Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 comes with S Pen: here is how it works
The Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 is not just a direct iPad mini competitor, it is also a Note device and that means it supports the S Pen and the apps that come with it.

We took a quick look at the way the S Pen works on the Note 8.0 and were overall impressed with its pressure sensitivity and Samsung’s interface tweaks to accommodate the pen functionality into Android.

We fired up the S Note application and you can see our quick demonstration of all the features bundled with it right below. The S Pen itself is the size we’ve come accustomed to - not too thick or long, but still fairly convenient to use. It has a single physical key that allows you to switch between different modes very conveniently so for example you can switch between drawing and erasing in a single click.

Just as with other Note devices, whenever you take out the S Pen out of its slot, the tablet automatically switches to the relevant apps.

And for all the rest of the little details around the S Pen and S Note on the Galaxy Note 8.0 take a look at our video right below.

I think even the ones with non-cellular features have them and should that be an issue like when people say that it's tablet and it'll be useless to have speakers, then simply don't use them for calls or use a headset :D

It would be hilarious to see if you're going to make a call on the note 8 placing it on your ear

It depends where you live; from what I've read elsewhere, it will be Wi-Fi only in the U.S. and will not have calling capabilities.

If the price is right (and that would be $300) this is a good device, if it's more expensive, no reason to go for it over the soon-FHD Nexus 7 or the Nexus 10.
