much of the discussion about this important issue is getting lost amongst the rave reviews of the Venue 8 Pro. Since this issue is a dealbreaker/dealmaker for many wanting an 8" formfactor device you canthrowon a beltclip with full portability and full Windows on it, I thought it'd be best to try and consolidate everyone's experiences. As for mines... ....we cant expect a full Wacom experience, but the continued inking alphanumerics once we've stopped writing one of them is a huge issue. For example, in writing the word Dell, our hands NATURALLY transition from the bottom left corner of the D to the beginning next letter, which is usually the line in the "e." Well, once the stylus is lifted from the D, it continues to ink in the direction of the e, then it continues to ink from the bottom of the e to the top of the l,...the same for the next l, and we're done if we only have to write one word. Well as you might guess all of the lifting stray ink errors make for an ok drawing experience but an absolutely horrible note-taking experience. Get rid of the trails and stray marks where the pen can stop communicating with the digitizer panel once it's lifted every time and....again...it wont be Wacom,...but I'd certainly be happy with it because the placement of the pen to where it begins to write is pretty darn accurate. At this point,....all that we need to know is, is this fixable, or is this inherent?
