The Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 is rumored to have an 8-inch 1280×800 display and it will also likely use a quad-core 1.6GHz Exynos processor though not the Exynos Octa that Samsung debuted at CES.

Samsung will also likely introduce some new S-Pen apps to go along with Android 4.2 or Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, and it should also have 16GB or 32GB of storage, 2GB of RAM, a microSD card slot, a 4600 mAh battery and a HSPA+ radio for data.

All of that makes for an exciting tablet for the first half of 2013.

    One Android tablet maker making strides to offer quality Android tablets at budget prices is Ainol Electronics – which has previously won runner-up for “Best Tablet of the Year” at CES, and this month has introduced the Novo Quad Core Series of Android tablets– including the Novo 7 Venus which launched this week — with one U.S. reseller – a site called TabletSprint offering this new model for $149 —

    The Novo 7 Venus compares and to the Nexus 7 tablet but for considerably less – matching key features, including a Quad Core processor, a high resolution multi-touch 1280×800 IPS screen, 16GB memory, a front camera, Android O/S and Google Play Store preinstalled — while also offering a number of features the Nexus 7 doesn’t – including a 2-megapixel rear camera, a MicroSD memory card slot, an HDMI 1080p port to download and watch movies directly from a tablet on a large screen TV and also project & play video games on to a big screen; plus more ways to connect to the internet, including Ethernet as well as 3G/4G Wireless connection through its USB port with a 3G/4G USB adapter.

    The Novo Hero II also launched earlier this month – a full size, 10 inch Android tablet that packs in most of the same features, including a quad core processor and 1280×800 IPS screen, and innovative features, including 4K HDMI Digital Output – Plus 32GB memory and a strong 8,000 mAh battery — all for less than $250 at TabletSprint.

    In February, the Novo 9 Spark is also expected to be released, which will feature a Quad Core processor along with a 9.7 inch 2048×1536 (Retina) screen – along with a powerful 10,000 mAh battery, 4K Digital HDMI, and a 5 Megapixel Rear Camera with AF and Flash for about $270.

    It should be interesting to see how the new Novo Quad Core Series fares in 2013 as this company gains more presence in the tablet market.

    I don’t see how you could have left out the eight-inch Archos 80 Platinum. Basically a quad-core CPU iPad Mini alternative for just $199. Also the Archos 97 Platinum, quad-core with Retina for just $249.
