I suggested this unit to my wife to replace her P9 and her reply was *censored* *censored* *censored* you could get a good phone and an iPad for the price of a Note 9

 

 

But the Ipad would be a negative value not a positive :)

How do you combine that deal? PBtech deal is awesome.

 

 

It is good. I have a credit with VF and a resign bonus so I can't take it unfortunately.

Ummm WTF it launches with Oreo 8.1? How does a phone thats not even released yet launch with a software that came out nearly 9 months ago. Is Samsung and Google's relationship that BAD?

 

 

Welcome to Android. Could be months before Android P is released for the Note 9.

Android P will be released on the Galaxy S10 won't it? Or more correctly, since Samsung is determined to be the Asian Apple, the Galaxy S X. Just like the Gear watch has been renamed the Samsung Watch (Apple Watch) and the smart speaker is the Samsung Home (Apple Homepod or even (gasp) Google Home).

The new Note seems to be a great enterprise tool. Nice Bluetooth features with the S-Pen. The S-Pen is still its defining feature regardless.

I remember S9s were shipped out earlier for those who pre-ordered. Was PB pretty quick as well? Considering ordering one from them.

They state it ships out on the 24th, which if is the case. Will mean some might not get it until after the weekend.

Is that worldwide, or just a New Zealand restriction?
