We talked about Nvidia's spanking new 7-inch slate and the model behind it just yesterday, only to see that very same slab of industrial design become available the following day...

First I want to say I'm tired of the Nvidia hate that has been going on round the interwebz, I don't know why they hate on Nvidia when I played with Ubuntu only Nvidia had drivers for it. I mean would you rather use ATI cards in your builds? I think not. Nvidia has done nothing to deserve the hate they've been given. Correct me if I'm wrong.

As for the tablet I like it, but I'll wait for the Tegra 5 tablet I heard is coming out next year

I think is quite close to the "perfect" tablet, I wish it is possible to select a more powerful version, and, yep, dat bezels -.-'

I agree on you with the bezels being too big, but its definitely powerful enough.
It has the Tegra 4, the NVIDIA Shield gets about 2700-2800 on Geekbench 3, which is on par with the Note 3 and the Nexus 5.
Though if I remember correctly, its GPU is slightly weaker than the A7's PowerVR G6430 and 800's Adreno 330, but its resolution is 800p, so should powerful enough.

I think it should have 2 GB and a FHD 1080p or 1200p screen.

OK, for that price..no comment at all. That pen use is not better than NOTE series but the price make it nice for casual user that ocasionally needs pen input.

Nice features though even with that pen - slide pen out to pop up your desired app.
Cut selection...etc
I ques there is no palm recognition - the style he is writing in the video is pretty bad for using the pen for longer.

I also use S-pen on my NOTE 8 mainly for navigation through Windows Desktop/Programs that are not touch optimized - on my WIN server via Remote Desktop.

But the price of N8 is somewhere else and many people will casually use this tablet same as more expensive Note series.

I was pretty impressed by Anandtech's benchmarks and review of this. Great tablet for the price, but I imagine development will be a problem for those of us who like the latest and greatest version of Android. I could be wrong, though, given the price.

Impressed. I could use the Directstylus a lot at work or browsing through my pdf's and taking down notes.
