MWC 2013: Sammy takes on iPad mini 


Although it was already rumored and listed in several markets, Samsung has officially unveiled its newest Galaxy Note device, the Galaxy Note 8.0. Aimed to be a direct competitor to Apple's iPad mini, the Galaxy Note 8.0 is based on a 1.6GHz quad-core CPU, it features support for phone calls and support for Samsung's praised S-Pen stylus.

The new Galaxy Note 8.0 will fit snugly between Samsung's Galaxy Note 10.1 and Note II. As noted earlier, it is built around an 8-inch 1280x800 screen and powered by an Exynos chipset with 1.6GHz clocked quad-core CPU paired up with 2GB or RAM. It will be available with 16 or 32GB built-in storage with microSD card slot for expansion, 5-megapixel main camera and 1.3-megapixel front one, Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean OS, Samsung's S-Pen and a hefty 4,600mAh battery.

The connectivity side includes 802.11abgn WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0 and A-GPS with GLONASS. According to Samsung, we will see WiFi-only, 3G and 4G LTE versions. Unfortunately, the availability date has not been announced. Unofficial listings put the price at upwards of €400 for the cheapest SKU, so it's hardly a bargain.
