What a Joke!!!!. There might be takers for the screen estate that it has to offer, may be professional ones. or who knows it could even be a norm in coming years ( Remember the orginal galaxy note series – everyone at that time said noone is going to buy it). But the company could have a done a lot better with the pricing (around the price that could challenge the upcoming ipad pro).


Foolish thinking……
