Though there may be some disappointment, but finally Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0, Sony Xperia Tablet Z, Huawei Ascend P2 price have been revealed in Germany. The disappointment will be due to them being priced too high

Several much awaited handsets and tablets across the world that were showcased in the last couple of days are finally being tagged with their prices. Many people in different parts of the world have been waiting to decide their willingness to go for these handsets when they actually know these products prices.

In Germany the prices of several newly announced products during the just concluded Mobile World Congress have been revealed. The products whose prices were revealed come from different companies including Samsung, LG, Sony besides of course Chinese technology major ZTE.

There were a large number of phablets, tablets besides a number of other products that were showcased during the show. Some of the handsets and tabs showcased during the MWC 2013 included Nokia Lumia 720, Lumia 520, ZTE Open, Alcatel One Touch Fire, Nokia 301, Nokia 105, ZTE Grand Memo, ZTE Grand S, LG Optimus L II, Galaxy Note 8, HP Slate 7 besides many others. Though the price of all these products have not been revealed, we have inputs about some of them at least in Germany. I must clearly say that the price of these products in Germany and US will differ, but then we will have a rough idea about them.

The prices of Huawei’s Ascend P2 and Ascend Mate have been revealed in Germany. The two handsets from Chinese tech giant look a lot expensive than we had anticipated. Both are priced at €399 €599 respectively. Mate 6.1 has a larger 6.1-inch display made of IPS+ LCD panel. The display packs a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels at 241-ppi. Huawei has deployed Corning’s Gorilla Glass for ensuring better protection for the device’s screen. Huawei has integrated a 1.5GHz Huawei K3V2 quad core processor onboard the Mate. It is further supported by 2GB RAM, 32GB internal memory, plus microSD slot for expanding storage up to 32GB. Besides it comes with 8 mega pixel camera that reports suggest are of very good quality.

As far as Samsung’s Galaxy Note 8 is concerned, it seems far too pricey to attract many people’s attention. Compared to Apple’s iPad Mini, it is far expensive indeed and will kill interest in this tablet. The tab is priced at a whopping €499 and €599. Another tablet showcased during MWC 2013 Sony Xperia Tablet Z is priced €639.
