Let's see what the Nexus 8 brings to the table. The Galaxy S Tab is competitive on price. If they could do something to lower price even slightly on cellular versions, even more so.

My thoughts exactly. If the next Nexus device doesn't hold up, I will get the 8.4. I prefer the pure Google but these two devices are impressive.

Competitive on price? Competitive with what, a car?

Kvoth says:

Also, these tablets well be outdated in 4-6 months when the NEXT tab s series is released with incremental improvements. At least nexii are on a yearly (out even two yearly) release cycle.

Wtf snapdragon 800 what year is this 2012? Snapdragon 805 or bust.

hkklife says:

What a staggering disappointment! No MicroUSB 3.0, no Qi wireless charging, still gimped by only 16GB of internal storage, too much bloatware and a choice of either an underpowered Exynos or the aging Snapdragon 800 in the overpriced LTE variants.

These should have had a LOT more to differentiate them from the existing Tab Pro models.

mathiasjk says:

The snapdragon 800 aren't even a year old and it still got more than enough power to spare.

This kind of comment right here is the problem whats crazy is the snapdragon s4 pro can still provide good performance
Posted from my Nexus 7 2013 or Samsung galaxy S5

MasterElwood says:

Not with that resolution. Also: why give Sony the advantage? Z2 HAS 801...

I hope they actually release the 32gb version instead of announcing it and never selling it like they did with Tab Pro 8.4.

I'll wait and see what comes out of Google I/O. Perhaps a HTC / Nexus tablet as a great multimedia device with front facing stereo Boomsound speakers.

coolqf says:

It's the type of tablet that you buy for bragging rights or you like to say that you have the latest, OR only plan on having the tablet for less than 2 years. It comes with year old CPUs... If you already have a tablet, best just to wait until next year, when the 64bit CPUs come out.

RaiderWill says:

Wait until the 64-Bit CPu's come out?
You can not do that..
The *128-Bit* CPu's are penciled in for early 2016.. best wait until then to buy.. you don't want to get stuck with just 64-Bits do you..? and, truth be told.. framework for the **256-Bit** CPu's is right on the heels of the 128-Bit prototypes.. So hang on just a wee bit longer..

Havekk says:

I see what you did there lol

Clyde_Frog says:

Aside from the extra 1GB of RAM I can't really see much of a difference from the Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1, just aesthetics.

Havekk says:

That's cause you haven't seen the screen in person...

worknman says:

The screen on my Tab Pro 8.4 is friggin' fantastic. I'm sure these are better, but I'm not gonna go look at them :P

The SPCS Guy says:

Shit, something is definitely wrong. This costs WAY less than my GN3! Which is $703.99. I am still paying on it.

Joe Petty says:

I work at Best Buy Mobile and the Samsung guy came in with them last night to install them in their Samsung area of the store. I got a good deal of time hands on with these things and ill tell u they are incredibly THIN. They look almost like a giant S5, same styling. They are really smooth, and a look really nice. And that display is GORGEOUS. Theres this wierd button on the back of it tho, and i couldnt figure out what it was, they Samsung rep didnt know either. Im very impressed. The 8" one is the one i want, in chocolate and gold. Theyre nice.

MasterElwood says:

I want EVERY screen in the world to be Super AMOLED!

Have a S5, N3, and GG2 Neo with SA. Its a real shock to use a N7 or a PC monitor when you are used to gorgeous colors and real blacks.

once you go black - you'll never go back!
(That´s what she said)
