    Did we talk about this already? ASUS Project Precog.

    Interestingly, I appreciate that ASUS has though about the coding usecase with HTML on the left and web-preview on the right. I could see this being quite useful for a developer on the go:

    I have to say, if they take this design further with an integrated stand and detachable keyboard cover this looks like a "Courier" rival I could get into.

    Linus has a further sneak peek:

    Should have known that if Samsung doesn't have one yet, after YEARS of teasing folding LCD's, there was no way the little team of wunderkids in Microsoft's basement could pull this off...yes boys and girls, that's me

    Hm, he writes: "... I'd buy a Samsung Galaxy Note type of device in a heartbeat if it was built around OneNote instead of S Note." Hasn't he looked lately?

    My Note8. Adding OneNote to the radial is easy and while creating a new OneNote page requires an extra tap compared to Samsung's built-in note app, we're only talking 2-3 seconds.

    Ha, I pretty much just made the literal same comment on the Neowin post seconds before seeing this.

    OK all you experts - what is the OneNote experience on Android like compared to: (1) Windows 10 UWP OneNote, and (2) iOS OneNote?

    Never used iOS OneNote, but Android OneNote is very limited. Writing, plus Bold, Italic, Underline, Strikethrough, Highlight, Bulleted List, Numbered List, and To-Do tags. You can insert audio and pictures too.

    As for writing features, you get the option for one size of rule lines and one size of grid lines and nothing else. And then there's 15 preselected pen colors to pick from (and two favorites buttons) and a yellow highlighter. Only one type of eraser as well, the stroke eraser (which I prefer personally).
