Think I can still get it at far east plaza tonight?
Yeah I hear still got quite a lot of stock around.

Very itchy...gianess at high gear!
You dun say itchy lar, last night SMS for price comparison liao. Most likely buying this weekend is it.

trying to tempt me ah.. it's too big for my liking bah.. or else i would have joined u at mobyshop yesterday already.. haha... shall hold for Galaxy Tab 7.7 to replace my 10.1 next year (let's hope samsung gets it out soon, which is not their speciality)

they should consider having the stylus writting functionality into their tablets too leh, can fight with HTC's flyer anytime!
Yeah, I REALLY hope this is the start of a beautiful relationship between tablet companies and Wacom. Seriously, even after SO MANY YEARS, no other company can fight Wacom's inductive technology for styluses. Other companies have tried but all fail also. Magnetic screens are also good but the parts required is expensive. In the end Wacom still wins.

Tablet + Wacom = Epic win

Thanxs. Me still in old era of phone, now on E72. So want to ask, glass is quite resistent to scratching, so can i presume the fortified glass should be ok without a film protector? I mean for daily use, not go bang or scratch the phone intentionally Me not a fan of SP.
Gorilla Glass is a brand name by a company called Corning. It's a super hardened glass called aluminosilicate (or smthg). Samsung buys and installs Gorilla Glass in most of their flagship phones including Note and Galaxy SII.

Apple does not buy from Corning instead they engineer and manufacture their on aluminosilicate glass in-house (Apple has the tendency to not being too reliant on a single supplier)...

So essentially the glass in iPhone 4/ iPads and SGN/ SGS2 is the same, but from different manufacturer. People who claim iPhone's glass is inferior to Samsung's or vice versa probably got their facts wrong... I have been using my iPad naked and so far does not have a single scratch at all (unless my eyes fool me..). So it's up to your preference and getting SP provides peace of mind to certain ppl.

Sigh..this is childhood all over again. My friends all getting new toys and I'm standing at the sidelines with my parents saying what I have is "good enough, now stop thinking and go do your homework"

Aw this is disappointing. Will be mashing my F5 furiously on the Singtel site.

Also, having read the GSMArena review, I'm not sure what to make of the Yamaha codec. Everyone else says it's bad except for them, and if I'm not wrong, they did include the Galaxy Tab P1000, with the Wolfson DAC, in the comparison:
