I never had a problem with speed on my 2100.  It could keep up as fast
as i could type.  The only slowness came from when it tried to read my
handwriting.  But even then it did a better job of it then I did
sometimes.  Usually though, I just typed it, it was simpler and faster.
 And being that my handwriting is so bad, I can't trust it to a standard
paper setting.

I had a dayrunner for years, but always the problem of my handwriting
came up sooner or later no matter how hard I tried.  All of that was
fixed once I got my Newt.

I don't have a iphone or ipad, but I do have a Android tablet, and it
just doesn't replace my Newt.  I do sometimes jot notes in it, but then
import them back to my Newt later on.  All the apps just don't work like
I want.  Not to mention I don't like typing on it.  Yes I know they make
keyboards for Android, but I don't have those and I already have my 2100. :)

Like I said, I just haven't found a good replacment apps.  I am starting
to think Einstein is the way to go.  I need to get the Android version
and give that a spin.  Anyone know if the import/export of data issue
was ever fixed?  Last I knew it was hard to get data in and out of Einstein.
