    God this wait for a new TabletPC is killing me. Returned my Asus EP121 3 weeks ago due to defective fan. I was hoping I could get one of these "early October". If Samsung misses the October 20th release date I'm going to go crazy.

    I preordered my Samsung slate at the Microsoft Store retail store yesterday here in Houston and I received a notice to pickup my slate on 10/13/2011 last night... I also saw a couple selling on ebay.

    In all honesty there's already a million and one applications out there for Windows and although they're not Touch based you'd be trapping yourself into another echo-system. Only a year to go before Windows 8. I'll probably give it a try but won't keep it.


    "...Those, it turns out, will be included under a paid version of the App Player"

    Ahh, there's the catch.

    :( ....

    I have been staring at this auction for over a week now (Not literally every second of course as I have to eat)

    eBay - The UK's Online Marketplace

    I want to click Buy It Now but something is holding me back and I'm usually not like that. Something is screaming 'the fan will annoy the heck out of you'. I suppose I can wait another few days to see what menteleum thinks.

    Plus it's a lot of cash :)

    WOW! I live in Houston too. Do they have it in stock? Or they just shipped preordered units to the local store?

    Does anyone have or know where to find the physical dimensions for the Series 7 slate? I keep seeing '12.5mm thick' in all the reviews, but nothing else (width, height). I've pre-ordered one and since it doesn't come with a case I'd like to make a wooden mockup and start looking for a suitable case I can use when it shows up.

    Also, what are the actual screen dimensions (with and without bezel). I'd also like to start looking for a matte screen protector.

    Thanx.

    John

    It looks like Amazon has officially released it and removed the "preorder". They've also dropped the price by $50 for a couple models. I wonder if any brick and mortar stores have any in stock.

    Keep in mind the Amazon page does still say "Ships in 4-7 weeks."

    Anyone know if this has a keyboard/dock? I'm hating the lack of info.

    Ugh, and more to add to the confusion... the Microsoft Store changed the model number of their tablet from XE700T1A-A05 to XE700T1A-A04 which according to the Samsung press release is the 64gb version. Seeing that my invoice makes no mention of which model number I ordered, I contacted MS about it and they confirm my order was for the XE700T1A-A05.

    Bait and switch? idk

    This is very frustrating.

    @alvarez13,

    Same here. I placed my order for A03 model. I hope it has the dock and keyboard included for $1300. If not, I think it's really easy to return it through Amazon.

    Along with the model number switch the MS Store also included "Keyboard and dock not included" which coincides with the price point of Samsung's press release. 100 more for Windows 7 Pro plus a 100 dollar markup. VERY frustrating. The sales rep assured me I have the 128gb version.

    Amazon is looking more and more like the better deal, since there is no tax for my state.

    Just ordered the A03 from Amazon. Delivery Estimate: November 16, 2011 - November 30, 2011

    Right now the UK site lists the pen as a "digitizer pen". Does anyone know if its pressure sensitive and if it is what level? I am mainly interested in this as an art/3d device first. I think I saw one review saying that it was a "wacom digitizer" but since then I have not seen it mentioned. All the videos I've seen don't seem to show any true pressure sensitivity?
