Samsung has announced the availability and pricing details of its Galaxy Note 8.0 tablet in the United States. This Note series 8-inch tablet will be available in the country beginning April 11 for $399, Samsung noted in a press release.
Samsung is only releasing the Wi-Fi version of Note 8.0 in the country; there is no word on HSPA+ version. The Galaxy Note 8.0 will be available at retailers like Amazon, BestBuy, Best Buy Mobile, h.h. gregg, Newegg, P.C. Richard & Son, Staples and TigerDirect.com.
Originally announced at Mobile World Congress in February this year, Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 packs an 8-inch 1280x800p resolution display. It is powered by 1.6GHz quad-core processor. Among other features, the tablet comes with 2GB of RAM, 16GB of on-board storage and S-Pen support.

“The Galaxy Note defined an entirely new smartphone category and the Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet redefined the tablet experience for consumers. With the Galaxy Note 8.0, we fully expect to ignite the mid-size tablet market Samsung pioneered with the first Galaxy Tab. The Galaxy Note 8.0 is small enough to fit in your pocket or purse and packs the power needed for full mobile entertainment and productivity,” said Travis Merrill, vice president of Samsung Electronics America, Inc., in a statement.
