    Default The 8.4 Tablet.

    I think Samsung is trying to hit the sweet spot. I have held 8" tabs and they are a little better than the 7" ones.

    2GB RAM and 16/32 GB of memory, these should last for a while.

    Not to mention that the Recent apps key has been added and the Menu key deleted.

    Now just to get rid of that blasted button in the middle... we can work on the rest later

    This UI does look pretty interesting, I haven't had a chance to dig in yet but hopefully we're seeing a full scale departure from the 2.3 style in favor of some kit kat love.

    Hopefully this is Google pushing Samsung towards the software keys...for future phones

    I am interested to see what pricing will be like. This could be a huge seller for samsung and maybe a GPE? That would be sweet with those specs. Also nice to see it running KitKat out of the box. I see samsung is taking the "Pro" name serious with the specs they put into the tablets.

    I am interested to see how the "new" touchwiz runs and if it still is a resource hog like touchwiz of old. If nothing else, at least they are moving away from the gingerbread look of old.

    Yeah, hopefully they trimmed it down. Even with those specs, TW can make it stutter at times :\

    Google probably has little decision power on Samsung products.

    On screen buttons would probably ruin the beautiful design of the new "magazine ui". My main tablet is a Microsoft Surface and after a year and more of use, I can confidently say on screen buttons would be a detriment to such a ui and other UIs that follow.

    Here's the 60 second mock-up of what it might look like without the changes to the bezel (which would be a 1,000,000% improvement).

    I agree, but those specs seem to be pushing the note 3 pretty well, although the higher res screen on the note may negate that. I guess only time and hands on will tell.

    The only real issue with this tablet so far is the battery size, at only 4800mAh even the retina ipad mini has a larger battery than the 8.4 and it has a smaller lower resolution screen and dual core processor that require less power. Unless Samsung did some drastic optimization, battery life will be poor on this tablet.

    Check out the hands on video over at droid life.... The specs on the display sheet show a 8200 mAh battery. That would be sick but I have a feeling it is a typo.

    I had to return my lg g pad because the battery didn't cut it. That and some screen issues as well. Using a note 8 at the moment but was planning on returning it for a newer 8 incher. I don't really use the s pen. I was hoping this would be the one.

    I would have liked to see a little bit larger batter as well, that said G Pad 8.3 is a 4600mAh if I recall and people are seeing decent battery life.

    Really would like to see what these will be priced at, would not be surprised to see $399 which I feel is a little steep...hoping for $349

    It is 8200 mAh. Just saw a hands on video on YouTube and they mentioned the same size battery. That's awesome
    Edit: The 10.1 has an 8,200 mAh battery, the 8.4 has a 4,800 mAh battery

    The battery in the TabPro 8.4 is 4800mAh, not 8200mAh. It has been stated on virtually every single tech site. If the 8.4 had an 8200mAh battery then you could expect the 12.2 to have a 14000mAh battery yet it only has a 9500mAh battery.

    You're right, the video was a hands on of both the 8.4 and 10.1 I thought it was 8,200 for the 10.1
    But why would it have a 14,000 mAh battery?

    Well if such a small device could hypothetically have such a large battery then it would be only logical that a much larger device (12.2) would have a much larger battery.

    I just watched a hands on video by Marques Brownlee and he stated the TabPro 8.4 has a 8200mAh battery which based on my research is incorrect but he has always been a very reliable/accurate so I am at a crossroads of what to believe. If the 8.4 does indeed have such a large battery then it will surely be my next tablet.
