Any device that tries to combine two devices into one is asking for trouble, and random people we spoke to here in New York agree.
New Yorkers are a scrappy bunch, always moving fast with no time to dillydally. They do take mobile computing seriously and a few folks spared enough time to tell me exactly what they thought about Samsung's new Galaxy Note device. This wild product sits somewhere between a tablet and a smartphone, with its massive 5.3-inch screen, 4G LTE, and yes, a stylus.
The people I spoke to pulled no punches, telling me either that they could never give up their iPad and iPhone for one hybrid gadget. Others said, heck yeah, a union of Android phone and tablet works perfectly for them. I've actually been challenged to use the Note as my primary mobile communicator for a week. Not sure if I can handle this but I'll let you know how it goes.
