Samsung takes Note
Samsung is widely expected to release the Galaxy Note 8.0, apparently “growing” the popular Note 2.0 from a screen size of 5.3 inches (1280 x 800 pixels), to an iPad mini-like 8 inches. Details and purportedly leaked images were posted on the French language site Frandroid. The rumors: quad-core processor, Android Jelly Bean, 2GB of RAM, and a 1,280-by-800 pixel display (compared to 1024-by-768 resolution for iPad Mini). Rumors this week say Samsung may price it slightly above the iPad mini, which starts at $329.
