re: 10 Best Apps For Samsung Galaxy Notes
Until you actually try to USE a tablet, you might think you don't need a keyboard, stylus, mouse, case, matte-screen cover, or easel.

You may not need ALL of them, depending on your use scenario. But I've found it is a complete ordeal trying to do any sort of work that involves text entry or control of screen features or a text cursor without several of them. And seeing the contents behind the ever-present glare from gloss screens as your wrist become ever-wearier holding the tablet aloft? Forget about it. Gloss screens are the worst feature ever on mobile devices -- yet, of course, only a gloss screen can be cleaned sufficiently in order to enjoy a movie. Screen smearing is a constant problem.

It's a very compromised product class -- fine for casual media consumption -- hopefully in darkness or a very dim light -- but -- without those accessories listed in my first 'graph, a complete headache for doing anything more than posting a quick "Hi!" on Facebook.

I love my tablet for how well it does the tablet thing -- but let's be real, these things are for passive media consumers -- NOT people who actually have to accomplish work with their mobile devices.

If you don't believe me, just go looking for styli, matte screen covers, easels and convertible easel-cases, keyboards and mouse adapters, and various cleaning cloths and (sometimes questionable) cleaning solutions -- you will find an AMAZINGLY broad and deep third party accessories market.
