I kind of did. It belongs to my family's doctor who works with writing pads and table charts on daily basis. So of course people like him are trained on stylus from Medical schools, while most of Starbuck Brigades on this board don't.
Hey, how many of you are ready to admit that your first smart phone was iPhone and never touch or try PDA before? Remember how BB junkies refused to let go of keypads for touchscreen?
Just think of it as a 5-inch Galaxy phone and not a shrunken Tab. All the good stuff are there; fast web browsing, all necessary apps come out of the box, including WhatsApp, SimSimi, BlueSquare and what have you. Phone calls can be done with a speaker and no need to pick it up to your ear. No free bluetooth headset in the box but shops will throw you one free here. Front and back camera ith auto focus on the back one. No SD slot thugh. And the stylus are really work as they advertised. So far I only find it useful for photo editing app. Might be more soon.
(Did I mentioned 80% of Asian men carry man-bag now?)
greg30721 said size will the the issue. I said price. ฿18900 for a top-spec Galaxy phone, Sii. ฿19000 for iPad 2 but scalpers and gray importers will sell you one for ฿17000 before haggling. The Note is ฿22000.
Especially when you don't have cheap imports to help move units while gray-market import iPad come flooding in from Hong Kong and Mainland on weekly basis.
They said 40% of iProducts sold in the U.S. are being packed in suitcases, carried by contraband mules, flew to Hong Kong and put on shelves all over Far East from Beijing to Jakarta within two days. I stated to believe that.
