    I know that this may seem like an odd thing to post on an Apple/Mac forum...but hey...nothing wrong with some diversity! When I see something cool...I like to share.

    This is about the Samsung Galaxy View. Basically it's an 18.4" (1920 x 1080) Android tablet. The wife & I have one...and we almost exclusively use it as a portable TV. We move it with us from one room to another room as we do things...which allows seemless/uninterupted watching of TV shows. Living room...to kitchen...to dining room...to laundry room...to basement...to bedroom...to bathroom...etc.

    What makes it kind of a cool device (IMHO) is:

    - 18.4". Not too small & not too large for 1 or multiple person viewing.
    - Pretty light (just under 6 pounds).
    - Gets 8+ hours of battery life.
    - Has a built in slotted handle on the back for very easy "grab & go" moving from location to location.
    - Has a built in "convertible stand" on the back. The stand pivots in the middle. In position #1...it acts as a stand for table top viewing. In position #2...it acts as a slanted stand for laptop use.

    My main reason for posting is. The 32gig WiFi version is currently on sale for $399.99 at Samsung.com:

    As I mentioned. We mainly use it as a portable TV watching device. But it's really an 18.4" tablet...so it does anything a tablet can do.

    Snap one up if it appeals to you.

    p.s. One special detail I should mention. It does not contain a gyroscope. Thus it's viewable in the horizontal orientation only (no vertical orientation).

    Personally Nick with Samsung problems with cameras, fridges, hard drives .. I will never own anything Samsung again.
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

    Pretty neat Nick. Does it support other Android apps like the Galaxy phones? BTW, I can't imagine why anyone would want to view it in portrait mode.
