Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 may arrive in Europe in March, priced to compete with the iPad Mini
The Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 has been leaking like crazy over the past few weeks. This new tablet will be presented by Samsung in Barcelona at Mobile World Congress next week. We’ve already seen it in the wild a couple of times, and we even got word about probable pricing in Europe. Yet those rumored price points were a bit high, so thankfully now we have another report that mentions that the Galaxy Note 8.0 could in fact be more affordable than first thought.
In Bulgaria, the Note 8.0 should become available before the end of March for 699 leva for the Wi-Fi-only 16 GB variant. That translates into approximately €358, which is a lot closer to iPad Mini pricing territory than the €450 the previous rumor on the matter had it selling for. So it’s probably safe to assume that elsewhere in Europe, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 could be offered for around €350 in the cheapest configuration.

The 3G-enabled version of the tablet will be sold in Bulgaria for 869 leva, which is about €445. Keep in mind that there are variations in pricing across Europe, but this should give you a very rough idea about Samsung’s plans for its newest Note.
Of course we can’t wait to find out the official information about this tablet, so stay tuned and you’ll get it when we do.
