re: Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 Details For U.S. Launch
The end of finger painting. The use of a Wacom digitizer is brilliant. First, that means most common tablet styluses can be used. Have an older Windows Tablet around? The stylus will work with the Galaxy. As for people who complain about the stylus being easily lost, they have other issues and the typical ones who always ask to use your pen, can't ever jot down a note on the run and are the reason pens in banks are chained down. Basically, they are mostly unorganized, have trouble with simple things, hence, they finger paint.
Developers will have a field day. While Windows Tablets centered on the stylus for a long time, they didn't break out of niche markets. While the niche remains, even for something like this Galaxy, it is much bigger now and there is now another market for developers to innovate.
With most tablets, especially the iPad, developers are limited to designing apps to work only with touch. Touch is nice but limited in accuracy. Now, developers have another option and since when are options bad.
Had Apple released an iPad with a stylus, the koolaid drinkers would be out in force proclaiming innovation, invention and originality. Apple would then sue Samsung claiming patent issues.
You know that is true.
