It has a smaller battery than the original? WTF? If it were removable that would be okay but I doubt it would be on a tablet. I guess I'll hold my judgements until I see the runtime of it from fully charged to dead.

It's about time they get a toggle switch "center". Funny thing is I prefer the way Samsung has been doing it, and now iOS, over the way stock Android is doing it now. So kudos to Apple for that. I would like to see Samsung allow the user to customize they're toggles instead of having whatever Samsung thinks is best for us. :-\

Priced is too high. I've found that only Apple can charge the premium price for tablets and actually sell them. Google knew this which is why they released the Nexus 7.

@MatteoRodrigo One of the reasons Android is so popular is because these manufacturers are willing to do some heavy advertising because they CAN differentiate themselves from the rest. Each manufacturer is actually trying to make your life simpler by adding features. Of course that doesn't always work but for the most part it does.

@BrandonJohnigan It still wouldn't save them money since you can currently unlock and root your phone for free and put an AOSP ROM on it for free. Also, why would you want stock Android without being able to root it?

This is good and all but I think what Google should do That's even more important is allow users to download/cache entire states and countries to our devices. That way if we don't have service in certain areas we don't have to rely on our service provider for data service.

Hmmm. Sounds like Corning is being fairly honest. I'm not sure what I would prefer. Not having to have a screen protector sounds very attractive but I would hate for my screen to bust easily if dropped from just a few feet. I would like to try the new technology to see how it holds in the real world.

So Android is becoming more and more like iOS everyday! It's sad because Android is successful in part due to it being so open but manufacturers are dillweeds and like to lock things down. Well, hopefully Google will continue to release Nexus devices so we don't have to deal with this sh!t anymore!

The size question is the exact same case when people argue for an iPad. It allows you to do more than a smaller tablet. Draw more detailed drawings. See more detailed pictures. Tablets and computers serve different functions do that argument is moot.

"It’s quite a luxury item, yet still sold for only $400. But $400 is a high price..." Oxymoron? Eh, whatever. Price always seems you be the biggest factor when it comes to non-Apple stuff. If it were $299 it would have sold like hot cakes but with all that tech inside maybe Samsung couldn't do it.
