Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 launches today: UK first on tour

It's time to grab hold of the next massive smartphone/tablet hybrid experience from Samsung, this time in the form of the phonecall-capable Galaxy Note 8.0 releasing in the UK today. This device will be available around the world soon and very soon, but for now we're working with the basic wi-fi edition in the greater United Kingdom. This version of the device does not have the ability to connect to mobile data, therefor rendering its phone call abilities as limited to your 3rd party apps - but yes, you can speak into it however you like.

Samsung Galaxy S4 vs Note III specifications battle: very unofficial

As Samsung gains a whirlwind of attention this week before its big Samsung Galaxy S4 event on the 14th, (one week from today), both the S4 and the Note III have been given some rather impressive unofficial specification sets.

Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 benchmarked: Tiny tablet packs a punch

Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 benchmarked: Tiny tablet packs a punch

Samsung wasn't too keen on us benchmarking the Galaxy Note 8.0 back when it was announced on Sunday, but we couldn't resist stopping by here at Mobile World Congress to run some preliminary tests on the 8-inch Android tablet. The pen-enabled digital notepad runs a 1.6GHz quadcore A9 processor with 2GB of RAM, and so we had high hopes for Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean. Sure enough, the iPad mini rival put in a decent showing.

Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 hands-on: yes, it is a phone too
