|I think Samsung should have thought about its connectivity. . . I don't think it will do well in market- the reason being its connectivity issue.|

|Agree with previous comment. Im just looking around to have 8'' tablet for my online studies, so I can use it during the lunch breake. And it is extremly important to have good internet connection possibility. Im between 2 providers Apple Ipad or Samsung. I was thinking of samsung because of the dual possibility (online study + notes same time). But now im still not sure. Plus I think for that price (basicly on same level with Apple), there shall not be connectivity issues.|
