I have a 1st Gen iPad and an HTC Evo 4G (Android) smart phone. I have used Swype on the Android phone, and although it speeds up text input, it is still not fast enough for note taking. I hooked up an Apple Wireless Keyboard to my iPad and this allows me to take notes faster than I can write. *If I had the 2nd Gen iPad, I might also think about writing my notes on paper and then taking a picture of them. I have tried a digital stylus with the iPad, but wouldn't think seriously about using it for note taking. I saw the online presentation for the Wacom Inkling. Until they provide Bluetooth connectivity, or real-time input into the PC, having to copy stored drawings (or images of text) is prohibitive. *Being able to type quickly from a smart device, I can use email to take notes and then publish them to my WordPress site(s). You can even use "categories" to organize the notes and that way use one site but have an RSS feed for each category. **If Android had a standard for connecting Bluetooth keyboards, then my Evo would be great for taking notes.
