Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 vs The New Apple iPad

March 9th, 2012

Samsung introduced its Galaxy Note 10.1 — a larger, tablet-version of its 5.3-inch Galaxy Note half-phone, half-tablet “phablet,” complete with S-Pen stylus — at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona in February. It is thin, light and powerful, but it’s also among a growing group of stylus tablets. Like its little sibling, the 5.3-inch Samsung Galaxy Note, the new tablet features a Wacom digitizing tablet interface and stylus. Unlike the smaller notepad, the 10.1 stylus does not slip inside the slate. It’s also kind of fun to use.

In case you want to capture signatures on a tablet a native stylus is definitely a big advantage. Signing with a finger on a tablet changes the signature graph. Long fingernails make it even more challenging. Stylus versions which only emulate the finger provide a better signing experience than signing with the finger itself, but it is still a long way from the quality of a captured signature using a stylus from Wacom or N-trig. More than that, those styluses also provide palm protection while signing and are able to capture not only the signature graph, but also the pressure, which is important for forensic experts in case of a dispute about the signature.
