Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 coming to Europe in three versions?

Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 coming to Europe in three versions?
Last month, the top dude at Samsung Mobile, J.K. Shin, confirmed that the Korean company would be taking the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 to Barcelona for MWC later this month. Competing against the Apple iPad mini, Samsung played it smart by going right after the Apple tablet's achilles heel, its low-resolution display which is revealed through its 162ppi pixel density. On the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0, the 1280 x 800 resolution expected for the display will be the same that the OEM uses on the Samsung GALAXY Note 10.1. While on the latter, that resolution produces a rather low 149 ppi, on the 8 inch screen it should raise the pixel density more than enough to top the current iteration of Apple's 7.9 inch slate.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 will go after the 7.9 inch Apple iPad mini

Thanks to information from the Bluetooth SIG, it looks like early information we had that there would be two model numbers associated with this device was two-thirds correct. Three model numbers, GT-N5100 (Wi-Fi + 3G), GT-N5110 (Wi-Fi only), and GT-N5105 (Wi-Fi + 3G + LTE) are listed with the Bluetooth SIG for European release.

The Wi-Fi only version of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 is rumored to start pricing at €450 ($603.45 USD). This is one area where Apple might have an edge with the 16GB Apple iPad mini priced at €339 ($454.60). For those curious, the Note tablets differ from the Galaxy Tab line of tablets because of their S Pen capabilities.

You can expect it to be built cheap but not sold for cheap. Google Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 build quality so you will know what i mean.

Can somebody explain to me why Samsung can not manage to deliver cheap tablets ?
What kind of price is that?
Too expensive.....
Even with the nexus 10 the price wasn't such a good deal as the lg nexus 4 and the asus nexus 7.

I have serious doubts that´s going to be the price, when the original Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 costs less than than. It would be suicidal.

Funny guy. The nexus 10 is cheap. Pound for pound its easily the best deal between the Nexus 4 and Nexus 7.

chrome book cpu
4k screen
2gb

for $399. That is crazy.

if they used a low res screen, mobile CPU, and 1gb of ram they could hit the $199 Nexus 7 price point easily but they chose to use more high end internals.

Stop spreading false information and inform yourself about 4k before saying the Nexus 10 has a 4k screen. You might have gotten confused with people saying 4 megapixel screen which isn't 4k.

Doesn't matter. My points still stand. Just replace 4k with 2k.
