There would be ZERO chance I would drop $1000 on this thing. In my opinion they are setting it up to fail.

IMO, these tablet going to carriers with contract is just an "epic fail" move. They should be selling this at like bestbuy or Target for like $299 ~ $399 with Wi-Fi and 3G. It's easy for GSM owners to just swap SIM card for 3G connectivity, but I am not sure about how CDMA users will work without their contracts. Moreover, US version does NOT include phone calling ability is lame. Then why is samsung even thinking to contracts these with Carriers!? I guess the most likely scenario is for me to buy in Asia with phone call, Video call, Wi-Fi, 3G (unlocked) all-in-one so I can use it here.... Samsung made a bad move for the US consumers imo.
