Not so much with other tabs---especially at this price point.

BUT!! I found another article that was posting specs on the 970-2 and 970-3.
The 3 had more on board memory, and a few other things but was not vastly different than the 2. After closing the page out I though about bookmarking it for future reference but have been unable to find the article again.
It said the 3 was due out this year, but the release date and price of the unit was forthcoming.
