    Has anyone purchased the new Tab A 10.1 with S Pen. How is the pen? Is the nib thinner like the Note 7 pen?

    I am thinking of one. Looks more like a note 4 pen which is a bit thicker.

    Have you seen one in person? They finally put one on display at our local Best Buy, but the pen was MIA. The sales rep didn't know that it was new, and told me it had been discontinued. She got a bit testy when I corrected her. She probably thought it was the Tab A 9.7.

    Waiting for the 8" version, if it ever arrives. Else, I'll continue with my current Tab A.

    That 10.1 looks great though.

    Just received mine.

    The Spen is pretty much identical to the note 4 Spen including the tip - they just recycled the design. The non tip end has a bit extra to it to help you get it in and out of the tablet but otherwise it is identical.

    Phonearena confirmed a while ago that the note 7 pen tip can be used in a note 4 pen so you should be able to take the tab A 10.1 pen tip out and replace it with a note 7 tip. Just get yourself some note 7 tips from somewhere eg amazon. There is a tip removal tool in the box.

    Can't find any Note 7 tips.
    How do you find the 10.1? Is it fast enough for you? I ordered one to try.

    Thanks for the Bestbuy price info. I ordered one and am in the return window. Will be able to get the price reduction.

    I don't even take out the SPen from the holder. Using a Surface Pen (Wacom) instead.

    This 10.1 looks like a good notetaking replacement. For a notetaker, the active digitizer is a joy to use.

    Considering the Note Pro 12.2 was $750 when launched this is a pretty good deal!
