Samsung's (SSNLF.PK) Galaxy Note 8.0 might be the most serious rival the iPad Mini (AAPL) has seen thus far. The Note 8.0, which ships in Q2, sports a 1200x800 display, a 1.6GHz. quad-core Exynos CPU, split-screen app viewing support, and (like Note smartphones) an S Pen stylus and several apps built for it. No pricing details for now. IDC estimates Samsung's tablet share grew to 15.1% in Q4, though that's still well behind the 43.6% claimed by the iPad, which continues to offer far more tablet-specific apps than Android tablets.
