S Pen-enabled tablet loses 3G, 4G access in initial release
The Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 will go on sale in the United States on April 11th.

Galaxy Note 8.0 set to arrive in Charcoal Black as well as white
Although Samsung revealed its iPad mini-challenging Galaxy Note 8.0 last week at MWC, it only revealed a white version, which was slightly unusual given its propensity to offer models in at least two color variants. A leak courtesy of Phone Arena suggests that anomaly will soon be corrected, as it looks set to be joined by ‘Charcoal Black’ model as well. No details about specifications have been revealed, but it is safe to assume that they should be identical to the white variant.

Midsize tablet focuses on S Pen functionality
Samsung has introduced a new tablet, the Galaxy Note 8.0, that adds yet another display size to the company's tablet offerings. As part of the Note family, the eight-inch device bridges the gap between the 5.5-inch Galaxy Note II and the full-size 10.1-inch tablet, though it appears to serve primarily as a successor to the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 and the company's direct competitor to the iPad mini.
