I am currently considering the Note 2 as my personal/business device. My current set up is iPhone5 for both business and personal use, and I use the app "Penultimate" on my iPad for taking notes in business meetings. I don't typically use my iPad for much else as my iPhone5 works well for email etc. I also have a Macbook for work (my office is mostly Apple) but I have seen and heard great things about the GN2 and have been underwhelmed by the iPhone5 in comparison to the 4S. I hope to eliminate the use of 2 devices with the Note 2 and really want to know how good it is for business use and specifically it's note taking ability vs. apps available for the iPad w/ stylus. Also, another "hurdle" would be how Apple has monopolized all of my info via iCloud and my iTunes. Is that an easy switch over? Thank you in advance for your help!
