    Awesome! It looks great. For a good while, at BestBuy, I played with one and was quite impressed. It's not too big, by any means. It was very snappy (usually new tech is) and was pretty light. Some day...

    What case is that? I thought a Poetic slim-line but I don't see their symbol?

    Have you tried the Hancom Office software? I've heard it is pretty close to MS Office.

    It's probably too soon, but any thoughts on battery life?

    How do find the Multi-window with 4 options?

    Is the case, very cheap and loving it. Like the Ipad cover.

    Not tried hansom yet

    Battery life so far

    1 hour, 30 mins screen time
    14 hours total with 85% left

    Multi window is great.. Screen is so huge it makes it easily doable.

    Only had yesterday with it but will give it a proper review in the next few days.

    Yeah, it's pretty expensive. However, it's also one of a kind. From my time with it (at BestBuy), it was solid. But, hopefully, in a few months, the price drops a good $150. We'll see...

    Well, yeah, it is one of a kind.

    I'd love to see this at roughly 600$, though, like you're saying. I might be alone, but this just seems overpriced at the place it's at.

    If that is the case, and you find 750$ worth of value, don't let anyone tell you that it is overpriced. Value is subjective.

    Have you run into any popular apps that are not compatible?

    While awesome and I would love to have one, that is in the same range as a used MBP/Air or other nice laptop so I wouldnt pay that much

    How's the new Touchwiz? Do some animations still lag slightly?

    No need to justify your expenditures. You see the value and will make good use of it.

    At this time, my budget won't allow it; probably, in a few months, I will get one, too.

    Enjoy your beast and keep us informed of your experiences.

    I bought this on amazon to test it out. Drawing and reading comics on this is a JOY!

    Far better, zero lag.. I'm using nova on it right now but have been using both. The Internet stock browser is a lot better

    ----------

    Only espn ScoreCenter app.. But it seems there's a way to get it on here

    ----------

    True but ipad 2 was my last full sized tablet I bought so it's been a while since I got my last one

    One thing I have noticed is they have removed the abilty to have lock screen widgets on the 12.2...and just replaced it with lock screen cards that have weather, e-mail and news and social...which is dissapointing to say the least.

    as this is my at home tablet I was going to use the widgets that i have on my phone.
