My Opinion : Finally! Sony managed to chase and even surpass all it's competitor in terms of hardware. They decided to skip S600 processor and went ahead with S800. Not to mentioned the ability to draw on the screen with pencil or pen it just sound good for artist! Now, I would love to see the review how good is the screen as well as is there any press pressure when using pen/pencil to draw.
