    Default Samsung mobile head confirms 8-inch Galaxy Note, the rival of iPad mini?

    An 8-inch Samsung Galaxy Note no longer exists solely in the realm of unicorns and Apple TVs. A Korean news site is reporting that Samsung mobile honcho JK Shin has confirmed plans to release a midsize version of the tablet.

    Samsung's game plan of late seems to be to cover all bases, with a wide array of smartphones and tablets that come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and price points. An 8-inch Galaxy Note to continue the trend could debut at February's Mobile World Congress.

    Shin failed to mention any other specifics of the new Note besides the screen size, but earlier rumors claim the middle child of Samsung's scribblable device family will feature an 8-inch 1,280x800 Super Clear LCD display, a 5-megapixel rear camera, a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera, 2GB of RAM, and 16GB to 32GB of internal storage with a slot for more memory. It also packs a 4,600 mAh battery.

    With so many choices for touch-screen devices available now, I have to wonder how long it will be until Samsung puts its malleable display technology to good use and allows us to mold our own form factors, silly putty style.

    The news come from:

    8 inches seems to be a pretty good size for a tablet. The 10 inch ones are too big for comfort on the subway, while the 7 inch ones feel just a touch small.

    As a current owner of 64gb iPad Mini I look forward to seeing Samsung's implementation of the 8" form factor tablet.. Would I switch? No.. The Mini is simply an achievement all unto itself.. and I agree with the statement that 8 inches is the *Sweetspot* for Tablets.. I also own a the 5.3" Galaxy Note and have no plans of relinquishing that device as well..:-)
