GALAXY Note 8 - the new Phablet on the block | AndroidTapp. Think Galaxy Note 2 with an 8 inch screen. You aren't putting this bad boy in your pocket. The 5.5 inch Note 2 screen is a great compromise that makes it unnecessary for my to carry my Nexus 7 or Galaxy Tab 10.1 all the time. However, an 8 inch tablet with phone capabilities will certainly appeal to many. Of course, do I really want a lineup of choices in the morning that includes a 4.7 inch Galaxy Nexus, a 5.5 inch Galaxy Note 2, a Nexus 7, a Galaxy Note 8 AND a Galaxy Tab 10.1? Of course I do.
