    I am also curious if TPT2 can be charged with standard power and voltage of usb port. I thought it is impossible for x86 architecture.

    It seems that this includes the stylus, 64 GB storage, and 2 GB RAM. The keyboard costs extra NZ $30 or US$20. The price seems reasonable?

    The Dell Latitude 10 (another atom based tab) is chargeable via standard mUSB cable, so I assume it is possible.

    I'm giving up on the TPT2, I don't feel like waiting another month to maybe get it. Previously had the 500T, returned it, but realized it was the best value so I bought another one last night. $599, has the S-pen and digitizer, etc versus what looks like it's going to be $800 plus for an equivalent TPT2 and then you can only buy that goofy keyboard dock. The 500t is glitchy at first, but once you update all the drivers from Samsung it's smooth as butter.

    The Microsoft Store is listing the comparable TPT2 for $699 with pen/digitizer. That's a $100 lift compared to the 500T. I don't know where you got $800 from, even the MSRP for the comparable model is $749. Also, it's very possible the TPT2 will come with standard with GPS as well, another bonus.

    I don't disagree that the keyboard dock is a trade-off though. The launch of these products seems to be nothing but trade-offs. However, my problems with the 500T are two fold. First, it's cheap Samsung plastic. I didn't think this was a knock until I picked it up in the store. Flexing and creaking galore. I have to assume that the TPT2 will have a much better build quality which is worth at least $100 more. Second, 11.6" is just too big. It's absolute smallest size for a proper keyboard dock however, which is why the TPT2 has the smaller, crappier dock.

    The best part about the 500T is that you can, you know, actually purchase one.

    By the way, TPT 2 is on sale now in Australia.
