PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "Samsung's recent Android 4.1.2 upgrade for the Galaxy Note 10.1 adds power and flexibility to the company's unique offering of Android multiwindowing features. With this update, the Galaxy Note 10.1 can run up to 16 multiwindow-enabled Android apps at once, Windows/Mac-like, on a single screen. Apps endowed with Samsung's multiwindow technology are usable in three viewing modes: full screen, dual view, and cascade view." There are already some complaining this represents a dangerous fork of Android. I thinks it's a step in the right direction.

10" is hardly a "smaller screen". It's twice the size of Nexus 7. The first thing I thought was: there's too much space to usefully cover in most apps; this can show more than one app at a time, e.g. mail and calendar and notes or weather. Other tablets had tiling before, e.g. Adam. We can hardly fail Samsung for trying to make the device more useful. The idea is right, and however crappy their implementation is you don't have to use it. Maybe Google will do it better in stock.
