    Some Bestbuy Canada stores have the 500T in stock.
    The version they are selling has no SPen

    Surprised as I thought they all came with the pen.

    I take it that there's no keyboard with it either. I looked it up on Best Buy's Canada site and it is indeed there.

    Still nothing on the US site for it.

    I bought the Vivo Tab RT and managed to get Best Buy to price match Staples online for a free keyboard.

    However, I am intrigued by this Samsung tablet and its ability to run stuff other than RT apps. I'm just not sure it's worth an extra $100 with no keyboard. I do have some time to mull it over and return to Vivo Tab RT.

    The Samsung is much larger than the Vivo RT that's the trade off, too.
    In tablet mode the Asus seems the perfect size,
    if I was going to use a keyboard a lot I'd probably go with the Samsung size.

    No keyboards in sight for either tablet here in Canada.
    Asus is supposed to be giving them free but heard its a 6-10 week wait.

    The AT&T version doesn't have an S Pen either. I also found out it did not have the pen because it did not have a digitizer either. Something to look out for if you think you can just pickup a pen later.
