    For me the expandable memory option is a key feature.

    We appear to be wrapping up.

    Bidan telling us there are two "experience zones" for everyone to play with the tablets

    Thanks for tuning in, everyone!
  • SongNotSung 6/13/2014 12:02:24 AM
    Preloaded with content= less space for our stuff
  • Kent German 6/13/2014 12:03:00 AM
    @SongNotSung: I hear you. Samsung likes to add lots of content. Or bloatware, some might say.
  • D@$h 6/13/2014 12:03:18 AM
    Lol samsung is just too good in copying , apple already did call answer on all devise some few days ago
  • Kent German 6/13/2014 12:03:44 AM
    @D@$h: Actually, Samsung's feature works over a SIM card. Apple's feature is just through Wi-Fi.
  • jdliten8 6/13/2014 12:04:01 AM
    Way too expensive I think. I was hoping for a Note tablet S :P This was to me just a review of all the features current Samsung tablets have, and then a few features thrown in to add "newness"
  • Kent German 6/13/2014 12:06:08 AM
  • BiffBlanston 6/13/2014 12:06:44 AM
    I wonder when they will linger more fully over the specs and design rather than the partnerships
  • Kent German 6/13/2014 12:08:46 AM
    Thanks for joining us! Come back next Wednesday when we'll be live blogging press events from Amazon and T-Mobile.
  • Kent German 6/13/2014 12:09:59 AM
