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.

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

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.
