With this latest edition to its arsenal, Samsung has tried to beat Apple in its own game. As a response to the iPad, this tablet offered by Samsung will surely make a huge dent in Apple’s share in the market owing to its features and looking at the popularity of Android 4.0, this tablet is here for the long run. A good screen with a decent resolution, a very light weight frame and a beautiful back finish will definitely lure eyeballs but the thing that will motivate people to shell the big bucks required to buy this masterpiece is the S Pen.  Not long ago, sceptics were making a note of the death of the stylus but with Galaxy Note, Samsung re-introduced it in the market but with Galaxy Note 800, Samsung has re-invented it. The notes you take, the drawings you make, the presentations you edit and the equations you solve on the Note 800 with the S pen is simply flabbergasting. Not only this, the stylus fits right into the tablet so that you won’t even notice it while using only your fingers on the screen that allows two separate windows to be open simultaneously. You can also alter the size of these windows even if you are watching a movie.

In conclusion I will like to mention that thought he newest member of the Samsung family seems to be a little heavily priced, you will not repent it when you get your hands on this machine. With so many features to offer, this one here is truly worth every cent you spend on it.
