Our office is working on apps for mobile and pads. If you didn't want to talk about the OS, then why did you put that into your post?
As to the handwriting, we know there are very few pads with the non-cap screens.
In fact, there may be only one today. So let's drag it out for a look?
The Samsung Galaxy Note at http://www.samsung.com/global/microsite/galaxynote/note/index.html?type=find
Sorry if I upset you but I had hopes to read you redo your post.
I can also address the resistive screen wear as we authored PalmOS apps and now with more than a decade of in the field use I'm sure this is of no interest to you?
