Here’s how you can draw a portrait with the S Pen on the Samsung Galaxy Note in a couple of minutes
Here’s one more reason why you should regret that the Samsung Galaxy Note is not initially planned for a release stateside - drawing. You might remember that the 5.3-inch kingsize smartphone flaunts a dual-core chip, but tucked neatly in its slim body is the S-Pen, a capacitive stylus which does make a difference. If you can use it properly, that is, and that’s exactly what this Samsung employee demoes in the video below, casually sketching a portrait in just a couple of minutes on the Galaxy Note.

Notice the plentiful options in the drawing app, the way you can change the thickness and colors of the pen input. "Technology alone is not enough. It's technology married with liberal arts, married with the humanities, that yields us the result that makes our heart sing," a man once said. You’ve probably heard that Steve Jobs quote, which he uttered in response to a Bill Gates’ call for more engineers. It seems that Samsung has heard it as well, don’t you think?

watching that clip made me fall in love with the phone (mini tablet)....it makes perfect sense because it brings extras to the table..a functional stylus, and more...how many phones or even tablets can do that? a few of there.....
it wont replace your main phone ...no way, its big....but as a 2nd phone, its going to be fantastic and might even replace it.....

I've held onto my Droid X since Spring of last year, mostly because I haven't felt that there was enough of an improvement over it from recent releases. However, this and the fabled "Nexus Prime" are the only ones that might steal me away finally. Sammy don't F us!

hmmm i've seen videos of people doing portraits on an iPhone with their fingers and looking 1000x times better than that... so what's the fuss about a stupid pencil!? that's so 90's...
