Galaxy Note family grows
Samsung is expanding its
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.

Well of course not. You cannot expect a "Phablet" to cost the same as a similar sized tablet. It's far more expensive to manufacture these, unless you're comparing it to an LTE tablet.
But I mean..who even cares? What's your point? When every single mobile device out there has 1080p screens standard, give me a call lol.

I dunno, I guess it all comes down to price. Samsung has said they intend to step it up in the tablet game, and they keep missing IMHO. The tab series suck, every single one of them. The notes are nice but all lagging behind the competition in the res. Hey, if you like it, go for it... When I heard a new 8 inch Note was coming I was exited, really assuming it would have a higher res screen. Just a let down to me.

At least AMOLED would have been nice. They've fixed all the issues (gamma, pentile, limited color profiles) of past displays. I guess cost is still a factor, though.
I'm curious what the price will be. If they really wanted to make a splash, they should swap out the Exynos for Clovertrail+ and make a unique, low cost, S-Pen enabled Win8 tablet.
