After launching last week in the U.S., the Galaxy Note 8.0 is now available to purchase in Canada. Right now, the device can be bought at Best Buy, Future Shop, Staples, and other authorized retailers, priced at $429 — which means it’s significantly more expensive than in the U.S.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 was one of the bigger announcements at Mobile World Congress last week, and we had fun with it during our hands-on. If you’re not a fan of white tablets, however, you may have been disappointed that this was the only color Samsung had on show.
But it may not be the only color Samsung launches this month. A Charcoal Black version of the Galaxy Note 8.0 has appeared in a leaked press photo that’s quickly been making its way around the web.
BARCELONA, MOBILE WORLD CONGRESS — I’ve used both the original Galaxy Note and the Galaxy Note II for fairly lengthy periods, and although I’ve quickly gotten used to their super-sized displays, there was one thing that never failed to frustrate me. Samsung didn’t make the capacitive buttons beneath the display compatible with the S Pen, so when you’re working with the stylus, you have to move it out of the way and use your fingers to go back or access a menu.
Sure, it’s only a small flaw, but it’s still a frustrating one — as I’m sure anyone who’s ever owned a Galaxy Note will tell you. Thankfully, Samsung has fixed this with the new Galaxy Note 8.0.
BARCELONA, MOBILE WORLD CONGRESS -Mobile World Congress 2013 is now underway here in Barcelona, and there’s one device we couldn’t wait to get our hands on: the Galaxy Note 8.0 — Samsung’s answer to the iPad mini. In addition to its 8-inch display, the device boasts a 1.6GHz quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, and of course, the Note’s trademark S Pen.
But can it give the iPad mini a run for its money?
Cult of Android will soon be on its way to Barcelona for this year’s Mobile World Congress — which kicks off Sunday, February 24 — where we’re expecting a whole host of announcements regarding new smartphones, tablets, apps, and accessories. More than 65,000 people will attend the event, and they’re all there for one thing: to see what’s on the horizon in the world of mobile for 2013.
We’re expecting new devices from Samsung, LG, ZTE, Huawei, Nokia, Asus, and more — and you can follow all of our coverage from here. In the meantime, here’s what you can look forward to.
Samsung’s Galaxy S IV event is “definitely” scheduled for March 14, according to sources familiar with the Korean company’s plans. On Monday, we heard the device would be unveiled on that date at an event in New York City, and those claims have now been “confirmed.” However, it’s still unclear when the device — which is likely to be one of the most successful smartphones of 2013 — will go on sale.
Earlier this week, Samsung announced a Garnet Red version of the Galaxy Note 10.1 LTE in South Korea, and it published a number of press shots to show off the new device. It seems that within those press shots, the company may have accidentally revealed the Galaxy Note 8.0 as well.
I say “accidentally” lightly, because I have no doubt that Samsung revealed the device on purpose.
Samsung vice president JK Shin has confirmed that the company will be announcing the Galaxy Note 8.0 at Mobile World Congress next month, but you don’t need to wait until then to see what it’ll look like. Thanks to these pictures of the device out in the wild, we can see that the iPad mini competitor looks a lot like a giant Galaxy S III, with a traditional button setup that’s unlike other Galaxy tablets.
Samsung Mobile vice president JK Shin has confirmed to a Korean news outlet that the company will unveil the Galaxy Tab 8.0 at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona next month.
