Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 tablet tipped for MWC 2013

Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 tablet tipped for MWC 2013

In less than a month we'll be seeing a brand new collection of devices prepared for the masses at Mobile World Congress 2013, and today's tip suggests that a Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 (8-inch tablet) will be amongst them. With two sizes of Samsung Galaxy Note out on the market besides the first 10.1-inch tablet Note, it's not too much of a stretch to think Samsung wouldn't also bring on an 8-inch version of this S-Pen-toting lineup. This machine has today been connected to previous leaks of device codename GT-N5100, spoken about in the past as a 7 or 7.7-inch beast that's never seen the light of day.

LG Display hunts Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 sales ban in Korea

SlashGear interviews Futura 2000 on Samsung and the power of cross-branding

SlashGear interviews Futura 2000 on Samsung and the power of cross-branding

The artist / designer known as Futura 2000 has executed a rather interesting set of collaborative projects in his lifetime, painting a portfolio of historically significant cross-overs that's lead him straight to Samsung. The folks at Samsung took the opportunity very recently to team up with Futura for the first time to present a unique use-case for the Galaxy Note 10.1 (tablet with S-Pen stylus) and its major potential in the hands of this creative icon and legend. In our interview we found that though Samsung presents this man as a larger-than-life hero here in their second collaboration (here using the Galaxy Note II as a central device), he's actually quite the down-to-earth conversationalist, and has shown his approach with the Galaxy Note device series to be made with the same intrigue as your everyday average gadget enthusiast.

In other words, we can probably expect this ad to ruffle some feathers.

Tablets are for fun, Laptops are for work

Tablets are for fun, Laptops are for work

If there's one solid idea in the modern mobile market that I agree with consistently, it's that tablet-sized computers are made for entertainment first, and work only as a necessity. I've tried to bring a tablet to a press conference before, with and without a physical keyboard accessory to pad its ability to work as I need it to, and it's never good enough. I'm not just talking about a Samsung Galaxy Tab or a Note, not just an iPad, not just an ASUS Transformer of any kind - all of them; they're all made for entertainment.
