    Anybody like the idea of getting something similar to the ipad mini that you can have more storage with?

    I like the idea of having an ipad mini sized tablet with an s-pen. I'm going to wait for reviews then I may pick one up.

    Yeah, I will see how well it performs and for how much. We'll see...

    I would be extremely interested in such a product assuming Android is as fluid as it is on my GS3. I tried a 10.1 Note at the store and it just seemed a little laggy (but it just may be because it was a beat up display unit). And if they improve the screen compared to the 10.1 Note

    I might get one. I'll be needing a new tablet soon. Debating on this or the iPad mini. The 512mb of ram is turning me off on the Mini. It really limits web browsing.

    Seriously I might just get the Note 3 if it's 6.3 inch. It'd be an awesome device, and would pretty much fill in the small tablet need.

    If the specs were high end, I would consider it. If they're just average, probably not. I like the form factor, and with the SPen that would be perfect.

    The format seems just perfect for the S-pen. Lighter and more comfy to hold for extended periods than the 10 inch one, yet a more useful screen size for real productivity than the Note 2/3. With the split window multitasking thing, I could actually use this quite a lot for work. Will be getting one most likely. I just wish they'd design it from a tablet angle and not make it look like just a bloated Note 2...
