1: I want to use it to take notes using a straight up notetaking app or using a pdf presentation/powerpoint to write notes on.
Can I do that with this and is there a pen/stylus that is good enough to do this? I mean I'm obviously not going to be able to use the same thing as the HTC flyer or vision (what ever the name), but I'd like something close to it.
There are such applications available. The stylus I picked up was not working with the pin-tip, but the stub-tip did. Until I lost it. Oh well, got it for a buck out of a clearance bin.
Wasn't too good about recognizing my handwriting, but then I'm not famed for my good penmanship either.
2. How are the cases and actual product holding up to backpacks that are tossed onto soft surfaces like car/truck seats and couches? Or just 1 foot drops from a backpack?
Mine hasn't had a problem, though again, I got a clearance case, not a good one, and I don't have a backpack to use anyway.
I have been close to dropping it a few times, but the worse of those it wasn't even in a case.
edit: ffs sold out. Hopefully it will be on in the next wootoff
You snooze, you lose! Don't worry though, with the rate of the last wootoff, at least a dozen will be offered.
