    It depends on the resolution...if it's like the current Table A with pen then it's garbage

    Always wanted a dedicated Note tablet. Not sure this is quite it though. Would love a Samsung Note Tab, 7" with S Pen.

    If this is priced right, it could be good.

    Also, I would have preferred the pen to be housed. But, I think Samsung is trying to get more than s pen fans aboard; not a bad compromise.

    The 820 snapdragon isn't the latest but it's still pretty good.

    The resolution is fine.

    My iPad Pro is decent but I would really like a good android tablet. For one thing, you can use a mouse. Also, the Apple pencil is okay but not as smooth as an s pen.

    It's too bad that they aren't bringing out an 8" tablet with these specs. That's probably seen as too comparable to the Note phones.

    I bought a Tab A 10.1" with the S Pen for $279. Granted it doesn't have the amoled display, but it's nice.

    Not bad at all, seems like I should pay attention to Tab A as well. I didn't realize they come with S Pens too.

    They do, but it's not quite the same pen as in the Note 5 and 7. They don't click in and out but they still get the job done.

    My 2014 Note 10.1 is still going strong. Might be something I pick up down the line.

    Yeah, my 2014 Note 10.1 was my favorite tablet. Wish I still had it :( However, the tab S3 looks to be a successor.

    No excuse for running Android Marshmallow in a high-end tablet.

    I'm watching the MWC live feed via Android Central. They've got another tablet that runs Windows. Holy poop! :eek: Galaxy Book.

    Finally something exciting at MWC. I want to see how bulky this thing is. I have a Surface that's bulky to use as a tablet. Galaxy Book looks sleek. Need reviews and to see it in person.

    And pricing will probably limit all of this to just my husband for work. I can hope for hand me downs eventually like how I got my Surface. Or wait for my birthday or something.

    I had been looking for new iPads but with reports of delays and whatnot, I'll be looking at these. Looking is free :D

    If the price is similar to the tab S2 then I'd be interested in this.

    Android still fails in tablets bar a 7" netflix viewer. Drop that and your gonna cry. Kudos to Samsung for putting things in the box unlike Apple tho.

    I had a Tab S2 and the battery was no where as good as iPad.
    I wouldn't buy another Samsung tablet.

    John Lewis have it listed at £599 which is good considering that it comes with the S-pen.

    Good shout

    Think I will get one for media for sure. Wonder how long it will take for the keyboard and covers to be available.
