It's here: the tablet meant to slot right in between your existing 10" slate and that portable 7" slate that you can tote around with a single hand. It's the Galaxy Note 8.0
, and it's finally coming to U.S. shores. Starting April 11, U.S. buyers will be able to snag a Note 8.0 from Best Buy, Newegg, Amazon, Staples and a host of other retailers. It's equipped with an S Pen, just like the Note II, and ships with Multi Windows support as well. The Galaxy Note 8.0 will also be the first product to feature Samsung
WatchON, a new search and recommendation service that alleviates the chore of channel surfing and makes finding TV shows and ondemand video content faster and easier.
With the built-in IR blaster, the Galaxy Note 8.0 acts as a universal remote, and while the U.S. version won't ship with a cellular voice radio, some of the other specifications include: an 8" WXGA (1280x800) display, 1.6GHz quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, Wi-Fi, a 4,600mAh battery, 16GB of internal memory, a microSD expansion slot, 1 month free of unlimited music streaming in Samsung's Music Hub, and a $25 Play store credit.
It'll ship in white for $399.99, with a slew of accessories to follow.
