According to Mobile Syrup, Samsung’s Galaxy Note 8 could be headed to Canada very soon, as a Best Buy Canada’s listing says that the tablet is “scheduled to arrive in our warehouse on 04/19/2013.”

The retailer’s listing says there is a “Limited Quantity Available”, and it’ll cost $430, which is a bit more expensive than the $399 price tag in the U.S. The tablet launched on a number of outlets in the stateside on April 11, so it is no surprise to see a launch in Canada soon after.

The Galaxy Note 8.0 supports a 1280 × 800 189ppi 8-inch display, a 1.6GHz quad-core Exynos processor, 2GB of RAM, a 5MP rear-facing camera, a 1.3MP front-facing camera and a 4,600 milliamp battery. Software wise, the Galaxy Note 8 is running TouchWiz atop of Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean.

Hopefully we’ll hear an official announcement from Samsung on Canadian availability soon.

    Crazy pricing!

  • It is n5100; but in there is no telephone model in usa. I think there is no 3G model in USA now

  • I was waiting for this one but i am going to get the iPad mini now. I don’t think its worth paying $100 more for this one.
