The Note is not the first iPad competitor to work with a stylus.
The HTC Flyer came out last year with the same ability, but several missteps limited its appeal.
First, it was half the size of the iPad yet cost just as much, and that was without the pen.
Second, there was no slot for the pen in the body of the tablet, making it easy to lose.
The pen also was expensive, costing $80 (Rs 4440) to replace.
