No cellular phone (for voice calls). Maybe a cellular data modem option?

I'm thinking it does have voice. Look at the top there looks to be an earpiece grill.

look more like the S III, because the top and bottom is slightly rounded

The Note 8.0 needs to be less than $350 or I'm going to get the Nexus 7 and call it a day!!

I'm hoping for 299, if not I will get the Nexus 10 for 399.

I agree. The Note 2 was too expensive and ended up getting the S3 (AT&T). I hope history doesnt repeat itself

This beauty will appeal to android nation, and the gorgeous iPad mini will continue to do well with iOS users, and the general consumer. It's a stalemate as far who'll switch over, cause most people are vested in the Eco systems of the chosen platform.

This is true. I didnt understand about eco systems....until I invested heavy in Android. I came from Win Mo...but didnt get alot of apps. I didnt stick with Win Mo long enough to be invested heavy.

I can do it for game consoles. Not that big a deal. Tablets? Hard to say. PC's? I can do that too.

So the battle of the low res tablets that will unfortunately sell pretty decent? Ipad mini vs Note 8.

Only tablets I am interested in are the high resolution ones. So Galaxy Tab 3 plus or bust Samsung.

1024 x 768 is low res......1280 x 800 is not....

A high res Nexus 7 reboot would be awesome as well.

SAMSUNG has a knack of overpricing their tablets...I do hope this one (albeit slim chance) will be priced reasonably well....Anything more than $320-$340 is a no go since the Exynos 4412 is about to get replaced soon....but a lot better than that crap called Tegra 3 though

looking forward to the review, Wish my N7 had a Sylus like the Spen and been asking for this for a while... also why saying Samsung is planing this because of the iPad mini?
