      Unfortunately, I was the only one around at the time, so I was concentrating on keeping the camera in focus and just let the reps drive. They didn't know much about anything other than the quick specs really.

    Looks ugly to me. To each his own.

    Samsung should hire knowledgeable staff to demonstrate their products. Especially at CES.

    32gb card included is kinda kewl. That's a big microsd card. But it's specs seem nearly identical to the Thunderbolt and I suspect the thunderbolt will be on the shelves long before this one hits the shelves.
