Does the Dell Duo do handwriting recognition? Does it do it well? Either Windows Journal or Ms OneNote or EverNote?

The capacitive screens on my tablets make you wait a fraction of a second before you dare start writing. The ones with the waacomm (sp?) & magnetic stylus allow you to write instantly and are usually more accurate when you point.

The Duo does do Windows 7 style handwriting recognition, which gives you the option of a pad to write on or the virtual keyboard.However, you are right that the capacitive keyboard is designed for fingers, and handwriting recognition on glass is better done with a stylus. So, I wouldn't recommend it for handwriting input. However, the point of the Duo is that you switch to netbook format when you want to enter text by using the keyboard.
