Galaxy Note family grows

Samsung is expanding its Galaxy Note family this week with a fresh entry: the Galaxy Note 8.0. As its name implies, this new member features an 8" TFT display (sorry, no AMOLED here) with a screen resolution of 1280x800.
 
Inside, you'll find a 1.6GHz Samsung Exynos 4 quad-core processor paired with 2GB of RAM, Bluetooth 4.0, 16GB or 32GB of internal storage, microSD expansion slot (supports up to 32GB) and a 4600 mAh battery. The tablet/smartphone will run Android 4.1.2 with a dash of TouchWiz.
 
Models being shown at MWC 2013 are equipped with HSPA+, but models destined for the U.S. in Q2 will feature LTE capability.

oh, it does...weird, kept seeing that it was just another tablet for the past few months at phonearena

Might still go for it but will wait to see what the next nexus 7 is like. I do like the s pen screen stuff.

I see this as THE first tablet that has call functionality.

While the specs may not be cutting edge, I see this as the start of the next generation of tablets, that you can make calls from.

Use this with Bluetooth units in your cars (built in or visor mounted) and headsets or speaker phone use.

Please a headset in public locations. Respect is a two-way street.

Says who?

Not in the article at least. HSPA+ and LTE are data standards. There is no approved VoIP solution for these on any carrier yet.

I don't get my information from these articles.

Samsung say it, for a start:
