And, I believe, that the Note has both a capacitive and a resistive screen...

Ah, but the Galaxy Tab has a capacitive screen, not a Wacom screen. And no, I have not found a pen i liked. The Galaxy Note OTOH uses a battery-less true stylus which is part of the phone package and hides inside the phone.
