Samsung seems committed to the stylus and they have recently acquired a 5 percent stake in Wacom. Of course, many will realize who Wacom is, they offer the digital drawing tablets and seem to be 'the name' in that particular industry.
Samsung announced their new Galaxy Note II many were excited to see that massive screen, us included. While the original Note phablet seemed too large originally, it sold extremely well (over 10 million) and the Note II is everything it was and more. We've had a change to enjoy another round of hands-on time with the new Note II from Samsung, so decided to capture some of the new features of that S-Pen stylus.
Samsung has released a new 30 second spot for the incoming tablet, and it's aimed squarely at business professionals, with the company obviously hoping to grab a larger percentage of that market thanks to the Galaxy Note 10.1's included stylus. Indeed, the stylus is essentially the main focus of this advertisement, with our clean-cut business hero using it to collect signatures, draw graphs, and give his boss an impromptu presentation on all that he's accomplished in the last 30 seconds.
Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet. According to a couple of pre-release photos spotted by Tablet Community (no relation), it'll also get a slot for the S-Pen stylus built right into its slate body.

Samsung Galaxy S III is quickly approaching and we all can't wait for its arrival. While we wait today we've been greeted with a few official press photos of Samsung's upcoming accessories for the flagship smartphone.

Papyrus, a long-term project from indie developer Steadfast Innovation. The free app introduced its first beta version today, and you can download it on the Google Play Store. While it's technically possible to use standard finger input in Papyrus, it's specifically designed for Android tablets running 3.0 or later with stylus input options.
Ice Cream Sandwich for the Galaxy Note was going to be a little. Along with the announcement was information about a new "Premium Suite" of apps specifically for the note and its impressive S-Pen stylus. We now have a video from Samsung showing us all what we can expect when the update arrives.

Swedish blogger caught a glimpse of some covered ads prior to Samsung's Mobile World Congress event showing nothing less than the Galaxy Note 10.1, a combination of the ten-inch tablet form factor and Samsung's new pen input hardware and software. There's little to go on at this point beyond the name and a brief, tempting glance at the corner of the device, but there's plenty that can be inferred.
LG has officially revealed the LG Optimus Vu, the company's new flagship for MWC 2012 next week and its stylus-toting challenge to Samsung's Galaxy Note. Based around an iPad-matching 1024 x 768 resolution, 4:3 aspect display, the 5-inch Optimus Vu "phablet" uses a 650 nits IPS LCD panel for better outdoor visibility, and comes with a stylus for annotating documents, drawing sketches and making handwritten notes in LG's Memo app.
