I know but I read that Helix has been EOLed! My next choice would be the Asus new vivotab but it lacks keyboard *sigh*

Steamboxes! But they're expensive as heck! Though, Bolt wins by looks and features and performance but not price

No Dave, I didn't buy it because it wasn't available in retail over here.
I just wanted to play with it and get a feeling for it and dive into the Windows 8 waters.

Turns out I dodged a bullet because of its slight heft (bezel, thickness, weight), fan noise, and battery life. Besides, I wasn't ready to flush down $1,800 that quick.

The pebbel is mad. I like how they realized they shouldn't alter things too much for fragmentation's sake... but they should've done more for that $249 offering. Its overpriced, no doubt. If they made it thinner, bumped up the battery life (from 6-7 days to 8-9 days) or improved the display... sure thing.

I dig the Matte Black and all... but there's just not enough for me to justify the cost.
I mean its more expensive than a Nexus 7 !

I hope next year they use a display that:
- uses little power (<200mW) = still 7 day battery life
- can refresh at 24fps/50Hz
- can do 8-bit colour
- 400nits brightness/sun-friendly
- capacitive touch gestures
- integration to WP8

Then we'll talk. And $249 would seem acceptable.

Steamboxes are interesting, but at the moment I can't justify the price with my quite expensive desktop PC. Not to talk about me seemingly buying stuff from Steam monthly, and then not playing any of the games.

Liking those new Sony and LG TV's quite a bit.

It seems like my prediction (and many others) of 2014 being the "end of" flagship smartphones controlling the message is already happening. Samsung profit warnings seem to be the first step towards this saturated smartphone market with much more players. Samsung example just can't push GS and Note anymore in China with Huawei and Xiaomi doing as strong as they are with much lower prices.
Smartphones will be falling in the general goods category, like dumb phones before it.

Maybe this whole smart watch tying with their phones is actually being pushed by the likes of Sony, Apple and Samsung to get around that lost revenue and profits in the coming years?

Dude, you are never happy. I bet you complain about same thing next year when your level of acceptance changes I'm right or am I right?
