    Great way to spend labor day weekend, although it's still charging I've taken some time to install a couple things and play with the S Pen a bit. Really only tried the handwriting recognition with the S note app and it is impressive. The digitizer can be activated simply by removing the pen from its slot, and you can also configure it to automatically open a particular app as well.
    Can't wait to spend some more time with it but I can say the Note is fast. I read the benchmarks but you almost need to experience it first hand to see how that translates to real world use and one thing you notice immediately is the launcher is buttery smooth.
    I will say there is no mistaking the fact that the housing is plastic, but it feels solid and light in the hand and I love the front facing speakers.
    One last thing before I go install Printershare is maybe the most impressive thing of all- Side by side multitasking. Two windows, of sorts, open, active and usable independently... AWESOME!

    Oh, how does it play HD movies? Does it support 1080p HD mkv files?

    From last many days I was thinking to switch this tablet and you have made my mind fixed to switch this tablet. I have heard many rumours about it, it is one of the smartest creation of samsung.

    Great choice I think, there are some great tablets on the market today but the Note offers a combination of the most powerful processor available with the Wacom digitizer and accurate handwriting recognition. Of course if you didn't have a need for the digitizer or the multitasking ability of the Note there are tablets with higher resolution screens and Tegra 3 processors which, although they may not have quite the raw horsepower of the Note, have the luxury of a some great games developed specifically for the Tegra and they are impressive.

    I just got mine. The reviews I read that said it feels cheap are BS IMO. This is my first tablet and i really like it. I hav ethe 32Gb model. It has a memory expansion slot if I ever need more. I don't need a Retina display and I don't like Apple's proprietary business model. Jellybean is supposed to make it even better!

    Congrats and welcome. I think many reviewer simply state "it feels cheap" for anything not made of metal (the majority of devices). This is an easy out and ridiculous statement. Unfortunately that is the state of reviews these days. As long as you are happy with it, that is all that matters.

    I just picked up the Samsung book cover case for it, and this is a very nice case, it compliments the Note 10.1 quite well. In fact, my brother just got a new iPad with a smart cover and the Note easily matches its coolness factor. The Note is designed with a nice balance allowing it to be very light and thin, thinner than the iPad and every bit as comfortable to hold and use.
