      Answer

      Yes, It can easily be removed. I remove mine when traveling. Here is how you do it. Open the stand at the top by closing it at the bottom in other words, put the stand in the position as if you were going to lay the View in your lap. Look down at where it connects to the view. You will see 2 sliver pins ressessed in the plastic. They will have a hole in the pins for the purpose of removing the stand. Take a long thin philips screwdriver and insert it into the hole. The pin will only go in one direction so slide the pin either left or right and the stand will detach from the device. You will feel the spring resist. Do this on both sides to remove the stand. To put the stand back on, you do not need any tools, gently press the stand to the back of the device and you will here the pins snap back into their holes. You can remove the back in less then 5 seconds. I have done this many times with mine and have even demonstrated it to the Samsung Rep.

            Answer

            I am a senior and love it. Easy to use, easy to see. Some apps do not expand to fill the entire, very large screen, but I am very happy with it. Replaces my first generation ipad, which was thoroughly enjoyed and worked to death. I do, however, use a stylus for accuracy since I hate smudges left on the screen from touching (and the occasional sticky ice cream fingers) but the on-screen keyboard keys are large enough so that I type with accuracy.

                Yes. It is a micro USB, but they made adapters to convert to full size USB, and cables. I have connected to my PC to download movies to the unit.

                    Yes, there is a micro SD card slot on the back of the device. You need to slide down a small door on the back panel to access it. It will support up to 128gb of additional memory.

                        It's better to use screen protector because it's a big touch screen without case for protection. It could easily damaged
