The Next 'Note'worthy Galaxy

Apple may have sued Samsung to block sales of the company’s highly anticipated Galaxy S III smartphone in the United States,however that did not stop the South Korean company from giving birth to the newest member of the android tablet family,the Samsung Galaxy Note 800.

Globally called as the Galaxy Note 10.1 N8000,the 600gram 'featherweight' tablet brings with it some funky new specifications and a few nifty features.This new device may have even surpassed the latest installment of Apple to the tablet world. 
Being lighter,thinner and with a larger display screen than the iPad 3,the Galaxy Note 800 is unerringly a white beauty. Unlike other tablets available in the market,which have speakers on the rear or frame of the device, the new Note has a refreshing new design with speakers impregnated on either side of the screen. 

Now this may be news to a few people out there,but this new device is actually built up of plastic,which isn't really a bad thing,but when compared to the iPad and the Asus Transformer Prime it feels pretty cheap and not worth the 40k pricetag attached to it.

Other than its plasticity the tablet isn't really a let down. The top of the tablet houses all the basic controls;you have the power button,micro SD card slot,an IR beam(which allows you to use the device as a remote),the headphones jack and SIM card slot,which does not only allow you to access 3G,but also let you make calls! 

Keeping aside the physical aspects,lets get down to the major specifications. The 10.1 inch tablet has an internal storage capacity of 16GB(expandable upto 64GB) with an inbuilt RAM of 2GB. It accomodates a rapid 1.4 GHz Quad-Core processor with android version 4.0,the Ice-Cream Sandwich. With a 5MP rear camera and 1.9MP front camera,this device should capture your eye. Also the new S Pen, specific to the Note 800,is contained in the bottom right of the tablet.

  • 8.9mm thick weighing in at 600gms.
