This is just what I want. An 8 inch tablet with LTE, has call and SMS capabilities and bezel narrow at the sides. Resolution is acceptable. I just hope the battery will last long enough to be used as a cellphone.
what the hell is wrong with samsung's exynos 5250 chip?? waiting for a tab or a phablet with exynos 5250 chip n mali t604 gpu... snapdragon n tegra have captured exynos's market...

lindle777, 27 May 2013Yes, I agree that Apple specs are better but iOS just sucks.This tab got released in India. Sports a quad core processor with S pen. Costs around 30,000 Rs. Tablet details specify model as N 500 and comes only with android 4.1.2
naim, 25 May 2013no adobe flash for browser???????????????adobe flash not available for android ICS+ and iOS too... they use html5, and adobe discontinued their flash for android and iOS...
This tablet is just what I want! I love those thin bezels! Will buy it as soon as I can. Those crying about the specs should go buy the Note 8. This is a budget tablet with enough features to satisfy the average user like me. You can't get all those high-end specs at a low price. I have also checked that this tablet is just about the same size (though a bit longer) than the Galaxy Tab 7 Plus which I also own but can't carry about. Perfect for holding in one hand while using. Have been looking for an iPad Mini sized Android handset. This is it! Thank you Samsung.
......Battery user non-replaceable.
It's a common tablet, nothing special.
If the price is for 249$-279$ then its worth if its for 300$ or more then you should better buy an ipad mini !
This design is stolen it just look lile the iPad Mini Thin bezel square
1 question. Where is the galaxy tab 1 8.0 and galaxy tab 2 8.0??? As far as i know this is the 1st samsung tablet that is 8 inches.
Samsung should consider using 800 x 1280 pixels as in this Tab for the Galaxy Mega 6.3 inches. This will increase the ppi and aspect ratio of 16:10 is perfect!
very nice spacs. real upgraded model next to tab 2. 8 inch tab is really good. Price should be around 20k.
