    Nice specs. Looks quite similar to their tablet though.

    It's got a stylus that you will never use. Looking at the software, do any Galaxy users here make use of the supplied bloatware?

    IMO Samsung pre-installed apps are generally well chosen and I find myself using the majority of them, although here and there I have found an alternative that was better. Some are excellent value, such as Polaris Office, at this point I think Samsung is the only brand that has a fully fledged office suite pre-installed. There will of course always be some that you will never use, but if I had to choose between having the bloatware or nothing at all, I would certainly go for the former. The rest is unfortunately also personal preference. If for instance you don't like Touchwiz, that could be an issue. I happen to like it.

    You would look kinda silly with a 10" tab stuck to your ear.

    I tried that once at a mobile phone outlet with a dummy, obviously just testing out the practicalities.

    I was wondering what all the commotion around me was. Until they told me that if I were to use a proper one it would only be for video calling (i.e. using speaker phone).

    i actually like the stylus... I currently have the HTC Flyer and i use the pen daily, it has replaced my notebook. considering that the Flyer does not have a lot of apps that support the Pen, i think samsungs apps are ok, from what i've seen on the video. I am also learning to draw. so yeah, i'd say the stylus will be nice.

    the stylus is useful and that is why the galaxy note is selling well. writing on the screen using a finger can be pretty unpleasant. so the stylus will be pretty handy.

    Totally pointless and indistinguishable from their Tab 10.1 apart from the silly stylus. Try harder.
