PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Over the years, one thing has been very hard to grasp for some people: the fact that people want smartphones with 4.0"+ screens. These 'some people' seem to believe that because Apple chose a 3.5" display, any display size that isn't 3.5" is wrong. Keep that in mind when you read Samsung's latest little communiqué: the Korean giant has sold (not shipped, sold) more than 5 million Galaxy Notes. Which has a 5.3" screen.

Samsung have made no bones, right from the start, that they were going to market this puppy to women. Handbag-sized, with a pen to write with - in a lot of ways it's much more of a successor to Palm devices and other organisers, and around the same size.

Unfortunately Samsung screwed that up, they only designed the handwriting system for right-handed people and it fails horribly for left-handed people like myself. There is a setting in the options for choosing which hand is the dominant one, but it only changes the offset of the pen a little, the API or the handwriting system doesn't actually honour the setting at all.

I did e-mail them about it, doesn't look like they're planning to do anything about it.

Ouch, that's a pity!
I've seen some root apps to calibrate it yourself, but I understand one could be vary of rooting the device.
