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.

Some apps which never got adapted to proper work at small, medium and large may. Hard to impossible to force any app-dev to do right. Not only when it comes to screen size but also to standard UI concepts like not using a dark font on a dark blackground, not write text in all upper-case and not annoy.

What matters is most apps using newer Android API's do, its easy to handle different form factors in your app and the number of major apps doing it right are improving.
