If that is truly the case - and it does seem an incredibly short life-cycle for a top-end device - then they will probably turn up at a reduced price, as retailers dump their stock in anticipation of the new model.

On the assumption that happens, I would buy one and save some money. Plenty of users here running this tablet successfully.

It could be true (at least in the UK), as when I click "Where to Buy" on the official Samsung Galaxy NotePRO (12.2, Wifi) product page, it says:
Quote:We are sorry, but this product is currently not available from any of our retail partners.

To check stock availability please email us at shop.uk@samsung.com or call Monday - Saturday 9am-6pm 0330 726 7467


I'll probably wait a while - would like to see something like the Tab A but with a 11+ inch screen. Smile

Whatever you do, don't upgrade the Note Pro to version 5.0.2 if you do get it. Bluetooth devices no longer work with 5.0.2 due to a bug in the OS. I'm not sure if this is specific to Samsung's version of 5.0.2, or all devices running 5.0.2 have the problem (I'm assuming it's a Samsung only issue).

It seems like Samsung is really screwing this up.

Personally, I would get 2 of these instead: http://www.amazon.com/Azpen-A1320G-13-3-...C98Y1763KT

Can't seem to find that one on UK Amazon, but there are a couple of similar 13.3 inch tablets:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Hannspree-SN14T7...BKFK49XHXM
Both have unnecessarily large bezels for my liking though.

The HP Pro Slate 12 looks interesting:

In particular:

4:3 aspect ratio and large screen - sounds perfect. Smile

Azpen A1320G 13.3" -
I've had one for a month or 2 and like it a LOT. The big screen is just a killer win, hands down. The viewable area is basically the same as a full A4; or slightly longer + slightly narrower than an 8-1/2 x 11. Not enuf narrower to be any kind of a problem- basically it's like having 3/4" margins on the sides. It's big enuf that I can use it landscape for side-by-side 2 page. It's a little small for that so it only works for simpler scores or songs I know reasonably well already. I generally prefer a 4:3 screen, but having used this, the taller screen is nice when I'm doing annotations because the annotation menus don't cover any of the music page. Another thing I like is that they put very few apps (bloatware) on it so there's not a lot of stuff running, and not a lot of storage space taken up by junk.

There are a couple smaller things I'd change-
- I haven't been able to get a bluetooth mouse to connect (which I use as a foot-pedal, to change pages). Only tried once, maybe it'll work if I put more time into it.
- the power switch is "tall" enuf that it tends to get pushed inside my bag, so it comes out of sleep. So I turn it all the way off, on the way to a gig.
- it uses a propietary charger- not USB. But in another way this is good- I can have a USB mouse plugged in, and still have it charging at the same time. In fact it has 2 USB ports which is also handy.

The one limitation that's an issue for me is that the screen isn't as bright as I'd like for outdoor, full sunlight gigs. It's OK outdoors under shade, but in full sunlight it's marginal. I put a matte non-glare screen protector on it and that's helped. Full sunlight is tough for any tablet but I have a 10" 4:3 Lenovo IdeaTab S2109 that's enough better in full sun, that I use it instead of the Azpen for those gigs.

On balance I'd recommend it unless you're outside in full sun a lot. I actually just bought a 2nd one for a 90-year old friend to use just around his house as a general purpose device- email, skype, web stuff etc. They seem to be well built.

I would strongly recommend to try Mobilesheets (if anybody would be so lucky to get hands) on Netronix 13.3" Electronic Notepad:
- Android OS
- 13.3 inch E-paper display (low power)
- very light device (400g)
- flexible non-glass display (rugged), high contrast, visible under sunlight
- A4 ratio
- touch screen with stylus

Anybody using Mobilesheets in China?

Having a quick search online suggests this hasn't been released yet?

Although the Netronix looks to be an ideal contender for MSP, it has yet to reach production. It could be quite a while, if ever, before it reaches he public.
