    I haven't heard any US distribution announced. I think the first appearance will be in pacific rim countries. The tab a announced may not be released here at all because of the US poor market for any Android tablets. We have heard that the S4 didn't sell all that well and that the new 5se was Samsung's try to see if there is any US market outside of cheap $100 devices or IPads

    Well, four days with the iPad Mini 5 has reinforced the fact that my aging eyes crave more space, especially when reading my magazines (I'm really addicted to magazines - I think they are missing me at Barnes & Noble). The iPM5 is a bit snappier, not enough to really notice on a day to day basis, and I like having something closer to a real sheet of paper in note taking (yes, even after all my moleskin rants - what a waffler).

    Thanks, I live in Japan though. I doubt it's on sale online anywhere yet though there's a YouTube unboxing video by a guy in Thailand. Samsung's Thai and Indonesian websites have it listed but no way to buy. Sammy seems shy to make the device available to everyone.
    Thinking of getting the LTE version.

    You mean the two year old iPad Pro with a better screen, quad speakers, and more RAM than the 2019 Air???:D

    Ok, I've had it!

    Mods, I formally petition to have a "Chronicles of DStrauss" thread permanently stickied to forum, so we can actually follow what bloody tablet he is switching to this week! :mad:

    I challenge even the world's central intelligence agencies to put together a coherent log of which tablets Dale has kept, exchanged or tried again and re-exchanged, what he's planning to use, and what he's currently using on the side. I give up!

    No, he will write down current load-out (including secondary tablets), why he's planning on returning his latest tablet, or if by some miracle he keeps it, how it slots into his load-out and what's bumped out...And it will all be in nice chronological order, so we can all keep our sanity (or what's left of it).

    -Marty out

    ipp11 then? But then it will be too small too for the eyes.

    Then we need to go to ipp12.9.

    I'm sure people with strong hands/arms feel that the ipp12.9 inch is very light like it was the ipp11 so maybe that's the answer.

    But then this will be too small for eyes and it's time for us to face reality- we all just need to tie dog leashes to this baby:
