Hi all,

I really tried to get the most out of Samsung Note I, but handwriting was
impossible if you come from a Newton perspective. I just tried the Note II
the other day, but it didn't seem to improve much of the handwriting. I'm
still bugged out by the latency, and mainly by the failure of getting my
handwriting recognized.
However, I hope this product becomes a succes, in order to improve. On a
personal level, I still prefer notetaking on my Newton. Besides the love,
it's still way more efficient.

Au revoir
Laurent Bourrelly
