Something that hasn't really been kept too much of a secret is Samsung's Galaxy Note 8.0 tablet. MobileGeeks are reporting they've spotted the 8-inch slate on a bunch of Austrian stores that are all "supplied by the same distributor".

We should expect two versions of the Galaxy Note 8.0, with 16GB and 32GB being the differences between them. The 16GB model should be around 450-480 euros, which is around $600-$650 USD. The 32GB version bumps this price up to the 490-550 euros mark, which converts to roughly $660-$740. Definitely getting into the upper end of expensive here.

Specifications-wise, we should expect the 8-inch slate to have a WXGA resolution of 1280x800, a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera backed up by a 1.3-megapixel front-facer, an S-Pen stylus, Blueooth 4.0 and GPS. We can definitely expect Android to be floating around inside the Galaxy Note 8.0, but which exact iteration is unknown right now. We should also expect cellular capabilities, but only 3G unfortunately. Availability in Austrian stores is said to be the 19th of February, which is only three weeks away.
