Galaxy Note 10.1 UI looks pretty cool

The new Galaxy Note 10.1 with active pen, side-by-side windows for a few core apps with copy-paste, and super note taking, almost makes me wish I was a student again:

Hope it works as smoothly as the video implies.

Now of course it's all pre-rendered, but that's what I call real multitasking ability. And this is also why the stylus is still a great thing. Anyone that thought that the stylus was dead will have to rethink it. Bravo on Samsung for having the balls on bringing back the stylus. Samsung's new Nautre UX is a great evolution of touchwiz. It's more than just a skin or launcher. I love it on my GS3.

It has some resemblance to MS Courier concept..

But the interface is different. It works for few selected apps like browser, media player, S notes etc., But it's a good start. They can probably add other apps to split-screen view and also customize popular 3rd party apps.

Some "reviews" in youtube look decent. Also they have this 4million bounty for devs developing for Note/note 10.1. I believe that the last day is around Sept. There should be some apps optimized for the S Pen.
