User Reviews 2 The tablet's weight, mentioning it's not the lightest option available. The HTC Scribe pen as an optional stylus, expressing its usefulness for sketching or signing contracts but notes a slight lag in responsiveness. The review showcases HTC Sense's customization options, including widgets and a redesigned taskbar.
However, the major concern highlighted in the review is the tablet's high price. At $699 with a 2-year contract or $849 without, its competitiveness, especially compared to other tablets on the market.

An additional accessory, the pen, which, despite feeling somewhat flimsy, offers valuable features like a tutorial on various pen types and the ability to take screenshots directly on the tablet. The handwriting recognition software for the pen is praised for its effectiveness.
