Take Note: 8" Samsung Tab Hits Oz

By Oonagh Reidy | Sunday | 17/03/2013

Samsung's mid sized 8" tablet, GALAXY Note 8.0, is hitting Oz next month.

The Android Galaxy Note 8.0 has a 1.6GHz A9 quad-core chipset, a WXGA 1280x800 display, runs 'Droid 4.1.2 Jellybean, has a 5 MP Camera up front and a 1.3MP at the rear.

Galaxy Note 8.0 tablet has intelligent stylus pen called S Pen, which is a digital pen and paper and converts all your scribbles to text;  you can draw on the S Note digital pad via Idea Sketch and crop images.

You don't even even have to touch the screen to use S Pen -  just hover over the screen to see videos, emails, photos and appointments on S Planner without having opening the application thanks to Air View technology.

Removing the S Pen will automatically launch Pen Detection that suggests menus that it thinks users need and Page Buddy, which activates the most recent S Note home screen.

Following on from the success of the Galaxy Note, the 8" tablet is ideal for work with S Planner feature to manage meeting notes, to-do lists and diary entries.

It also has Dual View, meaning you can have two screens open at once for multi-tasking.

Samsung has also upgraded Note's Chat-On app for instant messaging and has a slew of multimedia content available from its Game Hub, Learning Hub and Music Hub.

It has 2GB of RAM and 16GB or 32GB of internal storage.

The 8 inch Note "is an ideal accessory for the busy, modern and creative person" said Tyler McGee, VP - Telecommunications, Samsung.

Samsung's "reading mode" technology turns Note 8.0 into an ereader.

The Note 8.0 WiFi model will set you back $459, is available for pre-order at both the new Samsung Experience Store Melbourne and Sydney, and will go on general sale in early April.

Samsung grew its marketshare 220% last year and is looking to capitalise on the momentum around its Tabs and Note line.

"The tablet market is one of the key focuses for Samsung this year and launch of the GALAXY Note 8.0 illustrates Samsung's innovative thinking when it comes to this category," said McGee.

"The launch of the GALAXY Note 8.0 offers consumers a compact tablet with the convenience of portability that is packed features for outstanding productivity.

 "With its compact size, convenient multi-tasking capabilities and sophisticated S Pen features, the GALAXY Note 8.0 offers Australians that will reignite the creativity potential of Samsung's mid-sized tablet market."
