laxus00, 17 Apr 2013is this good over the note 2?The Note 8 has practically the same processor and GPU, but the Note II has FM radio, led, 8 mp camera, longer battery, SAMOLED screen, pocketable and cheaper as it's over 6 months old. I high recommend the Note II for being a very reliability with battery stamina, vibrant screen, smooth functions and excellent connections.
I need the Note 8 for the screen area with its good screen for drawing and presentations.

True, the Note 8 is quite expensive but it's the only one with a Wacom digitizer. That has weight for artists like me.

i'm gonna wait for the charcoal black variant... and by december, because for sure there would be some drop in the price. this is currently priced as much as the bigger Note 10.1.
I hope its available next week. I really want to buy this one. (From Philippines) :)
Will there be a Wifi Only version in the future here @ Philipines? Its dumb when using a device that HUGE for taking pics, calling! messaging? and it cost more than Php9000, then the note 2 price also drops from Php25000 (http://www.sulit.com.ph/index.php/view+classifieds/id/10416815/Samsung+Galaxy+Note+2+3G+4G+LTE+Gray+White+SALE?referralKeywords=note+2&event=Search+Ranking,Position,3-18,58) see link of sulit.com

TheNeighbor, 14 Apr 2013It's US$585 here in Manila with the free flip cover promo last Saturday.Yes, but remember: tariffs. I think our tariffs on these kinds of goods are high.
Nsonaso, 15 Apr 2013Please what is the price for the 16GB version in US DOLLARS? The US is only getting the wifi version for $400. This is in reaction to criticism from Tech reviews of the 3G version being "silly looking" to be used as a phone against the ear.
I personally don't mind having the phone function as a secondary phone while I keep my Note II as my main. The Note 8 having 3G data makes sense for navigation and not dependent on wifi connection while out of the house. Good for security apps like Cerberus to text command the Note 8 for obvious reasons.

Is already Note 10.1 pricing at that high!
