Steve Jobs was wrong when he said there should not be a stylus on the tablet. He was half right, that the stylus should not be used for 'navigation' or to 'zoom' into web page. But using a stylus for hand note-taking, is certainly a killer-app for me.
----- Samsung Note -----
I have been impressed by Samsung Note 10.1 (2014) and Samsung Note 12.1 tablets. The reason, I like them is that they come with two amazing Samsung apps 's-note' and 's-planner'.
Samsung's 's-note' puts Microsoft One-Note to shame. I did offer my resume on these forums, so that One-Note can be changed into a killer app. Because I think it is been driven by people who don't use OneNote :-)
Samsung also have their 's-planner'. It is similar to an Outlook calender, but you can make hand-written notes on the calender using the stylus. You can't do that in Outlook calender, as everything is about data-entry on forms.
--- cut and paste ---
One Samsung Android tablet, you can use the tablet to cut & paste into s-note. YOu use a 'lasso' type tool.
----- Samsung Ativ Tab 3 ----
The Samsung Ativ Tab 3 is a much better then some of the other Windows tablet with stylus. The reason, I like it is that it comes with Samsung's 's-note' app. However, I got put off the Samsung Ativ Tab 3, as it too a few seconds for the s-note application to start up compared to the Android version.
----The ASUS VivoTab Note 8 ----
It is an interesting product. But where are the apps to compete with Samsung 's-note' and' s-planner'?
The camera is 2MP, which is pointless, because when you are taking notes you want to take a photos and make note on top of them. It does not have GPS, so you cannot open up Google Maps or use it for Sat-Nav.
