Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Pre-order available now

Galaxy Note 8
Samsung finally made it official at Mobile World Congress by announcing the Galaxy Note 8. Like many of you have been waiting when the Galaxy Note 8 will be available to purchase, well looks like at least for the moment you can Pre-order your Galaxy Note 8. This is one step closer to getting your hands on the S-Pen enabled tablet.

So far we know that Samsung will be releasing a 3G and a WiFi version of the Galaxy Note 8. With the 3G setting you back $639.50 and the WiFi version $539.50. A bit pricey for 16GB tablet, but if you really need a 8-inch tablet with a digitizer to have a pretty experience using the stylus, well the Galaxy Note 8 is your only choice at this time.
Samsung improves the S-Pen experience every new release of a Galaxy product they release. At 5.3 x 8.3 x .3 you can easily use the Galaxy Note 8 as your note pad that you normally carry to take notes. You also get great display resolution at 1280 x 800 with 189ppi, though I was really hoping to see a higher ppi number. This also makes the Samsung Exynos Quad-Core 1.6GHz with 2GB of RAM pretty much zip along lag free with pretty much anything you can throw at it.
With the Galaxy Note 8, Samsung has included a good size battery at 4,600 mAh. We still need to see some testing, even though it is a very nice size battery, we would need to see how efficient the Exynos at 1.6GHz will be. Hoping to at least see 8 to 10 hours of good productive work with the Galaxy Note 8.
You also will see that the Galaxy Note 8 comes with a MicroSD slot, Bluetooth 4.0, WiFi a/b/g/n,GPS and IR for using as your remote control for your media center, this is a plus!
At the moment, Samsung hasn’t mentioned when the Galaxy Note 8 will be available in the US, for now you will have to import your Galaxy Note 8 which should be available in the second quarter. The price tag might be a bit hard to sell when you can pick up the bigger bother Galaxy Note 10.1 3G for around $580. But the again, this is packing a faster processor and is much more portable.
