The Galaxy Note II can detect the stylus as much as a centimeter above its screen, enabling interaction based on stylus proximity and motion rather than touch. Samsung calls this feature Airview. You can use it, for example, to hover over an email and see the message contents displayed in a pop-up window or to preview a portion of a video based on the pen's position in the video timeline. If you're a germophobe and can't stand the idea of touching a touchscreen, then this technology will make perfect sense. If not, you might not see the point of Airview.
