Galaxy Note 10.1 killer feature caught on video

by: Bogdan PetrovanAugust 6, 2012

[Updated] Jonne from Androidsuomi reached out to tell us that the device in the video does support pressure detection and it was actually the Photoshop Mobile app that did not support the feature.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 officially launched today, after a long series of fake starts and contradicting rumors.

Featuring a mighty quad-core Exynos 4 processor and 2GB of RAM, the Galaxy Note 10.1 is a powerful machine, but it’s not the spec sheet that sets it apart from any other tablet on the market. The slate’s defining and most distinctive feature is the digitizer that accompanies it, which, with the right apps, can serve as an excellent productivity [...]

Best Android apps for your Samsung Galaxy Note’s S Pen

by: Paul NuñalJuly 4, 2012

The Samsung Galaxy Note, with its huge 5.3-inch HD Super AMOLED touchscreen and innovative S Pen, has catapulted its way to success and becoming the world’s first phablet/phoneblet.

With the responsive and accurate movement of the S Pen, users can do a lot more things than just pointing and clicking buttons.  In fact, we found the S Pen so powerful that it can provide new ways to capture and create ideas. With the introduction of new applications that are tailor-made for the S Pen, or can put it to really great use, the Galaxy Note truly becomes more than just a smartphone.

Here are some of the best Android apps that take advantage of the Galaxy Note’s superior [...]

Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 changed to include slot for S-Pen

by: Gary SimsMay 23, 2012

When the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 was previewed at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, it raised a few eyebrows in that  it is not only a 10.1 inch tablet with a stylus (the S-Pen) but that Samsung forgot to put a slot in the chassis to hold the pen when it isn’t being used! Meanwhile, we found out that the tablet we’ve seen at MWC was actually a temporary design that Samsung whipped up in a hurry in order to be able to show something newsworthy at the show.

Now according to visitors at a Samsung event in Germany, the redesigned Note 10.1 includes a slot for the S-Pen. However there is one “little” problem. To squeeze the S-Pen into the side [...]

Steve Jobs proven wrong? The stylus is making a comeback, fueled by Draw Something and other stylus-friendly apps

by: AdrianMarch 30, 2012

“If you see a stylus, they blew it”. One of the most famous quotes of the recent years in the technology world came from Steve Jobs in 2010 and seemed to define the direction in which tablets and smartphones should move forward.

Two years later, though, a Bloomberg report confirms what I for one have been saying for a long time -the stylus is a great, fun tool to use with your smartphone or tablet of choice and, given the right app, right stylus, and right device, it can become popular again.

Well, the devices are there (the Samsung Galaxy Note is just one of the numerous Android-based smartphones that has a nice enough screen to beautifully support stylus [...]

Samsung Announces An Android Phone/Tablet Hybrid

by: Aerol BibatSeptember 12, 2011

Samsung’s been busy this week. Everyone knew about the release of the long-awaited Galaxy S II smartphone for the US market. The big surprise of this week was something else: an Android smartphone/tablet with a stylus called the Galaxy Note.

Looking at it, the device’s big attraction for consumers is the large 5.3-inch HD display. Using Samsung’s Super AMOLED technology and having a 1280 x 800 resolution, it’s pretty impressive. But it does make the phone a bit huge – which sets it beyond the normal smartphone category.

Which is correct since Samsung is classifying the Galaxy Note as a “Smart Mobile Device” with [...]

Panasonic Toughbook Android Tablet In The Works

by: Aerol BibatJune 17, 2011

When you think of tablets, you think of flimsy paper-thin electronic devices that you can break in half with your bare hands. They’re not exactly the sort of thing you would bring to anywhere remotely dangerous. However, that can be a bit of a problem when you’re a jet-set traveler. Lord knows how many situations in which your tablet may suddenly be broken: a rambunctious child or a slip on the pavement can turn your $500 tablet into so much spare parts. Well, Panasonic is going to solve your worries then.

Being the developers of the Toughbook line of rugged laptops, the Japanese company is lining their sights at an opening in the otherwise crowded tablet [...]

Diotek Korea provides handwriting recognition for Android

by: James TromansMarch 27, 2009

In recent news, Korean firm Diotek has allegedly revealed some impressive handwriting recognition software for the HTC G1 and Android powered devices. It is not all new, however, since DioPen has been around for Windows Mobile for some time now. Nevertheless, we thought it best we investigate this new piece of software. The application is able to recognise both English and Korean handwriting, which is probably what we would expect from a Korean based company working on an OS primarily used by English speaking folk. There isn’t much more information floating around, and it doesn’t help that their site is in Flash, making online translation virtually impossible. Fortunately, I found a [...]
