    This doesn't appear to be a US offering - and it looks a little dated with Android L - the US version is WiFi only with no pen support. Sure looks promising though.

    Well, ain't that special...so we'll be TWO more generations behind the Galaxy and iPhone tribes...better be category defining or it will be another "crash and burn." Seriously, I appreciate where they are trying to differentiate, but how are they ever going to overcome trendy personal phone designs, and the ever present "hatred" of employees who are forced to carry TWO phones...

    I'm not so jaded. ;)

    Capossela really seems quite 'based' in presenting Microsoft's goals (@24:34): it's about creating the unique hardware first and the becoming a 'fad' part, is secondary.



    I actually really like Microsoft's philosophy here.

    So, I bought the Xiaomi Mi Max 6.44" phablet to replace my Nexus 6p which replaced the GN5 that had to go back because of incompatibility issues with my carrier.
    The Mi Max is a high quality smartphone with very narrow bezels and a battery capacity of above 4300amps. Performance wise, Its definitely up there with the best.

    Improvements in OneNote Syncing:

    I can't tell whether the syncing subsystem has been improved; OneNote Mobile is improved (clearly it is better on Android than before); or it's Windows 10, but the handwritten notes I am taking on the Galaxy Note A 10 are already synced to my Surface Book by the time I get back to my desk from the conference room. I am more open than ever to a three device solution, particularly since my Surface Book is (finally) an EXCELLENT laptop, not just an excellent 2-in-1.

    PS - when I left for that meeting, I grabbed the pen next to my TabA and when I got to the conference room noticed it was an ink pen, not my full size Samsung pen - no problem, pulled the stylus out of the TabA and away we went...
