Unveiled last month at Mobile World Congress 2013 in Barcelona, Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 has just been officially released in the Philippines.

The price tag of Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 is P23,990 for the 3G + WiFi model, with plans for the WiFi-only model still not on the horizon.

Samsung currently trails Apple in the worldwide tablet market with its 15.1 percent market share during the fourth quarter of 2012, but has shown an almost three-fold growth for the same period, owing to stellar sales of its new tablet devices.
Some of the new features of Galaxy Note 8.0 is the S Pen, it can now be used without actually touching the screen through the advanced Air View technology. The S Pen needs only to hover over the screen to preview pictures, videos, and e-mails without opening the file or application in full.
