Samsung Galaxy Note® 8.0 (Wi-Fi) Only



Samsung’s Galaxy Note 8.0 Wi-Fi, has some new features that Samsung hopes will bring them another hit in their long model line that is Galaxy.

The features in the Galaxy Note 8.0 includes:

S Pen: Create, Compose, Edit 

Get the comfort of a pen and the control of a mouse. It’s precise enough for jotting meeting notes, personalizing business emails, creating art, or just doodling.

Multi Window: True MultitaskingWatch the game live while making the final changes to the company’s earnings report. With Multi Window, you can use two applications at the same time to get more out of every minute of your day.
Polaris® Office: Take Your Work With YouDon’t just open documents—edit them. Add comments in Microsoft Word, create Microsoft PowerPoint® presentations, even build Microsoft Excel® spreadsheets, right from the Galaxy Note 8.0.

Dropbox™ 50GB Free: Stay in Sync

Your Galaxy Note comes with 50GB free Dropbox storage for 2 years, a $100 value, so you can auto sync to save and access your files from your tablet or any device.

Enterprise ReadyYou can bring your own device to work, thanks to the enhanced security, accessibility, and connectivity features. Samsung Enterprise solutions make the Galaxy Note 8.0 safe to use at work, and keeps company data secure. Group Play: Collaborate FreelyGroup Play lets you share your screen, so the entire team can watch the presentation on their devices—in real time, wirelessly. No projector? No problem.

Google™ Play Apps: It’s All a Download AwayExplore thousands of apps, games, e-books, and more in the Google Play Store™. Unsure of what to download? Use Samsung Apps to find the best apps for your Galaxy Note 8.0.

Whether this is enough to change users minds on buying a 10.1” tablet reminds to be seen because Carphone Warehouse has the 8” at £339 and the 10.1” at £349. For £10 I would think that most buyers will plump for the 10.1. But with the smaller screen size this just might be the tipping point for some buyers.
