    Even though I got myself a GS3, i'm really hyped with all the new Windows Phone 8 news and Windows 8 tablets. Here's a teaser from Sammy. Good chance it's the series 5 hybrid PC as pointed out on The Verge. It even has a stylus.

    hmm. I do think Samsung is getting very involved with wp8 and Windows 8. also since you are hyped about wp8. are you getting a s3 wp or something? I have no doubt it's gonna be better than the crap Galaxy note 10.1

    Yeah, wasn't too fond of the GN 10.1. I love gadgets, and as much as I love my GS3, I will indeed get a Windows 8 Tablet, and and the upcoming code named Odyssey WP8 device. I've always wondered why it took MS so long to get this happening, when they already had such a foundation set with Windows PCs. Once we start heading into slate PCs and tablets, this is where MS should really shine. Better late than never.

    For Tablets, I'm open. Leaning more towards Sammy and Surface. I like to do some research before I chose. So far these reviews like the existing Sammy slate.

    Since I'm currently living in NZ. I left USA. I can't get the surface. So I'll just get a Samsung Windows RT device. Since Samsung products are popular here

    I would like to have a tablet that I can put in a dock and use a keyboard and a mouse with it. That would be the best of both worlds for me.

    Firstly this is a forum for WINDOWS PHONE Upcoming & Rumored Devices, not Windows 8 devices, so I believe you posted it in the wrong place.

    Secondly, I'm not very excited about this Samsung tablet. Both Surface and Asus Tablet 810 seem to be better alternatives to me.

    They are meant for fun and for work. Forget the idea of tablet that apple put in consumers brains, that belongs to the past. Microsoft took it further, it's all about choice with no compromise. If you just want it for fun you can buy a WindowsRT tablet, which is more like the ipad, but better as it is compatible with full Office 2013, which is optimized for touch, keyboard&mouth and ink.

    It has a track pad :)
    Some people like to do work on their tablets, not just use them as portable entertainment centers.

    I see, your trying to make a tablet replace your laptop. I've typed a few letters and tried to create a spreadsheet but I didn't care for it. I could do it all faster on my laptop or desktop.

    Take the Surface for example. If you use the type cover, it will be just as fast to do the work you are used to do in your laptop in your tablet, because it really transforms into a laptop in 1 second... so no difference. Same good Office/(insert any other program here) and the great performance of Windows 8.

    Off topic, but if you're running your GS3 stock - how's TouchWiz? I tried it out the other day and really couldn't get the hang of it.

    Seems to me the only Android worth getting is a Nexus.
