Hey there, good to hear from you.
Yeah, I lucked out and manged to get a tablet. Currently I'm keeping it sealed until I know for certain what I'm doing with the set in case it all needs to go back.
Right now I have a small 4" Android tablet - a cheap $50 one I bought around Christmas, and it has the same "Ice Cream Sandwich" OS that the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 seems to have. I guess they name their versions on food (Jelly, Bean, etc.). I'll say my cheap tablet is pretty darn cool for what I do with it - go online wirelessly if I need to look something up while I'm out, or play some cool touch-screen games. Plays media nicely too. Not bad for $50, but a very low-res screen. I've seen the Galaxy Tab 2 in Best Buy, and it blows mine away. Way higher screen resolution, I guess it can shoot 720p video, 3mp camera, WIFI, plus I'm already familiar with Android a bit. I have no experience with IOS though. On the one hand I'd love to open it up and have fun with it. But I'm leaning towards giving it to my girlfriend's sister for Christmas - she has the same $50 tablet I do, and she loves playing games and junk on it. I know she would love this as an upgrade, and that would take care of my Christmas shopping for her this year which saves me money. I'll have to see. That's months away though and I should test to see if it's working at least before it can't be exchanged. I should have 60 days like the tv itself I believe being a Silver member.
You'll have to let us know how you're making out with the set. I'm still learning. I ordered the remote you linked to the other day - I bought it from a seller in Asia on Ebay - $10 and free shipping - looks like the seller sold over 300 of them so far and has great feedback, and when I bought my old Samsung QWERTY remote from an Asian seller everything went fine - it arrived brand new in the retail box.
As you can see I'm currently dealing with a pink tint issue and I'm hoping the replacement set next week won't have that problem. I want to call Samsung and report a couple issues (Game mode not improving lag, AMP custom stuttering and adding soap opera effect in 25.000fps video content and some HDTV channels), but I'm waiting until the replacement arrives because the first thing they're going to do is ask me for my serial number, so I'd rather give them the one for my new set, not the one that's going back.
