Canadian carriers TELUS, Rogers and Bell send word they've today launched the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 with 4G LTE data connectivity. The Note 8 sells for C$579 outright on TELUS — on-contract deals are also available from the carrier's website. Rogers has it for C$499 off-contract, and Bell offers it on a three-year plan for C$349.99 up-front or C$549.95 outright.
The Note 8 is the smaller of Samsung's two Galaxy Note tablets, with an 8-inch 1280x800 resolution display, a 1.6GHz quad-core Exynos CPU and 2GB of RAM. There's also 16GB of storage, microSD expandability and a 5-megapixel rear camera. Naturally, Samsung's S Pen support is included, with a dockable stylus fitting the device's right side.

Will this version have phone capabilities? Posted via Android Central App
There's no voice ability with this model. It may or may not be possible in the future. I haven't heard of anyone getting the AT&T version to work with voice yet. Some curious specs when I checked them out.
Specs under "LTE".
Telus shows both the AWS 1700/2100 Band 4 and the 2600 Band 7.
Rogers only shows the AWS 1700/2100 Band 4.
Bell doesn't show any specific Bands and just says compatible. This is weird because Rogers is using Band 7 2600 and Bell also has the ability to use Band 7. If you are buying one of these I would check the packaging to be sure or frequencies.
