Filed under: Android,Articles,Mobility |


Samsung is one of the top trusted brands of mobile phones in Germany. According to Telecompaper, almost 40% of new smartphone users prefer Samsung over iPhone with only 14% followed by Nokia with roughly 12% share of the mobile market. Following the success of Samsung Galaxy S3 and Samsung Galaxy Note II, Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 was announced recently and is expected to hit the stores both in Germany and other parts of the world this second quarter of 2013. This upcoming smartphone will feature an 8-inch capacitive touch screen. This is a revamp of the previous Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 plus. Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 also boasts a whooping 1.6 GHz Quad-core processor. Phablet (the combination of tablet and phone) is becoming a trend in Germany and other European countries. Galaxy Note 8.0 is more advanced than the usual tablet phones in the market because it features full phone functionality with a sim-card slot. What’s interesting about Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 is the integration of new 4G LTE technology. With an unlimited data subscription from local German carrier Deutsche Telecom, one can expect ultra fast browsing when surfing the web or running third party applications. With a plug-in installed in the web browser, video streaming is definitely speedy. You can watch your favorite music video in YouTube instantly. Since poker is huge in Germany, an enthusiast can stream live poker tournaments happening in the country at partypoker TV from the largest online gaming community partypoker DE without waiting for long buffering time.

When it comes to gaming, this gadget will allow you to play HD games from German developers such as the popular games from Crytek because of its 2 gigabytes of RAM. That’s double the RAM of iPad 4. As long as you maintain a good internet connection, you can play cool games online from partypoker Deutsche such as the 7 Card Stud and No-Limit Texas Hold ‘Em variations of poker. This will definitely give you the chance to join the annual German Poker Tournament in some of the casino sites in Berlin. Poker is definitely huge in the country, and by having a Samsung galaxy Note 8.0, you no longer have to go to actual casinos in Berlin just to play the game. Since it runs the latest Android 4.1.2 Jellybean, you can even install the Android app from the German online poker client.



Aside from gaming, the 5 megapixels camera of Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 is perfect for producing excellent pictures. The only downside is that it doesn’t have a LED flash like the Apple iPad. The device comes with a stylus pen where you can scribble down important notes. For only 549 Euros in Amazon Germany, this phablet is a keeper.
