Samsung’s Galaxy Note 8.0 coming exclusively to AT&T

AT&T has scored exclusive rights to carry Samsung’s Galaxy Note 8.0 on its network, the company announced on Wednesday. AT&T did not announce pricing or a release date for the 8-inch tablet and only said that it would be available “in the coming weeks.” Samsung first debuted the Galaxy Note 8.0, which takes its design cues from Samsung’s popular Galaxy S smartphone series, at Mobile World Congress earlier this year. The tablet’s specs include  an 8-inch 1280 x 800-pixel TFT display, a 1.6GHz quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, 32GB or 64GB of internal storage, microSDXC support, a 4,600 mAh battery and Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean.

Will success be Samsung’s downfall? Samsung seen ‘stretching itself too far, too fast’

Samsung (005930) made good on an impossible promise and the world’s top smartphone vendor is now seeing the hype surrounding its mobile products reach colossal levels. While this is great for Samsung in the near term, one industry watcher believes it may also be clouding management’s judgement as the company stretches itself “too far, too fast.” More →

Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 review

In the global smartphone market, Samsung (005930) is a force to be reckoned with. The company extended its lead during the fourth quarter as it shipped an astounding 63.7 million smartphones, representing 29% of the global market according to research firm IDC. Samsung’s next closest competitor was Apple (AAPL) which sold 47.8 million iPhones for 21.8% of the market during the same time span. The story is much different when it comes to tablets, however. IDC estimates that Samsung shipped 7.9 million tablets in Q4 2012 for 15.1% of the global market, which represented big year-over-year growth put still paled in comparison to Apple’s 43.6% share. In other words, Samsung still has a lot of work to do. More →

Samsung is just trolling us now, and it’s not alone

Samsung is just trolling us now, and it’s not alone

This has gone too far. I was one of many people to cast serious doubt on Samsung (005930) when it birthed the phablet category with the Galaxy Note. The screen was gorgeous and the hardware was solid, but using this gargantuan handset as a phone looked and felt ridiculous. Then Samsung sold 10 million of them. Fair enough. More →

Samsung sets sights on iPad mini with new Galaxy Note 8.0 tablet

Samsung sets sights on iPad mini with new Galaxy Note 8.0 tablet

Samsung (005930) is finally gaining some momentum in the tablet market after a slow start with the original Galaxy Tab, which launched in late 2010. The South Korean consumer electronics giant now has a number of slates available in the 7- and 10-inch ranges, but Apple’s (AAPL) 8-inch iPad mini opened new doors for mid-size tablets following its release this past November. Samsung was already putting a mid-range tablet together when the iPad mini debuted last year, and now the company is finally ready to take the wraps off its latest Note series device: The Galaxy Note 8.0.

Rumor
Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0

Samsung may price Galaxy Note 8.0 slightly higher than iPad mini

Samsung may price Galaxy Note 8.0 slightly higher than iPad mini

Here’s how you know that Samsung’s (005930) brand has become very powerful — it can consider pricing one of its tablets even higher than a comparable Apple (AAPL) tablet. PhoneArena directs our attention to Bulgarian tablet retail website Tablet.bg, which claims that that Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy Note 8.0 tablet will sell for roughly €359, or €10 more than the iPad mini’s €349 price tag. Since the iPad mini sells in the United States for $329, it’s probably reasonable to expect that the Galaxy Note 8.0 will sell for at least $300 as well, which means that Samsung would be eschewing the $200 tablet trend started by the Amazon (AMZN) Kindle Fire and the Google (GOOG) Nexus 7.

Samsung may have accidentally leaked the Galaxy Note 8.0

Samsung may have accidentally leaked the Galaxy Note 8.0

Samsung’s (005930) big reveal at Mobile World Congress later this month might not be much of a surprise at all at this point. SammyHub on Thursday spotted what appears to be a leaked picture of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.0 that’s on track to be launched at MWC in Barcelona. The leaked picture looks a lot like other leaked pictures we’ve seen of the Note 8.0, which looks a lot like a larger version of Samsung’s hit Galaxy S III smartphone. Samsung’s latest tablet, an attempt by the company to counter the success Apple (AAPL) has had with its iPad mini, will likely come with an 8-inch display with a 1280 x 800 pixel resolution, a 1.6GHz quad-core processor and a 5-megapixel rear camera.

New purported Galaxy Note 8.0 images confirm S-Pen support

Earlier this week, images that were purportedly of Samsung’s (005930) upcoming Galaxy Note 8.0 tablet leaked onto the Web. The slate looked like an oversized Galaxy S III smartphone and included the company’s physical home button, which had perviously been omitted from earlier Galaxy tablets. French blog Frandroid posted additional images of the tablet on Friday that confirmed it will include an S-Pen stylus, similar to the Galaxy Note II and Galaxy Note 10.1. More →

Samsung’s iPad mini rival, the Galaxy Note 8.0 tablet, revealed in leaked images

While Samsung (005930) has had tremendous success over the past year with its Galaxy brand of smartphones, the company hasn’t been able to generated the same amount of buzz for its Galaxy tablet line just yet. But now SamMobile points us to the first leaked pictures of Samsung’s new Galaxy Note 8.0 that the company hopes will become its flagship tablet in 2013. The pictures, posted on Italian website DDAY, show an 8-inch white tablet that looks like a large Galaxy S III and features thicker side bezels than Apple’s (AAPL) recently released iPad mini. The pictures also show off the new tablet display’s 16:10 aspect ratio with a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels, which packs more pixels per inch than the iPad mini display and its 1,024 x 768 resolution. We’ll get our first official glimpse of the Galaxy Note 8.0 when Samsung shows it off at Mobile World Congress next month.

Samsung mobile chief confirms 8-inch Galaxy Note tablet to debut next month

Samsung (005930) will show off a new 8-inch device at the Mobile World Congress trade show next month, and thankfully it will be a tablet and not another giant smartphone. Engadget on Monday spotted an interview that Samsung mobile chief JK Shin conducted with the Korean iNews24 where he confirmed that his company will unveil an 8-inch Galaxy Note tablet at MWC in Barcelona. Earlier rumors have indicated that the new Note will feature a display with a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels, 2GB of RAM, a 5-megapixel rear camera and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. More →
