Product Description

In case some of you missed the announcement, the GALAXY Note 8.0 is Samsung‘s latest tablet for 2013. It sports a 1.6 GHZ Cortex A9 Quad Core Processor, has an 8 inch TFT display with a resolution of 1280 x 800, giving it a pixel density of 189 ppi. The tablet also comes with Google’s Android 4.1.2 operating system right out of the box as well as Samsung’s TouchWiz UI as an overlay. The tablet has a 1.3 MP front facing camera and a 5 MP rear facing camera. As soon you can see in the picture above the tablet comes with the S Pen.

The S Pen experience has been greatly improved with the GALAXY Note 8.0 giving you the ease of using a traditional pen and paper with speed, efficiency and accuracy. Features include a suite of S Note templates and tools that allow you to create, edit, manage and share documents, as well as seamless multi-tasking thanks to Quick Command, continuous text input and Multi-Window View which means the portable 8” screen can be split and used to access a number of live applications at the same time. The Note 8.0 comes equipped with 2 GB of ram to handle intense processes like games or playing back high definition content and all this is powered by a rather huge 4600 mAH battery.
