I like my Note 8.0, its hardware specs still very good...once we get 4.4.2, I am sure it will be even better!
a couple weeks, I am sure Samsung will push 4.4.2 update
only thing is rooting 4.4.2 is going to be quite challenging because of darn Knox that comes with it...

My guess is we won't see it till about the end of March or so. And if its carrier branded the even later but if its At&t the I doubt the note 8 will see it at all since they block alot of Samsung stuff

Doesn't 4.4.2 limit write access to external SD cards? This is bad news for non root users!

carrier branded tablets probably see it much later than wi-fi international version.
