I knew it was coming but only after I spent 5 hundred dollars on the 32gig tablet and the 60 dollar keyboard (on sale). Now I will have to look at the specs and see if it will be worth upgrading the old one. I travel a lot and need a tablet that will give me 3g USB connection so I hope they will do right with worldwide drivers for the USB modems I carry. it looks very tempting.
