Handle aside, the [I assume removable] plastic attachment thingamajig also serves as an adjustable stand for the mega-tablet, allowing it to be propped up in various positions for your tablet-computing pleasure. We're also seeing what looks like a microUSB port, a headphone jack, and, yes this is going to hurt, a proprietary charging port.Read More
