Pricing Could be 391 Euros
The Galaxy Note 8.0 is reportedly going to retail for 391 Euros, according to Germany's Staples Direct site. That converts to roughly $531 in the U.S., but keep in mind that Samsung devices usually go for more overseas. For example, the Galaxy Note 10.1 upon release was priced at 479 Euros, converting roughly to $650, but when the device hit stateside it retailed at $499. If we assume Samsung will use the same $150 delta, this puts the Galaxy Note 8.0 at around $380. That's a bit high compared to the $329 iPad mini, but Apple's device doesn't offer pen input or the same multitasking prowess. We'll have to see if Samsung will charge a premium or stay closer to the mini's price.
