Deal: £284 Samsung Galaxy Note 8in tablet

You can get the Samsung Galaxy Note 8in tablet from Tesco for £284, that's a £20 saving off its suggested retail price, a discount that ends tonight. The offer also comes with free deliver and 304 Clubcard points that are worth up to four times their face value.

The device appears to be a tablet version of the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 smartphone without telephony capabilities but with a much bigger screen. It's worth mentioning that the latter is around £80 more expensive which may well be attractive to those looking for a nimbler but more capable alternative.

As expected you get an 8in 1,280 x 800 pixel display, the S-Pen stylus, a quad-core Samsung Exynos 4412 system-on-chip clocked at 1.6GHz, 2GB of RAM, 16GB onboard storage, a microSD card slot, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean with TouchWiz, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, a microUSB port, a front-facing camera and a rear 5-megapixel one.

Samsung says that it can last up to 27 hours (possibly as an audio player). Check out our review of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 here and find out how engineers at the Korean company managed to include some nifty features like Air View.

Desire worked at ITProPortal right at the beginning and was instrumental in turning it into the leading publication we all know and love today. He then moved on to be the Editor of TechRadarPro - a position he still holds - and has recently been reunited with ITProPortal since Future Publishing's acquisition of Net Communities.
