Welps heres to hoping I can find a mobile companion that can digitize and have all the ports I need. I ordered the venue 10 pro with keyboard bundle for 460 (After taxes and including pen). You have to buy the pen separately for another 36$. From their website the pen requires a AAA battery which I found interesting, not the usual AAAA. I like the fact that this has a microHDMI port, microSD card slot, and a USB port. I hate relying on OTG cables!!! I will post photos when I get my unit! The Encore 2 write was nice, but the resolution when reading papers (research publications) was getting on my nerves so I decided this would fit the bill with full HD resolution. Lets hope this fits the bill for a mobile companion!
