AT&T is launching the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 on June 21st; for those of you who want more than what a traditional tablet offers, the Galaxy Note slab might be your ticket. Not only does it support the S Pen, it also has many of the same features that are offered on the Samsung Galaxy S4 like Smart Stay. This feature uses the front-facing camera to make sure that you are still awake and watching a video...

I was about to be upset because I *just* bought the wifi version. But oh, that's on contract. No thank you.

I was about to be glad, but as soon as I saw AT&T.
oh, that means no cellular connectivity. No, thank you.

I thought buying something on contract you would save money? I guess that's not the case here.

Well, were you going to use the cellular data anyways? If so, then yes, you're probably saving money. No? Then you save money, but pay more up front. The wifi only version is $399/16GB at costco.com, but you can't add cellular internet later. Is the extra bit worth it for you?

Noo but if I'm going to get the Note 8.0 I'd pay for the WiFi model, use my phone as a hotspot and get the updates first and not have to wait for At&t to push that out.

There's nothing wrong with that. I'd be more tempted if it was a bundle offer that included the LG Optimus G Pro (look, flying pigs!). So, yeah. No go for either of us :P The main thing I like about the cellular tablets is that they have their own juice. Then I don't drain my battery faster by making my phone a hotspot.

Maybe if I bought two S4s they will sweeten the deal even more and reduce the price another couple of bucks

The note 8 is a overpriced piece of plastic. The one I had out of the box had screen banding to the point I couldnt even see the screen.

Samsung completely misjudged the Note 8 pricing from the get go....
