Watching one long video, it doesn't seem as slow as others, and they seem to have done a decent job in putting a pretty & functional shell on the OS, so it may be even better with the updated tablet version of Android. The notes seem much more integrated than on most pads - note "linking" is /almost/ up to par with Newton's data sharing (it's not automatic, but it is available to more than one app). I did /not/ see any HWR at all, even tho the display person ran out of things to mention.  

Certainly the best effort I've seen a long time, tho not at all cheap at approximately $800.
