The 16GB Wi-Fi version of the Galaxy Note 8.0 is available for pre-order from today at Samsung's Experience stores in Sydney and Melbourne. It will sell for $459 outright and be available in "early April".

The 3G version of the Galaxy Note 8.0 is expected to be launched at a later date, but Samsung hasn't revealed pricing or a specific availability time frame for that model.

The Galaxy Note 8.0 was officially announced last month at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) trade show in Barcelona, Spain. It has an 8in screen, includes a Wacom-powered stylus called the 'S Pen' and can make regular voice calls just like a smartphone.

The Galaxy Note 8.0 allows users to use the S Pen on the capacitive "hardware" buttons for back and menu, comes preloaded with the Awesome Note app and includes an infrared port that allows it to act as a universal remote control for devices around the home.

The tablet is powered by a 1.6GHz quad-core Samsung Exynos 4 processor, has 2GB of RAM and comes with either 16GB or 32GB of internal memory. There's also a microSD card for extra memory expansion, along with a 4600mAh, non-removable battery.

The Galaxy Note 8.0 will initially ship with the 4.1.2 'Jelly Bean' version of Google's Android platform and comes skinned with Samsung's TouchWiz user interface.

Consumers can pre-order the Galaxy Note 8.0 at the new Melbourne Samsung Experience Store, Shop 2351 at Highpoint Shopping Centre, Melbourne, and the Sydney Samsung Experience Store at Sydney Central Plaza, 450 George Street, Sydney.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
