In this case you’ll not be able to tell based simply on the device’s ability (or inability) to make phone call as, yes, you can indeed do so with the 3G international release. Inside the United States we’re not quite going to be so lucky to have such an oddity on our hands as an 8-inch display-toting smartphone, at least not at first: we’ll have to settle for the strict tablet iteration.
This device is a Galaxy Note – Samsung’s brand for a line of devices that in some cases are closer to smartphones, in some cases much more a tablet. The Galaxy Note 8.0 works with an 8-inch WVGA (1280 x 800 pixel resolution, 189PPI) and working with TFT LCD display technology, mind you. This device has a 1.6GHz quad-core A9 processor for all your next-generation processing action, and you’ve got a couple of cameras on it as well – 5 megapixels on the back, 1.3 megapixels on the front.
