    The 8.4 is the only one that sort of interests me.

    My local BB store was suppose to have them on display for preview by now but that hasn't happened.

    Having an iPad, I would just be interested in the larger S tablet. I had the latest retinaMini but returned it in favor of the larger ipad instead. I had the 1st gen Mini and the newer one with the better resolution wasn't doing much for me to tell the truth.

    The 10.5 S is technically lighter than ipad air (465g) vs 469g. So it edges out ipad air technically as the lightest full sized tablet!!!.

    Way to go! This is the first android tablet to be a serious contender to air. Have to wait for battery life verdict though.

    Is there any news of new 8" Galaxy Note tablet?
    I'd be more interested in that.

    They look pretty nice to me. Can't wait to see the full reviews of the 8.4 tablet.

    10.5s is probably my next tablet, but I will wait half a year - I hope that samsung will release note with oled display of same size with stylus. Ipad 3 is still running strong, but is starting to annoy me with lags, especially when browsing.:D

    Definitely the 8.4 once the LTE version comes out. Hopefully, I can get it from Samsung/Best Buy instead of through a carrier. Or even better, a GPE version. I'm so tired of being dependent on updates from AT&T. Still waiting on KitKat for my Note 8.0.

    Will existing Note Pro and a Tab Pro users get the updated Touchwiz on the Tab S?

    The current Note 10.1 has nearly identical specs to the 10.5 S they just released. I have the 10.1 - it has a higher pixel density (same resolution but a slightly smaller screen) and still looks pretty darn good, same amount of RAM, same storage options, higher battery capacity (2x more on my Note 10.1 from what I saw).

    I would have jumped on this if it weren't for the storage limitation. The rest of the specs especially for the 8.4 sound utterly ridiculous, in a good way.

    I don't understand Samsung not matching Apple in storage when they make their own chips.

    Expandable storage is no excuse, because Android limits a lot how much you can put there.

    Because you can toss in a 128GB card if you want.

    And Samsung does it best to undo that limitation put by Google.

    Can you install 1GB games on the card?

    Don't know. Is 32GB enough or do you need more? Some games allow the data to be on SD.

    Yes you can ...


    Both Samsung & HTC have allowed moving apps to SD outside of the stock guideline.

    "some" games. "data". That says it all.

    I have a 64GB iPad 1. I'm not going to spend big bucks on a tablet with less than 128GB built-in.

    The NotePRO 64GB does not have LTE and the top LTE NotePRO has only 32GB (and costs about the same). This means one should not waste their money in either of them.

    So, If I were to get a NotePRO today, it would be a 32GB WiFi (as I know from my Z10 that 16GB is only enough for the first couple weeks). But it's too much money for something without cellular. So, I buy nothing. The cellular option seems overpriced.

    ----------

    I think that depends if you're lucky and the app allows it.

    From early reviews, the Super Amoled displays are stunning with wide viewing angles.

    Hopefully, they will release a Note version with these specs.

    With what specs? As I noted before, in comparing the specs on my 2014 Note 10.1 the only difference I really see is the size of the screen and the screen technology. The 2014 Note 10.1 looks to have the same CPU, same amount of RAM.

    Here's a comparison of the 2. It doesn't seem entirely accurate as it says the Note 10.1 doesn't have Micro SD support which I know it has since I have a card in mine right now. http://www.samsung.com/us/compare/#category/N0000397/products/SM-T800NZWAXAR,SM-P6000ZWYXAR

    ----------

    Samsung has a Galaxy Tab S line and the Galaxy Note line. Pick one. Unless you're implying they somehow merge the 2.

    I am not picking. I'm waiting.


    NotePRO > TabPRO
    Note > Tab

    Tab S > Tab PRO > Tab

    so it is logical to also have

    Note S > Tab S

    Note S > NotePRO > Note


    And the 12" S models are still missing.
