The Galaxy Note 8.0 is available now at Bestbuy and Staples for $399.99 for the 16GB version. Staples is offering a $25 Google Play credit when you purchase the Galaxy Note 8.0. It doesn't appear that Bestbuy is offering a $25 Google Play credit with your purchase. There are also plenty of cases and other accessories for the Galaxy Note 8.0 already available which we've gone over already.



How many of you are planning on picking up the Galaxy Note 8.0? It's looking like a good device, especially for those that love the S Pen but don't want a 5.5-inch device as a phone or a 10-inch tablet. It's right in the middle of their other Note devices. I may have to run to Staples and pick one up. Let us know what you think about the Galaxy Note 8.0 in the comments down below.
