Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 listed in Euroland

Written by Peter Scott



Optimistically priced at €479 to €530


We all know Samsung likes to borrow ideas from Apple, but for some reason the Korean giant has started to emulate Apple’s pricing as well.

A couple of European retailers have already listed Sammy’s upcoming Galaxy Note 8.0 and the prices seem pretty outlandish. The 16GB version is listed at upwards of €479, while the 32GB SKU should go for €530+. Of course, these are not official prices, but they give us a pretty good idea of what to expect. Samsung apparently thinks it can charge more for its 8-inch slate than Apple or Google. Good luck with that.

A quick glance at the spec sheet posted by retailers reveals no surprises. The Note 8.0 features an 8-inch 1280x800 screen with S-Pen support, quad-core Exynos 4412 SoC clocked at 1.6GHz, USB 2.0, Bluetooth 4.0, A-GPS and a microSD slot.

It also features 3G connectivity in UMTS/HSDPA/HSUPA/HSPA+ flavours, but it hardly justifies the saucy price tag.  Another upside is the compact size. The Note 8.0 measures 211 x 136 x 7.95mm and weighs 330 grams, making it one of the smallest and lightest Android tablets in its class. It is still somewhat bigger than the iPad mini though.

There is still no word on availability, but one retail claims it will be available as of February 20. You can check out the listings here.
