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.

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.

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 are going to continue to work with them to make sure they understand the reality of the Internet.  A lot of these people don't have Ph.Ds, and they don't have a degree in computer science." -- RIM co-CEO Michael Lazaridis
