For the inauguration of the Sales Tech Talk program, I was assigned to pick our very first device to review. If you have read my previous posts about Nexus 7 being the perfect form factor and how Samsung Galaxy S4 out performs other competitors, then what better to review than the latest Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0.
Our Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 is finally here today, and I have the honor to unbox it. The first thing I noticed “Made in Korea by Samsung.” I haven’t seen an electronic that is not made in China for a long time, so it is nice to see that for a change.
The package is environmental friendly; it is made of 100% post-consumer recycled paper and printed with soy ink. Inside the box, it contains the Tablet, AC Plug, micro-USB cable, and the getting started guide and regulatory material.
The tablet itself looks beautiful with some pretty impressive specs:
- 8-inch 1280 x 800 TFT display
- Exynos 1.6GHz quad-core processor with 2 GB of RAM
- 16GB of storage
- 5MP rear camera and 1.3MP front facing camera
- S-Pen stylus
- micro-SD card slot supports up to 64GB
- 4,600 mAh battery
- Android Jelly Bean 4.1.2 with TouchWiz UI
I will be the first person from our team to take this beast for a spin, so stay tuned for my in-depth impression in the coming week.
