The Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 is Samsung's latest response to Apple's iPad. The Galaxy Note 8.0 will go head-to-head with the iPad mini and Samsung is hoping that a feature in the Galaxy Note 8.0 will set itself apart from other smaller screen tablets on the market. Samsung is including the very popular S-Pen stylus that it currently uses in its very popular Galaxy Note smartphones and Galaxy Note tablets.

Samsung will officially unveil the tablet when Mobile World Congress kicks off on Feb. 25. The Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 is expected to feature an 8-inch 1280x800 TFT Super Clear LCD display, a 1.6GHz Exynos 4 Quad CPU, Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. 16GB and 32GB of internal storage, 2GB of RAM, 5-megapixel rear camera, 1.3-megapixel front camera, WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n, and HSPA+ in the 3G model, and a 4,600 mAh battery. The device is expected to retail between $249 - $299.

Samsung is hoping that by offering the tablet in the $249 - $299 price range it will undercut Apple's iPad mini, which starts out at $329 for the 16GB WiFi version. The tablet will also be going head-to-head with other popular smaller screen Android tablets, including the Kindle Fire HD and Google's Nexus 7. We'll know all the official details when Samsung officially announces the tablet this week. So stay tuned.
