Note Taking on Playbook??
I was wondering how effective is note-taking on the Playbook? I'm a college student and typing/saving notes would be so much easier, but I don't want to carry around my laptop all day long. Would the Playbook be a lot easier to take notes during lectures? I like the small tablet size and would prefer that over a laptop, but how helpful is the Playbook when it comes to typing or using a stylus to write them?

I'm a dental student and i have 15 courses. i can only say the playbook has increased my productivity since getting it back in october.
If the prof had not uploaded lecture notes and intended to do it after lecture later, i would take notes on my playbook in Word-to-go. When the notes get uploaded and printed, i transcribed them later. If there will be no lecture notes, i find it better to take notes on the pb vs writing on loose sheets because i lose things all the time.
I make spelling mistakes once in a while due to the touch keyboard and i find pressing the spacebar is not the most effective sometimes and i get words stuck together. It is nowhere as effective as a laptop keyboard but i make do by using short forms and abbreviations. And you can always edit your notes once you're at a laptop.
I highly recommend it if you own a beast of a laptop that you don't want to lug to school. Or you can stick to the old fashion pen and paper method.
Not to mention great to have around when you just want to look up something quick or use it to kill time.

i use the pb for all my note taking now, in fact i now use it more than pen and paper.
if you have the option to bridge, the memo pad is outstanding. i take notes with the pb, and if out away from the office, the notes are right there on my bb phone for reference and updating from any where. i use this at meetings, briefs, and when giving classes.
with mProductive on my phone i am able to keep all memos listed together depending on what they are in reference to. the pb has made me dang near paperless.
notesmartly is a good app, pricey, but the audio, picture, text and video ability help with in depth notes with visual and audio memory aids. i use this alot as well for work.
keep experementing, and you will find what works for you.

So i got a keyboard. Well actually I had to get 2. Guess what, the cheapest keyboard works better. The first one was the Hip Street lost the bluetooth connection all the time. So I returned it at Best Buy. The second one, I found it on Ebay and come from China. It's all silicone so you can pour water on it and.... still works !
So I got it for 39.99 $ on Ebay and I would rate it 8\10
Hip street 99.99 $ at Best Buy and rate it Fail.
In conclusion if you need to take a lot of notes i still think that a regular keyboard is easier and faster.Running on BB 9900 188.8.131.525 pack 2406 For Rogers Canada.
