By your time, 1985, NMT was already so big in Nordic that it was the worlds biggest cellphone network, in fact it was so big that only the Norwegian part of it all by itself was quite likely to be the worlds biggest national cellphone network at the time (in the mid 80ies Norway had more mobile users than the other Nordic countries combined).
NMT 450 replaced the various existing manual mobile phone systems in these countries and was so good that it has just recently been discontinued in Iceland. NMT spread from Nordic to many countries around the world so it is not unlikely that your first phone used NMT450 or NMT900.

Go to the store and test it, its amazing how Tab S drops frames in simple games that can run smoothly on 2011 single core Android devices, Tab S performance is purely benchmark performance.
The disadvantage with iPad performance is that the UI ticks along in its own pace no matter what hardware you have and unless you have downs syndrome you will find that pace annoyingly slow, takes some serious getting used to, for example in the time it takes the keyboard to slide up from the bottom of the display you have time to type 2-3 characters before it becomes responsive and then you have to start all over again since your sentence starts on character number 3 to 4. Unfortunately this is by design and Apple refuse to include options to shorten animation/transition times.

I may come across as sounding biased, but my use of a mobile phone commenced in 1993, before a lot of the current generation of users were even born (but not all! ;-) ).
I made a lot of comparisons and hands-on tests and in the end it came down to either an Apple iPad or the Galaxy Tab S 10.5. I liked the 'squeaky-clean' appearance of the Apple, consistent over the many years of professional use, but the Samsung was unexpectedly easier and, shamelessly -- a lot more fun to use and just play with: it is a very engaging device and highly customisable (so too, is Apple, but not the same degree). I've teamed up the Galaxy Tab S with a Logitech Type-S bluetooth keyboard and the combo is certainly a head turner: close the cover and nobody knows there is a full-size QWERTY keyboard there on which I am writing my book using OfficeSuite Pro. Some suggestions for prospective users: get your hands on one that is in full operating mode (no demo!!) and run your hands all over it. The AMOLED display is superb and cleans very easily (overlays are available if you get annoyed by finger prints and smudges). The SD card slot will take a micro SD up to 128Gb and this is enormously useful if you have a digital camera that can link up by wifi to the Galaxy and transmit its pictures for storage. Go for it!
It is a phone
you can text and call
i have the cellular one and i can do all of these

I really love it had it a month now is good with performance and gaming and even work the only drawback is touch wiz I love the features but touch wiz is clunky but funny worry Nova launcher prime will solve that sooooo is amazing FYI battery life is good as well
venkateshwarlu uppul, 18 Sep 2014Adobe flash player not supportingSamsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5" has no adobe flash player. How can they slide this under the radar? It's a disgrace. Most of videos I watch are AFP.
For those who are interested in using their Tab S as a notebook for school / work, I just bought this Capacitive Stylus from Cosmonaut along with this free app called Fiinote. I must say, it works very well although I still haven't figured out the palm rejection thing (e.g. being able to rest your hand on the surface while writing). But with the build of the Cosmonaut Stylus, you don't really need the palm rejection (for me) since I write with it in a way you do with white board markers. This is because of its wide width which I find very comforting. Anyway, if someone does find a better stylus and app for note-taking, hit me up!
Got mine about a month ago. All I can say is that it's really amazing! When my Apple fan friends saw it they said it's really gorgeous and made them think about getting one instead of the ipad air. So far mine's really fast. Haven't experienced much lag. Although one minor problem that I've encountered is when I'm in a call, it automatically sets it to speaker mode. I don't think it has any handset mode since there isn't any earpiece beside the camera. Anyway I don't really use it for calls and texts that much. Just purely data surfing, school works, and entertainment purposes. Overall, this piece of art is totally worth the money!
