    The way some people feel about the price, you might as well take a hundred dollar bill and light it on fire.

    You don't feel that it overlaps with your N2? I ask because I want to get a new tab -- I have the 7" PlayBook, and I was thinking a 10" tab would complement the N2 better. That leads me to the Note 10.1, but the Note 8 being brand new is a big lure, despite the inflated price.

    399.99 is a beat steep. I bought it at BB so after tax it was 429. However, since I am on a buisness trip and earn perdiem, I have barely been spending money at all. When I get back and file my voucher ill probably make a couple hundred extra dollars. Thats how I justify the cost.

    I am going to be reviewing while using it. I have a new post started on the galaxy note 8 section of AC.

    I told my wife a few minutes ago and she was upset about my impulsive spending. However I told her she can have my ipad 2 and she was quite happy about that. I get what I want she get what she wants. Winwin

    Hmm, I think the Note 10.1 may still be a better bet to pair with the N2. I don't like that protruding camera at all. Or lack of flash, although picture taking with a tab is always kind of clunky.

    Not really gonna be an issue I think. As soon as a decent case comes out ill be getting one. Most likely the case will allow the protruding camera to sit flat and leave a nice even surface.

    I can't see myself walking around taking pictures with a tablet, but having a camera is a must. Especially if you have a tablet with S-Pen functionality.
    Scanning a document with the camera along with a scanning app. Then using the S-Pen to make notes or sign, then send it off as a PDF.

    i love my n2 and note 8...its awesome! battery life has been great so far... 1 day on battery... 4hrs screen on... battery at 47%. I've been unfortunately busy and haven't had as much time as i would like with it. more apps work on multi screen... snote has even more features, the watchon tv app is great! it's a fabulous size.... i have a transformer prime and this is way more functional for my uses.

    Since I got my Note 2, it has replaced my Nexus 7 (which sits in the draw and which replaced iPad) I love it as an all in 1 convergence device (think the Note 2 is the first true convergence device.) Whether at home, work, or even vacations i find 5.5. inches is more than enough for all situations (reading, working, media...) Cant wait for the Note 3.

    I too have a Nexus 7 and when I got my Note 2 my N7 became rather lonely. Recently, I've been using it more (not more than the Note 2!) as I discovered I can use a second login for my favorite word game, to get more games against opponents. Sometimes when I start a new game on each device, the same person shows up, so I tell them that they are also playing me under my other login. Invariably they ask, "how do you do that??". (the game is Wordfeud, btw)

    Funny, I do the same for candy crush. Both games synced to same level but I get 10 lives instead of 5
