    Has anyone in this forum upgraded from a Galaxy Tab 2 to a Galaxy Note 2 10.1?

    What made it worth while to upgrade?

    What major feature made you want to upgrade to a Galaxy Note 2 tablet?

    I went from an Acer A500 to the 10.1 Note for the pen. Worth it.

    The Note has the multi-view so you can run 2 apps at once on the screen, and the note taking abilities. Those are the major reasons.

    If you are happy with your current tablet, no need to run out and upgrade.

    Out of interest how is note taking different?
    Are you able to do more than write down some notes?

    The best way to determine wether the Note 10.1 is for you is to try and get some hands on time with it. Although there are some floating window solutions for Android they pale in comparison with the implemention of multitasking on the Jelly Bean sporting Note. The side by side multitasking has been improved with the ability to resize the windows, but it is the cascade view that has impressed me the most. The ability to have many open, resizable and pinable windows, with the ability to bring any to full screen and back with the tap of a button, much like Microsoft Windows. I can accomplish many things on my Note 10.1 that are simply too tedious to do on my other Android tablets, but I should point out that this functionality really lends itself to what I do, as does the stylus.
