I thought the multi-windows thing for the Note II would be cool but with an 8" tablet it would become truly useful. Glad to see Samsung doing new things with both phones and tablets. That and the price at $400 is not terrible. I was expecting something in the $600 range.
My rig - I7-4770K, ASUS Z87-A Mobo, 16 GB Corsair Ram, AMD 7990 GPU, CoolIT AiO Cooler, NZXT H630
It sounds good... I would much prefer this over a useless iPad mini. It sounds like someone can get this to control their entertainment/TV center similar to a nexus7 on the google fiber network which is cool. Does this have NFC or .11ac wifi? 2 big factors for me for a device meant for home with no cellular voice radio.
I went looking around for specs and didnt see anything about the wireless but I would assume that it is atleast N wireless and has NFC. Who knows though.
it definitely has .11N which would be sad if they didn't go with at least dual-band N, and seeing as the S4 has .11ac I would expect this would too and would make it stand out against other tablets. Granted very few people have AC routers but I am one of those few and love my Asus router but I am sad that I don't have a single device yet that uses the standard.
That's also what I figured. Samsung is very good about even different models that they try to keep the features very close to each other and if the believe this will be money maker then im sure it will resemble the S4 with those specs. I am curious to see this one though.
