Samsung's soon-to-be-announced Galaxy Note 8.0 tablet seems to be the current blue-eyed boy of the grapevine. Leaked images and specs of the Galaxy Note 8.0 have been doing the rounds for some time and now, per reports, the tablet is already listed by e-retailers in Austria and will cost nearly €479.90 (approximately $645) for the 16GB version.
The Galaxy Note 8.0 tablet is set to make its debut at the MWC 2013 in Barcelona this February, and will come with an S Pen stylus in tow.
According to a Mobile Geeks report, several online retailers in Austria have begun listing the Galaxy Note 8.0 on their Web sites.
"A number of online stores list the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 already and give not only information about the expected prices and the availability date, but is also confirmed by a majority of the specifications," reported Mobile Geeks (translated).
The site lets on that while "rummaging in the price comparison" it found that the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 was listed on "a number of hit Austrian stores that are obviously all supplied by the same distributor."
Per the report, the GT-N5100ZWA model has 16GB internal storage and is priced between €450 to €480. The GT-N5100ZWW model, which has 32GB, is listed between €490 to €550. Mobile Geeks also discloses that €479.90 is possibly the official price for the 16GB version.
Additionally, while the above-mentioned models will come with 3G connectivity, consumers can also expect to see a Wi-Fi only variant (GT-N5110), which was recently spotted on FCC.
The Galaxy Note 8.0 tablet, per the report, is expected to hit the shelves on Feb. 19 per the report, which seems quite unlikely considering the tablet will make its debut at the MWC 2013 which is from Feb. 25 to Feb. 28.
Additionally, Staples has also listed the Galaxy Note 8.0 tablet for €391.99. Previous reports have indicated that the Galaxy Note 8.0 tablet will cost between $249 to $299. So, we will have to wait and see who's right.
