For those who love the Samsung tablet, some new Galaxy Note accessories may make the next incarnation of the device much easier to write on. Along with an upgrade to Android 4.0, the company plans to add more functionality to the S Pen that comes with the Galaxy note.
"Current Galaxy Note owners will surely be happy with the expected upgrades as they’ll be able do more with the handset’s stylus; presumably one of the reasons to buy the Galaxy Note in the first place," GigaOm said. "And if Samsung can market the new S Pen features, it could even sway new buyers away from other devices. That’s important because amidst all of the players in the smartphone industry, the battle for sales and profits is becoming a one-on-one between Samsung and Apple."
GigaOm writer Kevin Tofel said the stylus can offer a lot of benefits, even in the age of touch screens. While it isn't for everyone, he said it can come in handy and it is nice to see a company taking interest in it.
JK Shin, president of IT and mobile communications at Samsung Electronics, said that they are committed to providing new features and offerings with each update. The S Pen as advanced Galaxy Note accessories could be a great move for the tablet.
