    yes.....from November 16......but alot can change in a month behind the scenes. It still concerns me greatly that the official store site for the tablet doesn't mention the port at all and has a pic without it. Its quite feasible that the decision to remove the port was made in the past two months and they just grabed an old demo model for November 16 without having a recent USB-C less model ready to demo. I hope I'm wrong on this.....but I'm just curious as to why they would remove the port. Even if the Thunderbolt 3 part somehow posed some difficulty...the could have still left it as a plain generic USB-C port.

    Any news on upgraded Wacom pen/digitizer? I seems as only Samsung care to equip their device with tilt and rotation support

    Good. So Samsung has a new catch up competitor, they will not leave their Wacom integration behind. I can get on tilt pen here, from pre-owned devices market. An open-box Galaxy Book quotes 500$

    What if they made the keyboard Bluetooth like the EVE V and the ZBOOK. I'd like that

    I'd like to see both the folio style keyboard, and a bluetooth-enabled clamshell keyboard (like the Brydge keyboard for the Surface Pro).

    I just hope the specs and pricing stays the same as well as minimum 4 hours of battery life. Seeing the Zbook clearly out of my budget range, switch 7BE is my only option, at least for now
