Samsung’s 8-inch competitor of iPad mini — the Galaxy Note 8.0 — was officially unveiled for public viewing at MWC 2013, just a couple of days ago. The feature that differentiates this tablet from other 8-inch tablets is the ability to make phone calls. Yes, Galaxy Note 8.0 is a calling tablet.

Let me tell you, with Galaxy Note 8.0, Samsung has brought nothing new to the table — Note 8.0 looks like Galaxy S III and features hardware specs that are more or less like Galaxy Note II. Like all other 2013 Samsung devices, Note 8.0 has chrome-plated edges and a not-so-great-looking plastic build.

This question would be answered when Samsung puts a price tag on this iPad mini competitor.
