Good old E-merica

- +

One of the first things you notice when looking at anything computer-related in the US is that it is probably less expensive there than where you come from. The second thing you notice is that you can order nearly anything — and if you pay a little extra, can have one delivered in a couple of days, even faster if you pay a little more. All of those "we can't ship this product to your address" messages also vanish. The world of online ordering becomes completely open to you. 

I immediately ordered a new case with a keyboard for my new tablet and a new 64GB MicroSD, because for some reason the 120GB one in my phone died immediately after I landed on US soil. Luckily all it had on it was my music. The ease, variety and low cost of average consumer products are a real eye opener. I saw, for example, a new Mercedes Benz advertised for US$35,000 (about 1 million baht). I suspect my bag will come back heavier than when it arrived.

Since it has just arrived, some quick feedback on the Logitech case for the Galaxy Tab 2 10.5. It is solid, comes with a nice keyboard and a strong magnet connection. Pairing was quick and easy, and with a solid cover it works very well on my lap. Bluetooth connectivity seems stable. The unit is recharged using a standard USB connection. All in all, it seems to be a perfect fit for the tablet. Now I guess I have no excuse to not finish my book.
