Samsung s Galaxy Note 8 tablet has been given a UK release date and pricing, although it isn’t all good news. Samsung’s 8-inch iPad mini rival has been given a pre-registraion page by Carphone Warehouse and an expected release date of April 2013. Carphone Warehouse have held off at present on pricing details but UK tech retailer Handtec lists the 16GB Wi-Fi only version for £371.99.

As i said it wasn’t all good news the price may put gadget llovers off as the Google Nexus 7 tablet starts at only £159 and has similiar specs. This move by Samsung also makes there new quad-core tablet more expensive than the iPad mini which costs only £269 and even that has been critised for it’s high pricing. If you havent seen what the Note 8.0 has to offer be sure to check our coverage from MWC.

    I was eagerly awaiting so see if the Galaxy Note 8.0 was worth considering as a phone alternative once my contract runs out, however after hearing about the price news I’ve lost interest. The Asus Fonepad is almost the same size with the same specification. The only loss is a pen that has no friction on the screen, but is £200 cheaper. What are Samsung thinking? If they didn’t wan’t us to buy it, wouldn’t it be cheaper not to announce it in the first place?
