Default Galaxy Note 8 - That's just too damn BIG!

I thought this would be more of a tablet designed device but its just a HUGE SG3 and I mean HUGE!

I think the Note 8 inch is more like the Note 10.1 - meaning it's not designed for telephony use. Probably Sammy's intended response to Apple's new offering.

One of the other shots shows clearly that it has, what looks like, a speaker at the top. Just like a phone. Which doesn't surprise me as much as that there is also a huge bezel. I don't see how a phone call could be made on this.

Does that not look like a speaker grill at the top of the device?

I don't think it's a phone, and would never use it as a phone, but it really looks like a phone.

mind BLOWN!!

But really where do we draw the line? Why can't larger sized tablets with cell modems also have the ability to make a phone call. I probably wouldn't use it, but it should be there. I gues there shouldn't be a difference between a tablet and phone. Just Android devices with cell modems that come in different sizes.

Ere...How about.... don't buy it? That's the beauty of Samsung, options.
