    That makes so much more sense. Makes the future of a Galaxy Book 3 cloudier.

    OTOH it makes a 8cx Surface go even more if a possibility. Interesting what Nadella said about the MS Samsung partnership. Another nail in the coffin for the idea of there ever being a surface phone

    <<...I could just imagine explaining to you all why I was getting a new Go...>>

    OK; so the way I see this, you tried to stage an "unfortunate accident" for your Go and you were foiled by a smart policeman who didn't buy your subterfuge...

    I'm right, aren't I...???

    That coffin has so many nails pounded in that the lid is splitting.

    Why? He could have easily put the tyres on it. Or maybe the SG is much bigger than a phone.

    Saw that part of the unpacked event and a short part of the video showing the internals included the processor marked 8cx, so that appears to be right. Assuming a position I never take (of an optimist) - the fact this is an ultrathin laptop, and Microsoft was so prominent at the event, maybe there is still hope for the Surface Go 8xc tablet. Otherwise, why not just simply update the Galaxy Book 2 into a powerhouse WOA design leader?

    :thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    I hate those too and carry one all the time now for the same reason - besides, I don't have a device with Microsoft Care so I'd be SOL after the bomb squad...

    If the claimed battery life (23 hours!) is real, the new Book S might do well. It also has 8GB RAM which eliminates one of my biggest issues with the Book 2.

    The weight is also great, and coupled with the instant on /sleep of WOS devices and LTE, it may find a niche with high mobility business types.

    I'm still mystified why they chose this form factor instead of them using the 8CX to release a Galaxy Book 3 or or even a Galaxy Book Pro. Maybe it's still coming?

    PS: Samsung did mention this morning the new notebook 9 pro 13 is the best selling version of their PC notebooks yet. Perhaps that's why they went with this form factor?

    PPS: the colors on the new note 10 are some of the most attractive I've see in a phone, enough so that I'd actually not want to put a case on it.

    But the Book S is a non-detachable/non-convertible clamshell (with no stylus input).

    How could that appeal to the N9P crowd at all? :confused:

    I think they meant notebooks generally.
