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.

Re: Galaxy Note 8 - That's just too damn BIG!
Shame about the screen resolution. Samsung are becoming pioneers in innovation yet the screen resolution is still low. Either way, I'm going to end up buying it.
