No Phone No Deal... I won't be buying this for the holidays... I need better business machines that can multi task and replace old ones... Just another expensive shiny toy...

what!?! i thought it was supposed to have phone functionality... stupid carriers!!!! hopefully they left all the speaker equipment intact so the mod community can reactivate it.

If everybody who was going to buy this decided against it, and wrote letters or talked to store managers and told them the reason why they decided not to buy it, I guarantee you the carriers would change their tune. The chances of that happening are slim, but that's what needs to be done to set them straight on whatever the matter is. Let them take a loss because they think they know what you want/what's best for you.

no way would i want to get this at launch. google has already said that 2.2 isn't optimized for tablets, so you will havea device that will be at most halfway functional until the 3.0 launch early next year. i remember using the archos 5 tablet and having the weirdest issues with apps that were not designed for a large tablet screen and it was a pain in the arse.

No phone capability is not a deal breaker considering it's market niche. Hopefully skype will work. But there is some missed opportunity here in other areas. The ipad currently tops out at 64gb of storage. That does not seem to bother the devoted but I don't like those kinds of limitations in a Netbook / entry-level-notebook priced device. Samsung could have really crapped in Apple's sandbox by having 2 storage card slots and including USB host capability for flashdrives, 2.5" portable hard drives or even usb keyboards. Probably would have cost less than ten bucks at OEM level and would escalate the Android pad into the serious threat category for a number of other platforms...

Been waiting for this but with no phone! Then it's not for me! I guess I will just buy an iphone.... Samsung are a bunch of jack@$$es

No Phone No Deal... Great try, but this is another useless toy like the Ipad. Great for children to surf the net... But definitely not for a business person who wants and needs devices that have multiple functions... Such as computing and phone combined... Too expensive and too short on what it will do out of the box... The CEO of Samsung should be fired and replaced with someone who is thinking of the future needs of business and commuting users...

it does have a phone lol + navigation (without having to buy extra stuff),
and it is fully working, tbh kinda retarded to bring a new device out that isn't fully working and tested.
other than that it does everything other phones do + more and capable to do more, unfortiantly apps etc specialy for the tab are very rare.
