Video game consoles have always struggled to keep up with rapid pace of innovation set forth by PCs, and more recently, mobile devices. In the last generation, the PlayStation 3 in particular was bound by proprietary processing technology and a rigid operating system that made software and new features arduous and costly to produce.
Google's Nexus smartphones have been the holy grail for die-hard Android fans since the original Nexus One was released almost four years ago. With quick software updates and minimal carrier involvement, users were able to truly experience Android the way Google intended. These devices never really sold well, at least compared to other smartphones from Samsung, HTC, and Apple, but that was never really the goal. The Nexus phones exist to proudly waive the Google flag, carrying with them a raw, brand new, and mostly untouched, version of the mobile operating system.
Stylus-equipped devices have become more and more uncommon over the last decade or so, but Samsung is still pushing the aged input method to new smartphones and tablets with its Note line of products. While many of us are completely content with just using our fingers, there are still those out there that enjoy hand-writing and casually drawing—and for that audience, the new Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 - 2014 Edition tablet hopes to deliver a great combination of built-in stylus app support, solid hardware, and a trusty Wacom digitizer.
