3G-enabled Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 hits the FCC but that's not the version you want

Samsung’s newly announced Galaxy Note 8.0 has been caught at the FCC but unfortunately, this isn’t the version you’ll want to buy. The reason is simple – it’s neither a Wi-Fi only model (for those who don’t want another carrier contract) nor a 4G LTE-enabled one. Rather, it’s stuck to 3G speeds which may be good for some folks whereas some others will find them insufficient. That said, we’re hoping that a full-blown LTE version will soon follow footsteps of its 3G cousin and get’s FCC’s seal of approval only to be introduced in the States soon afterwards.

Again, the Galaxy Note 8.0 rocks an 8-inch 1280×800 pixels touchscreen, 1.6GHz Exynos 4 Quad processor, 2GB of RAM, GPS + GLONASS, dual cameras, 4,600mAh battery, while Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean is running the show (with Sammy’s customizations).

  • Why can’t Samsung just announce a US release date and price already? Drives me nuts. How can I plan a tablet purchase unless I know when it will be available? If I have to wait another month I can hold out but if its 4 months I need to buy something else.
