Galaxy Note 8.0 offers Air View which allows you to hover over the screen with the S Pen and open up an email in a separate pop-up box. Smart Rotation uses the front-facing camera to make sure that the screen is always oriented correctly. The front-facing camera is also used in the Smart Stay feature which allows the screen to stay on as long as you are awake. Once you fall asleep, so does the screen. Multiwindows allows the user to split the screen in two rqual parts so that two apps can be used at the same time. There are many other features that Samsung has baked into its Note series.
MWC starts on Monday and besides the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0, there will be a number of new phones and tablets revealed. The best way to find out all about the devices that everyone will be talking about is to keep your eyes right here for the best MWC coverage.

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

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

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.

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
