The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is now available in the UK, but only at the Samsung Experience Store at Westfield Stratford City in London, for the moment. That’s just for now, since Samsung’s press release says the other retail channels will be used to sell the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean tablet.
There’s even better news for those opting to purchase it from the Experience Store starting with April 15 (for a limited time), as they’ll get over £60 worth of pre-loaded content on the tablet, including a £20 voucher for the Samsung Learning Hub, a subscription the The Times, an AVG security solution, 50GB of Dropbox for two years, a couple of games, plus some other goodies. It’s pretty strange that the content only comes pre-loaded starting April 15, with the tablet available now, but Samsung probably has a reason for that.
As for pricing and version, Trusted Reviews has spoken to an employee of the Samsung Experience Store and has found out that only the Wi-Fi version is currently in stock, costing £339.
If you’re from the UK, do you plan on buying a Samsung Galaxy Note 8?
