    I strongly suspect this one will be the one that the carriers pick up, primarily as a lower cost alternative to the iPad for their customers. Samsung has told us repeatedly that there just isn't a large market for 8 inch Android in the US. Asia is a very different story/market.

    That being said, It seems to be a chicken/egg problem. I haven't seen a compelling device from anybody in that form factor from any manufacturer since Samsung's Tab S2

    Why not just release the one already on sale in the US too? Doesn't sound that complicated to me.

    ok, a feedback after more than a month.

    My SM-P205 is my primary device, my primary phone, my primary PC. I would have loved to can do the same with a windows phone/PC.

    what I miss : windows, nfc (for my banking), fingerprint reader, a flash for photo or sometimes use it as a light.

    I would have loved a 7" bordless version of this device.

    So, Thierryb, you bought an international model and are using it on a US carrier? Is that correct?
    My problem is that I'm on Verizon, and I don't think you can get this with CDMA.

    There's no U.S model because it wasn't released in the U.S, only in select "developing countries." Thierryb is French and lives in France, not the U.S. I too live in Japan and imported mine from the Philippines. My point is that the LTE versions are basically Sim-unlocked, so it's possible to use with different carriers.

    That said, unlike Thierryb, I find myself using the SGo more than this device. I'm still glad I got it, and wish it had more power and longer battery life. Samsung should have made this an iPad competitor, TBH.

    I bought a P205 International model from an E-Bay seller, and I use it in the US on AT&T. It is voice capable, but I only use the LTE for data. My main use-case is note taking in consulting projects. In a pinch, I suppose I could swap in my Galaxy Note 8 sim card if the phone died out on the road.
