MWC 2013 started at Barcelona and Samsung as per rumor finally announced its prestigious product, the Galaxy Note 8. The best part of this tab is its size because Samsung’s previous product were either too large (10.1 inch tab) or too small ( 5.5 inch tablet) but the size of this Galaxy Note Tab 8 is 8 inch which is the right size to handle it. The other best part of this tab is Samsung’s S-Pen, a digital pen that provides a natural mode of writing on the tab.
The Pen software is also enhanced, the Air View feature of Pen software lets you hover the pen over specific Samsung apps so you can see previews of videos, emails or photos without actually launching the apps. The pen also now allows you to control the menu and back buttons on the device. The tab also has feature of multi-window, which allow you to put apps side by side. For instance, you can have a website or book on the left side of the screen and then take notes in the S Note application on the right.
