Wi-Fi version of Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 receives Android 4.2.2 update
The Wi-Fi version of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 tablet has started to receive the Android 4.2.2 update via an OTA update. Those who have yet to receive the notification that the update has arrived can hook up their slate to that big ol' PC on the desk and pull out the update from Samsung Kies. Besides the updated OS build, the tablet will be more stable and there are some small UI changes to TouchWiz as far as Contacts, S Planner and Email are concerned. The LTE version of the slab has already received the update.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 offers an 8 inch screen with resolution of 1280 x 800. That works out to a pixel density of 189ppi. Under the hood is a quad-core 1.6GHz Samsung Exynos 4412 processor with the Mali-400 MP4 working on the graphics. 2GB of RAM can be found on board along with 16GB of native storage. The rear facing camera weighs in at 5MP and records video in 1080 x 1920 at 30fps. There is also a front-facing 1.3MP snapper. A 4600mAh cell powers up the tablet.

Unlike the Samsung Galaxy Tab line of tablets, the Galaxy Note 8 offers many of the features found in Samsung's phablet line such as S Pen capabilities, SAFE, Air View and Multi Window. And now, the Wi-Fi version will be running Android 4.2.2.

And what about my Note 10.1 Sammy? This tablet came out last year and has similar specs. This is the reason why I switched from a Note 2 to iphone 5s. Their showing more love to newer devices first.

There is a very big chance that the Note 10.1 will get updated, not to 4.2 but straight to 4.3, also the note 2 will get updated to 4.3 around October and November, you have to keep in mind that Samsung has many devices and it takes a lot of time to update them, by the way, every company shows more love to the newer devices, they attract more buyers and they need to have the latest features, but they older ones like the galaxy s3 will still be updated.

Every company but Apple. 3 year old iPhone 4 had iOS 7 2 days before iPhone 5s was released. Every Android oem cares about sell first upgrade much later. And it doesn't help that Verizon locks and relocks bootloaders screwing people out of updates. Pitiful if you ask me.

When are you going to learn android updates aren't like apples? Too bad the iphone 4 is still behind any 4.1 device. And it's also too bad apple takes away certain features on devices every upgrade. Stop acting as if apple updates every device and they are perfect!. Besides sammy has way more devices to worry about then ol apple.

A 3 year old iphone gets the update. But, how many features does Apple cut out. In essence, it gets that device's version of the update. A 1 year old 4 didn't get siri even though it was easily capable of running it. Also, what good is the update when it only brings features another OS was doing years ago? Your note 2 still does 100 more things that your new, updated device can't. That's an update in name only.

I just purchased the note 3 (never thought I would say that) but figured it's the best for what I'm intending to use it for (productivity) and so far it's been great. Big learning curve as this is my first phablet but I'll get there. As a wp8 fan this os usually isn't my cup of tea but I will give it a chance.
