I wish I was in London right now, cuz this thing is gonna be a longggggg time for Samsung to release this to my country.

Better buy it at Samsung store, because I didn't use eBay before. Plus, Note 8.0 isn't available at eBay yet.
15. SleepingOz (Posts: 2485; Member since: 22 Oct 2011)
Not yet but I'm pretty sure it'll be available on ebay before many Samsung stores over the world.
If you really can't wait, give it a try.

I can wait!
Thanks for the advise by the way! :)

Aiming for the next generation Nexus 7, but the Note 8 is for sure a cool tab.

People say that the iPad mini is overpriced. What would you call this then?
9. oister85 (Posts: 385; Member since: 27 Apr 2012)
For the price of the note 8.0 I think is really cheap, this tablet doesn't compare with the mini in feature.
11. SleepingOz (Posts: 2485; Member since: 22 Oct 2011)
iPad mini is no where near the Note 8.0 in term of features.
You can't do half of what you can do on the Note 8.0, with the iPad mini(even the ipad 4 doesn't come close).
16. bowarrow01 (Posts: 1; Member since: 07 Apr 2013)
Please tell what the note 8.0 can do that the mini can't?
Not that i am trying to bash on the note.
19. SleepingOz (Posts: 2485; Member since: 22 Oct 2011)
Really?! Damn! I would've never thought that such tech illeterate still exist on PA..
Well, customization, background multitasking, real-time multitasking(multiwindow), bluetooth file transfer, side-loading apps, setting 3rd party apps as default apps, etc.. The list is too long!
20. Ninetysix (Posts: 1073; Member since: 08 Oct 2012)
I also get those with the cheaper Nexus 7 at half the price. A Jailbroken iPad mini can also do all of those. What's your point? At $520, you don't think this tablet is overpriced?
21. wendygarett (unregistered)
Compare to other stylus device, this is much more cheaper...
don't cry, just because you yourself cannot afford one :)
17. GTR722 (Posts: 211; Member since: 20 Oct 2012)
Samsung fanboys will tell everything....this Note 8 should be priced at 299$
14. InspectorGadget80 (Posts: 5657; Member since: 26 Mar 2011)
I wish I live in Europe u guys always get the goods first
23. isaiahg17 (Posts: 7; Member since: 08 Apr 2013)
Dont worry. The tablet costs $399 USD. It may be more exspensive than the ipad mini, but that is understandable since it has way more features. Besides, I think its meant to go up againts the ipad mini 2 which will probably be around the same price.
