King of Exclusives: AT&T to Carry the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 With LTE


AT&T announced this morning that they will exclusively carry the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 with LTE here in the U.S. at some point in the coming weeks. Yes, another “exclusive” for AT&T. Oh how we love limiting consumer choices! (/s.) 

As you may recall, the Galaxy Note 8.0 with WiFi arrived in the U.S. back in April for $399, however, this is the first with wireless network connectivity. The device sports a 1.6GHz quad-core processor, 4,600 mAh battery, 8″ HD display (189ppi), 5MP rear camera, 1.3MP front camera, 16GB internal storage, microSD slot for expansion, and Android 4.1 (with TouchWiz).

You’ll find S Pen features, and all of the other multi-tasking and productivity goodies you have come to love on devices like the Galaxy Note 2 and Galaxy Note 10.1. It is a “Note” after all.

It’s a solid little tablet that Tim has already spent plenty of time with.

Once we know a price and date for this little guy, we’ll be sure to pass it along. And you probably figured this out already, but since they nabbed the “exclusive,” it won’t be coming to any other carriers for the time being.

    Carrying it as an exclusive makes sense if it had the phone. May as well buy the international version for 399…

    • Tasker is way too much. I’ve downloaded it and played with it, not a fan. There’s just way too much to learn, way too much to wade through. I don’t have the time or inclination to bother with it. haha

        “Setting Profiles” in the play store. This is so much better then Tasker and Locale. I don’t know why this hidden gem doesn’t get more press…

    Ugh. After E3, I don’t want to hear the word exclusive ever again.

  • Why is this such a big deal on tablets if it doesn’t have phone hardware? Why on Earth would you want to hold a 7″ tablet up to your face to make a call, nevermind an 8″ or 10″? Seems really pointless…

      Wouldn’t be be better to have the option though, if you wanted to? I’ve always sort of liked that part of the Android ecosystem. Someone asks, “Can I…?” and the Android response is, “Sure, if you want to!”
