Am hoping that Windows Phone 8 will also incorporate stylus phones . There is room for improvement. The handwriting recognition on some of the Win Mob phones of the past were more quicker and accurate.

Looking at all these comments make me feel that samsung fanboys want to force feed on others what they think is good for us.

And whenever people said something negatives about their phones, they will be defensive.

Dont underestimate this 5 million sales in 2 months for a niche product. Consider:

original iPad = 2 million in first 2 months

original iPhone = 8 million in first year

And the market nowadays is so much more scaleable than back in 2007. A successful product can boost sales so easily in subsequent iterations as long as the manufacturer keeps doing it right.

So long as Android market share keeps growing (which is inevitable), sales of Note are bound to grow in leaps and bounds

Reading all these fanboys comments, give me the feeling that Samsung fanboys start to behave like what Apple fanboys behave last time!

Well done to Samsung.. Yet another great product with the sales to back this up. Some of the cool stuff u can do. Take notes with the S Pen, Experience Air View:, Use Google, Drive with Google Maps Navigation, Capture photos with my voice, Watch movies on the big screen, Read ebooks, Perform engineering work, Play games, Browse the web: display of the Note II allows to even post articles to ZDNet right from my Note. There is so much power and functionality in the Galaxy Note II that you could probably come up with 100 cool things to do with the device.
To the Crapple fanboys consider this… Apple bills itself as an American company. The back of every product notes that it was "Designed by Apple in California." But Apple outsources the production overseas. Companies owe it to shareholders to maximize profits. But Apple has come up with an incredibly complex system to avoid paying its fair share of taxes in the United States. Apple customer service philosophy. takes one of three approaches, all wrong-ignore-it, tell customers why they're wrong, or just get defensive.

I recently went 2 purchase a Samsung refrigerator and it was really really confusing as there were apparently no less than 6 variants of the same model, all with subtle little or no difference and varying by just 1 letter at the end of the model name! I dunno if this is their biz strategy 2 confuse customers!

Galaxy Note 2 is only phone out there with awesome futures.

With Wacom digitizer and Spen, big screen and great battery and tons of brand new futures...

I am sorry guys but best phone now in the market...

If you compare it with another phone or tablet, you are not a smart phone guys, that's it...
