Does this unit comes with keyboard dock and s pen?

And what's the difference between this model, XE500T1C-A04US, and XE500T1C-A01US?

Afaik this model doesn't come with the keyboard or dock, nor can I find them online in Canada yet. (one major us retailer has the dock
Osted) The a04us comes with the dock. Not sure about the pen.

Just picked up this device from another store. No keyboard dock and no s-pen. I've tried both the pen from my think pad tablet and my x220t and it looks like it does not have a digitizer. :(

Another forum suggested that the x series pen works. Mine may be dead. I don't have the computer here to verify.

In that video, the guy uses a Lenovo X60T pen, and it works on the digitizer, although I can't believe some of the models in are shipping without an S Pen! That's the whole reason I'm excited for this, I can get a full Windows 8 x86 tablet, with a pen that I can actually use to take notes (I want to test the responsiveness, but so far the delay seems to be minimal enough that it can actually be used as a paper replacement).

In the video the tablet is the US version that comes with a s-pen. I have now tried another pen from an x220t and a pen from a hp touchsmart. Both of which did not work with this unit. The pens that I buy to replace the x220t pens are sku 45831 which is an x60 pen. Even though I have read in other forums that people have talked to Samsung reps who claim there is a digitizer in this version, I do not believe there is. Very disappointed in Samsung.

Just spent 20 minutes of the phone with Samsung support. After finally convincing them that there was no s pen in my unit (they even got me to download the manual to show me where the s pen should be) he finally came back with only the one specific s pen will work this unit....which of course is not true as evidenced in the youtube video (above). I'm wondering if we are missing some driver to allow usage of the digitizer or if there is actually different hardware between the canadian and american versions. I'm no contemplating taking it back and buying an american one with an s pen and keyboard. Samsung this is ridiculous!

I put in a complaint to the BBB. The Samsung Canada page clearly misleads you into thinking this model has the S pen. You click on the link for XE500T1C-A01CA and up pops the specs for XE500T1C. Then you click on the find retailers and it shows 2 retailers selling XE500T1C-A01CA. Awesome job at making me spend $699 on the same tablet everyone else is charging $599 for when I'm thinking I'm getting a pen and digitizer! I did call Samsung and complain and they confirmed it didn't have a pen or digitizer and that I should call the US Samsung and confirm their specs with them or something. That was all I could stomach to listen to.

Thanks for everyone's reply back. I got this unit from another retailer, and it does NOT come with keyboard dock or s pen. It doesn't even have the slot for the s pen as you've seen in the image online from Samsung website. Very disappointed in this model compare to the US version as they've got keyboard and s pen for $749 USD.

I have talked to a Samsung Rep and also emailed Samsung. Both times I have been told there is a digitizer in the unit and I need to buy their s-pen. I was even given a link to where I could buy it in Canada. Not even the reps know what's going on. I suspect there will be a lot of returns on this product which is too bad. It's a really great tablet with amazing battery life. If only it came as advertised. Apparently the keyboard dock doesn't have a battery in it which is something else that was advertised (but you can't get that in Canada anyways).

That is the exact model and it clearly shows the spen as a feature and the picture in the gallery shows it in the tablet.
Funny Samsung thinks it is ok to charge $100 more in Canada for less functionality then the US version but advertises it as having the spen. I think retailers are going to be getting lots of returns, especially when you will be able to get a iconia W510 with keyboard dock/extended battery for $749.99. It doesn't have a digitizer but neither does this.

The Lenovo in the above showcase looks better with keyboard/extended battery for only $599 if the description is true. That beats the Asus Vivotab RT 32GB since it is the Atom processor (x86) and more storage.

*update  - The page linked above is down. Maybe Samsung is fixing the information.

I bought the US version which came with the keyboard and pen. In my opinion, at a minimum Samsung should ship all versions with the S-Pen. This turns an oversized tablet into a wonderful device. With a keyboard and the pen, it's a very versatile setup.

No comment on the LTE inclusion; I'd imagine that would make the tablet a decent on-the-go device.
