Where have you been able to get the Samsung Note? I've been waiting for that to come out for over a year! I heard that it wasn't due to be released until November 15th!

Subject: [NTLK] Awesome Einstein Device

Hi folks,

I have not written anything in a while thanks to that thing called 'job'.

But yesterday I found this awesome device, the Samsung Galaxy Note. It's a 5" screen, touch screen phone. The size is perfect: much bigger than a phone, but still fits into the pockets of blue jeans. The screen is very bright and has an extreme ontrast thanks to its OLED technology.

But best of all, it has a stylus! A true pen! Yay!

So what's a developer to do? Of course, I put Einstein on it before even downloading Skype (priorities, man, priorities). It runs quite well! Thanks to a relatively fast processor, I get a performance of 950 loops. But more importantly, thanks to the dual core, pen input is simply fantastic! My first quick handwriting was recognized fine, much different from the Galaxy Tab that has no pen and no second core.

Whenever I have a bit spare time, I will see if I can get the network emulation running as well... .
