Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 visits the FCC wearing AT&T's LTE bands
We understand that the Wi-Fi only version of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 is not enough for some of you mobile tablet users. Despite the hype, Wi-Fi is not yet everywhere. Heck, even the Jetsons had to carry around a mobile hotspot with them. But the good news is that a version of the slate with LTE connectivity is apparently on the way. We come to that conclusion because the the device just had a friendly visit with the FCC that revealed that it was carrying 4G LTE bands friendly to AT&T.

The version of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 that visited the Feds had an 850 / 1900 GSM radio and support for LTE Bands 2, 4, 5 and 17. All of this indicates that the tablet could easily connect to AT&T's pipeline.

Now that this hurdle is out of the way, we are one step closer to having the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 available in the states for those who are not handcuffed to a Wi-Fi connection. And in case you are new to the tablet scene and want to know what makes a Samsung Galaxy Note tablet different from the Samsung Galaxy Tab slab, think stylus. The former offers the S Pen and lets you show off your creativity. In addition, those 'gimmicky' (or cool, depending on your point of view) features like multi-window, Air View, Pop Up Play and Smart Stay are found on the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0. The Samsung Galaxy Tab line has more traditional capabilities.
