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.

I am not aware of anyone else with an 8 inch anything O= ...
I wouldnt want a phone, I would just be getting a Wifi version. At that, there are 7's, and 8.9's and 10's. Even the Note 10 has 1280x800. The fire and Nook 8.9's have 1920x1200 and are cheap as hell, the Nexus 10 has an amazing 2560x1600 (ironically made by Sammy). Any decent new phones and phablets I have seen announced or released has 5-6 inch screens and 1920x1080.
I like a good cheap product, thus why I bought a Nexus 7 for $199, but I am looking to upgrade. Whatever, obviously this one is not for me.

Wait I'm confused, I don't believe there WILL be a Wifi version of this device. As far as I know, anything designated as a "Note" will be a phablet only.
I see your point, I just feel we aren't fairly comparing similar devices. This isn't a tablet. And obviously Samsung can't compete with the FireHD, which is sold at a near loss by Amazon, hoping to make it up on the back-end with media sales.

"Wait I'm confused, I don't believe there WILL be a Wifi version of this device"
One Says LTE and Wifi, the other says Wifi only for us, but both do say Wifi
"LTE and WiFi-only models are currently in the works, with that latter variant headed to US shores."
" While in most international markets the Note 8 will include 3G (HSPA+ 21) capability, in the U.S. it'll strictly be a Wi-fi-only tablet"
"We shipped it on Saturday. Then on Sunday, we rested." -- Steve Jobs on the iPad launch
