    I'll grouse about the lack of a pen silo - AFTER they confirm it will have a pen...

    Are you referring to the Duo? The promo video showed the lady taking a note on the Duo with the SPX pen...at 1:35.

    Plus if I'm remembering right, the emulator has a section in settings that lists the pen. (I think under the bluetooth devices header there's a subhead for it).

    The fact you can use the pen with both Neo and Duo is a real plus to me.

    That is indeed a plus. Wonder if Samsung will make a Neo competitor? They have the Galaxy Tabs, they used to make Windows slates, their Galaxy Book Flex look nice...

    Samsung will probably make their own version, with a screen that eventually falls off the chassis (with no fix) and a 247Mp camera that has issues with focus. Also colours. Also battery life.

    I will never forget THAT Windows 8 tablet that they made. Also the really expensive Ultrabook that had issues with wireless (also never fixed).

    <<...You have to open the phone to answer a call?..>>

    It can't be any worse than my Note 9, that stubbornly refuses to recognize my finger stroke whenever I try to answer a call...

    Thank you for sharing that. Somehow I never sat through the whole video. *BUT* it only shows the pen on one of the two screens. Forgive me for going all Fox Mulder on you but I have to see both to believe.

    We now return you to your regularly scheduled conspiracy theory....
