    $649 for an open box warranty replacement, still wrapped in plastic, 512. I added a square trade warranty for $65. I backed the next dock 2 on kickstarter and I'm going to try the combo as a primary machine whenever the dock ships sometime in the fall.

    Okay, now I need a case. I'd prefer it to hold a few cards, but not have a front flap. Does anyone have a good one they can recommend that doesn't have magnets that throw off the digitizer?

    Samsung usually makes a good case with some added functionality. Haven't they done so for the 9?

    So, I just ordered the Galaxy Tab A Plus with LTE from this Samsung authorized vendor in the Philippines, hoping to have it in a couple of weeks.
    It was just half the price of the iPad mini, couldn't justify plunking that much for the mini when the Tab has a better value proposition for my use case. Will report back when I get it.

    Not to worry, it's just the beta release. A bunch of people are paying a whole lot of money for entry into the program so they're sure to do a good job of testing. Give them a year or two to discover bugs and manufacturing issues, then Samsung might have a perfected release version for the rest of us. :newpalm:

    The best part is that some people pulled off part of the screen because they thought it was just a protective layer. Turns out it kind of was! :D

    That's what happens when people go searching for complex answers to simple questions. Whoever asked them to defy physics when all we asked for was the elimination of bezels or the smart bezels that'll enable an 8" display on a 6"+ body.
