Samsung Might Be Bringing the Stylus Back

During CES 2012 at the Samsung booth there was a sea of familiar Galaxy devices but one that stood out in particular was the Galaxy Note. In an interview with Laptop Magazine, Samsung's product marketing manager, Ryan Bidan, said that the Galaxy Note isn't classified as a phone or tablet but has a category of it's own. It also takes advantage their "S Pen" stylus (pause for dramatic effect).

We've been pretty clear with the Galaxy Note, that we're creating an innovative new category. And it's a new category around personalized communication. You're able to use the S Pen to really interact with your device in a much more analog way than we've been able to traditionally. It's about getting back to that really tactile and personal communication method. We think there's a huge amount of value in that.

Is Samsung on to something or should we continue to refine our motor control skill with our hands and defeat the stylus naturally? Read on after the break.
