Just can't wait to get this tab. I'm an engineering student and have waited for a device like this forever! This tab will help me get rid of hundreds of pieces of paper wastes, and hundreds of pages of journal articles, and thick notebooks that I have to carry. This tablet is really one of a kind and what this tablet is capable of can't be replaced by any other tablets, including ipad.

I love this tablet. What a shame that it doesn't include a 1920 X 1080 screen resolution and superAMOLED. This is a very good Tablet. I'm in love with the Design of this Slate =)

But sure, they could have waited 2 more months, released it with exynos 5 and full HD, that would have been a smarter choice.

The performance seems good on this, with the curent resolution.

And S-pen makes it the best tablet for me, at this point.
Surface pro, wont be on the shelves for a while, expect it to land late q1 or early q2 next year, that is long from now.
The only thing we can hope for is an october release by samsung for a Win 8 RT tablet equipped with S-pen. And maybe that is eactly why they release this now, and didnt wait to put Exynos 5 in it.
But I dont want to have to wait that long. If only they had made this a 7.7 amoled version, than I could have gotten it now, and then gotten another one by christmas.

Why oh why didnt they wait for Exynos 5, we've already waited to long, what would another 2 months be.
Imagine LTE support, more power efficient CPU/GPU and more power when you need it.
Will there be an Exynos 5 equipped version, for LTE or will there be a snapdragon version? Its just a bit too confusing for consumers... they should have waited.

The resolution, well, then they could have made it full HD without loosing in performance.. and on a device like this higher resolution is to be preferred. My HP TM2 has 1280x800 resolution, and its ok, it even has lower DPI count, but still, for a creative-device touching up photos an such.. SD insted of micro SD, USB insted of 30 pin, HDMI out insted of 30 pin, and a charger port insted of USB-charging, that is on my wishlist.

Will I buy this? Likely, since Surface pro is a long wait and stylus equipped Win8 RT tablets probably will also be some wait.
But I still wish samsung had put some more focus on the creative part, and used ports and resolution for those users.

The screen resolution is garbage. Tablet overall is unimpressive. Not big on tablets anyway, no need when my Galaxy SIII is the size of a brick. Hopefully in the next few years phone technology will get better and something more exiting will come out.
