Forum Added for the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0
Recently, Samsung announced the newest model in its Galaxy Note lineup. The Note 8.0 comes in as the smaller sibling to the full-size Note 10.1, the tablet that was awarded most productive tablet of the year in the XDA Holiday Guide 2012.

Those interested in talking about Samsung’s latest tablet tech can do so by visiting the newly created Galaxy Note 8.0 forums.
