Samsung unveiled the Note 8.0 in Mobile World Congress complete with full voice features built right in. Essentially being an 8-inch tablet that doubles as a smartphone should you need it. While we’re still awaiting the 3G/4G LTE voice-enabled model to hit the streets, it has cleared the FCC. However, the model hitting the streets next week will be WiFi only.

In case you missed our Galaxy Note 8.0 hands-on, here’s all the details. This slate rocks an 8-inch screen with a 1280 x 800 resolution HD display, and runs with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. Then under the hood is a 1.6 GHz quad-core Samsung Exynos processor, 2GB of RAM, and it sports a pair of cameras too. The star of the show however, is the WACOM digitizer screen and S-Pen stylus for true content creation and consumption. Check it out:

The Galaxy Note 8 is essentially their answer to the Nexus 7 and iPad mini, but we’ll reserve judgement until we get one in for a full Android Community review. It sports a 5 megapixel rear camera, 1.3 front for video chat, and a decently sized 4,600 mAh battery so you should be enjoying the slate for hours on end. Today Samsung confirmed it will be available online and in stores throughout the US for $399 for the 16GB model, so if you’re interested I’d be running down to Best Buy to give it a spin. Stay tuned for a full review coming quick!
