    Thank you!

    So in practice in the hand it will feel unwieldly?

    And on a desk will it wobble/feel odd to write at 8.9mm above?

    I'm trying to get a rough sense

    Frankly, no- 9 mm will feel totally fine, IMO. I think that concern is way over stated, ergonomically speaking.

    Is it cutting edge thin? Totally not. Is it adequately thin? Yes, IMO. Will it feel like writing on paper? No. Does it have a Wacom pen that works great? Yes.

    Is this out in Europe yet?

    I read it will be available in Asia and the UK, with no mention of Europe yet, which seems odd.

    Hoping it's EMR

    I mean it's Samsung, it's gotta be EMR right?

    Not like we can put batteries in or charge up a toothpick style stylus

    Well an Acer Concept 9D potential buyer could instead buy a fleet of ipad mini's and samsung tab A 8.0's.

    And then fling them at his enemies when they encroach upon his art lair cave.

    Honestly,I don’t think so, but we’ve been spoiled by thin tablets. My guess is that it’ll depend on the size of your hands. Also, the narrow profile will make up for thickness. Aesthetically, it’ll look outdated next to the paper thin tablets like the mini. Still it’s a $300 tablet and that alone mutes every complaint against it.

    If the ipad mini [pen was magnetic or I get used to a pen attachment method, I don't think I'd be looking at the samsung tab 8 at all.

    But maybe I'll miss the toothpick EMR goodness.

    It’s the S pen, so no doubt it’s EMR.

    Presumably the thickness will also make it less liable to bending like tin foil.

    Another reason I decided to live with the 8.9mm thickness of the Tab A plus is that despite the 6mm of the mini, one still needs a case or at least a loop to attach that long pencil and that will bring it to the size of the Tab A.
