    There really needs to be a thread for this here, than being mixed in with windows devices.

    The Galaxy Tab S3 is the first major premium Android tablet in a while and it's geared up with flagship-worthy specs.

    Like the Galaxy S7 edge and Galaxy Note 7 before it, the Galaxy Tab S3 is essentially repurposed smartphone parts shoved into a 9.7-inch chassis. And that's not bad at all -- the Snapdragon 820 helped introduce Vulkan API to Galaxy S7 users and it's on the Tab S3, too. Charge those Bluetooth-connected gamepads and get ready to play with your new mobile entertainment system.

    Operating System Android 7.0 Nougat
    Display 9.7-inch Super AMOLED, 2048x1536
    Processor Snapdragon 820 Quad Core 2.15GHz + 1.6GHz
    Storage 32GB (U.S.) Expandable microSD card
    RAM 4GB
    Rear Camera 13MP, Auto-focus, Flash
    Front Camera 5MP
    Connectivity Wi-Fi 802.11ac dual-band, Wi-Fi Direct, USB Type-C 3.1, GPS LTE (optional)
    Charging USB-C
    Battery 6000mAh Fast charging
    Input S Pen 4096-levels pressure sensitivity and tilt detection
    Security One-touch fingerprint sensor
    Dimensions 237.3 x 169 x 6 mm
    Weight 429g (Wi-Fi) 434g (LTE)
    Colors Silver, black

    Samsung just out-penciled the Apple Pencil

    http://mashable.com/2017/02/27/samsung-staedtler-s-pen-pencil-stylus/#t6LdnLmC3Eq3


    It looks more like an answer to the Apple Pencil than any other stylus.

    IMHO, it might be more suited towards the Samsung Tab S3 and Chromebook Plus/Pro? FYI. the Wacom UP-911E/normal Samsung sPen works with the Chromebook Plus.

    I would like to think Samsung is trying to pull their collective marketing head out of their ass and highlighting the art capability of their devices....finally.

    Any word - or rumour - on pricing?

    All the Wacom EMR pens that I have:

    Wacom UP-911E
    Wacom Bamboo Feel
    Wacom Bambo Smart
    Samsung sPen w Eraser
    Samsung sPen from Note Pro etc..
    Fujitsu Lifebook Pen


    ...seem to be working normally, on the Chromebook Plus/Pro.

    However the side buttons don't seem to be detected.

    Whoa, they won't sell many at that price. Android tablets can't compete with iPad prices. Shocker.

    I am inclined to agree. IMHO, $400-$450 might work...?

    IMHO, Samsung releasing the 2016 Tab A 10.1 w sPen for $250 (with $100 discount) was great, and with a regular retail of ~$300 seems about right.

    Oh, so you ended up getting a Chromebook Plus? If so, please do an artist's review! This is still sorely lacking...I'd be very grateful !

    I will poke away at it the next few days.

    My initial impression is it is a very nicely built device. The screen is amazing. Set-up was easy, this is the first time I have ever used a Chromebook, so I am learning as I go.

    Pen observations so far:

    Pen Tilt is not recognized in Art Rage, will test clover paint soon.
    Any EMR pen will work (older ones have terrible off-set).
    I have found that buttons on EMR pens are not recognized so far.
    Android app Performance seems comparable to my Note Pro LTE and Tab A 2016, maybe faster..?

    This device will be for my kids, so I tested Roblox and it seems to run just fine. :)

    Don't know what the Android tablet market is where you live, but here it is almost exclusively operator bundled. Switch to us and you'll get a choice of phone or tablet. Go into an electronics store and no one is looking at Android tablets (but they do look at iPads) except for where the telcos have their setup. Trying to persuade you to sign a ruinous contract for some dirt cheap Chinese hardware. Is Samsung isn't in that segment, no sales.

    Balbutio ergo sum
