Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 goes on sale in UK for £339

Samsung hits price above iPad mini for Wi-Fi only Galaxy Note 8.0

Samsung has suddenly put its Galaxy Note 8.0 phablet on sale in the UK with a price tag of £339.

The tablet which has the ability to make phone calls and send text messages is available exclusively at the Samsung Experience Store at the Westfield Stratford shopping centre. Samsung said other channels will follow. See also: Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 hands-on review.

Samsung has launched the Galaxy Note 8.0 with no notice and is giving away £60 worth of content to go with it. The £339 price is for a 16GB Wi-Fi only model which is a fair amount more than the Apple iPad mini which starts at £269 for the equivalent model, let alone the £159 Google Nexus 7.

The Galaxy Note 8.0 comes bundled with a £20 Samsung Learning Hub voucher, a two month subscription to The Times, AVG Anti-Virus Pro, access to the Samsung Music Hub for free for one month, Need for Speed Hot Pursuit, Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 2 and 50GB of Dropbox storage for two years.

Samsung introduced the Galaxy Note 8.0 at this year's Mobile World Congress (MWC). It comes with a 1.6GHz A9 quad-core processor and 2GB of RAM. Design-wise it looks like a super-sized version of the Galaxy S3.

Software includes QuickCommand, Multi-Window View and the phone and tablet hybrid, like other Galaxy Note devices, comes with an S Pen stylus with its own set of apps such as Paper Artist.

As well as retailers the Galaxy Note 8.0 will be available on a contract from some UK mobile networks in the near future. We'll bring you a full Galaxy Note 8.0 review as soon as we can.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
