Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 might cost $250-$300, affordable 7-incher to arrive for $150-$200
This following speculation is pretty common sense, but reports are that Samsung is prepping a new batch of 7-10" tablets for launch in the first half of the year and avoid direct confrontation with an eventual iPad refresh.

The 7-incher will allegedly be the most affordable of Samsung's upcoming slates, at $149-$199, depending on the memory configuration, while a step up will arrive in the form of the Galaxy Note 8.0, which we saw in the leaked H1 roadmap today.

The 8" tablet with S Pen functionality will reportedly cost $249-$299, which is a pretty decent pricing for a stylus toting slate, and a tad less than Apple's iPad mini, which will be its direct competitor. Nothing is said about the 10-incher, but you might have heard that the Nexus 10 is about to receive a graphics refresh later in the year.
