  1. Word!! lol
    Can’t wait to get one in my hands. Wonder if there will be a ‘display’ pen to test with it. Would blow if they were like, ‘It works really good with this electronic pen, specifically designed for use with the Flyer. You can’t test it out though its 80 bucks extra.’

  2. I’d like to see phandroid develop a tablet database like they have for the phones, shouldn’t be too hard since the basic infrastructure has already been designed/built.

  3. Lame. Except for the pen that’s pretty sweet.

  4.  I preordered that on day one.  They better have one for me come Sunday.

  5. Pass.  Galaxy Tab 10.1 only a couple weeks later!  I was almost sold on this thing with all the initial advertising, but pound for pound I don’t think it’s worth it.  Screen’s too small for me, price way too high (considering it’s 7″ and the pen isn’t even included!), and specs have already been beat by tablets already out there!  Sense/Scribe is nice, but that’s about it.

    1. Don’t want a 10″ tablet.  However, I am rooting very much for the Tab 10.1.  Somebody needs to step up to show that Honeycomb can be adopted by the masses like Android with some solid hardware design and reasonable prices.  Whatever the 7″ Flyer II is called, I will buy that and this is going to my mom.  She won’t care if it’s a single core.  She’ll just be happy she can read the text unlike her Hero and it will still be portable enough to carry around.  I already mentioned getting her a 10″ tablet and she wanted nothing to do with it because she won’t be able to carry it around easily at work.
