/// Samsung Takes Aim at iPad Mini With Galaxy Note 8.0

February 24, 2013  |  All Things Digital


Samsung is on a path to offer a device in every screen size with today’s introduction of the Galaxy Note 8.0. Debuting at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, the Galaxy Note 8.0 is positioned between the 5.5-inch Galaxy Note II and Galaxy Note 10.1 , as Samsung looks to re-establish itself as a player in the mid-size tablet market and take on the likes of the iPad Mini and Nexus 7 . The Galaxy Note 8.0 has an 8-inch, 1,280 by 800 pixel touchscreen and comes with an S Pen stylus like the rest of the Galaxy Note series. But it offers a number of new features not found on the other devices. The first is something called “Reading Mode.” Whenever you launch an e-reader app, the tablet automatically adjusts the contrast of the screen to help reduce eye strain and provide a reading experience more akin to an e-ink display. It works with Samsung’s Readers Hub, as well as third-party apps like the Amazon Kindle app for Android. Samsung is also preloading the Galaxy Note 8.0 with several apps. One is the company’s new Awesome Note app for taking notes, creating to-do lists and composing diary entries.
