Hey, don't knock baristas, without Rebecca making my ristrettos I might just cease to function completely.

Windows 8 inspired. So much for all the haters eh (yeah it sucks on a desktop or laptop, but not tablets).

It's kinda average on tablets and phones, nothing to make a song and dance over.

And utterly shite on anything else.

Strangely enough, most of the "haters" seem to be saying the same thing you are.

I've owned both Apple and Samsung tablets and found they both have great build quality.

As somebody who's getting on a bit I think a 12" form factor has some merits in terms of a replacement for laptops. It's easy to add an external keyboard and mouse for text-intensive work, and then you can just take it away and read the Sunday paper with a decent text size. These prices are a bit steep though.

Hopefully if Samsung proves the value of this form factor we'll get the usual Android competition mechanism happening to drive down prices in a year or so.

And if the form factor fails maybe they'll be selling them off cheaply (like HP and Blackberry had to - both were bargains at the time if you could get one).

In case anyone is interested you can still get the 64GB Blackberry Playbook for under ninety quid from Morgan Computers.

Re: A plea to Samsung

Yes yes YES!

And not just on the top spec models either!

Just because I want a high res screen does NOT automatically mean I want a bloody nuclear reactor in my lap, containing a top end i7, 24Gig of DDR3 1800 and Dual SSD / HDD and a BluRay writer, costing £800+

I want a modest spec - Hell an AMD A10 would be more than sufficient for my purposes

How long before Microsoft start screaming about Sammy copying their "Tile" interface? Place yer bets Ladies and Gentlemen please. I reckon it'll take 8 weeks so my date is April Fools Day.

I wish to hell those would support Wacom's high-end pens (ie, Cintiq-level with tilt sense etc). But if wishes were horses...
