool. I like to walk into a business meeting without anything in my hand, only to take it out from my pocket when I need it. That is what I did with my Sammy Tab 7 plus. And there is no NFC as well – such a failblet. Sammsung need to talk to me and I will show you what is a tablet.
