The tablet market is ever growing and as more users invest in tablets, there are more choices hitting the market every month. The latest tablet on the block is Samsung’s very own Galaxy Note 8.0, an 8-inch tablet with the S-Pen. But does it have what it takes to take on the likes of the Apple iPad Mini, Google Nexus 7 and the Amazon Kindle Fire?

The tablet has an all-plastic body, very typically Samsung and an 8-inch display with a resolution of 1280X800 pixels. In terms of screen resolution, it does fare better than its completion, but we wonder if the iPad Mini 2 with Retina Display will spoil this success in a short while.

And for those busybodies who need to do a million things all at once, this one’s really the ideal multitasking device you’ve been waiting for. Open up multiple apps all on the same screen – browse the web while you’re taking notes or even check your mail in the midst.

And of course there’s the gorgeous S Pen – its USP which lets you scribble notes on the device. But is it worth spending an extra $70? That’s for you to decide.
