Which tablet or App best for drawing/markup?

by almunro / November 10, 2012 2:06 PM PST

I want to buy a tablet to help with the work i do. I currently need to survey an area and annotate it by drawing shapes and lines, but also add numbers, symbols and text. Im after a tablet that would have access to a app that would allow me to do this.

With most handwriting recogition apps, when you write anything, its put onto a line at the top of the page like a book. I want to be able to write anywhere on the screen and have that number stay there.

Im looking at the Galaxy Note 10.1 due to its nice stylus and wacom technology, but wasnt sure if there was something better out there. I need palm rejection also.

Any advice would be appreciated.
