    $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
