    This is the first 8 inch Samsung tablet from Samsung since the Galaxy Note 8 which I recently retired. I’d rather have this than the 10” s4 tablet that I bought even though it is lower end. Too bad it’s not coming to the USA.

    A bit more than that. Intel is not invested in tablet SoCs anymore, the Z8xxx chips are pretty old by now. Supposedly Celeron and Pentium Silver/Gold replaces it but they're mostly used in very low end Walmart/Best Buy laptops or Chromebooks.

    I'm hoping 10 on ARM will gain more momentum, an 8-in Qualcomm tablet with pen that can dual boot Android and Windows (or at least via XDA developers) would be pretty nice. Battery life should be WAY better than the VTN8.

    The pain from hearing what we know is the truth

    I still remember being very excited when the Dell Venue 8 Pro, eight inch full windows tablet came out. And then the asus vivotab note 8 with EMR. well the direction was clear

    Surely with cherry trail, we'd have amazingly long battery life and good enough performance, everything was going in the direction we thought.

    It would be fine they said.
    It would be okay, they said.

    Oh, and don't forget multiple companies making attempts at dual boot android/windows? Remember when that was a thing before being axed by the big companies?

    What will happen first?

    - ios and android becoming even better to the point windows has almost no advantage on an 8 inch tabet

    OR

    - Andromeda

    OR

    - Milkdromeda

    OR
