Samsung galaxy note 8 spotted !!!

by Webdesignerx / January 24, 2013 4:23 AM PST

The first images of what is claimed to be the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 have surfaced, showing a design that more or less jives with a previously leaked render of the device. That design reminds us more of an over-sized smartphone than an 8-inch tablet, and borrows from the stylings of the Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 2.
The placement of a speaker in the normal earpiece position, a physical home button with captive navigation keys, and a portray orientation are all features more typical to a smartphone, which has us wondering if Samsung has taken the phablet craze one step too far.

In reply to: Ps

But as I see a lot of Android things at the office and have seen folk return such because of browser and support issues with Android, these things are starting to reach a nice peak. That is, folks have begun to figure out if they want one or not.

At least that initial phase where folk thought they could replace their PC is over (at least here.)
