Just a quick note.
Bought the Gnote and I’m using it on my 13th day now. It is AWESOME! One thing puzzles me though.
The size of it quickly becomes familiar. That is until you put it next to my old Nexus S, which makes the S look pitiful now. And the more used to it I get the more I wish the Gnote would be closer to 6 inches.
But it is fast, rivaling the Nexus S and easily outperforms my trusty old transformer. Both of which are on 4.0 And in daily life it replaces both of them, while my pockets shows no sign of complaints.

Only annoyance is that my dad is visiting from Denmark and his has had ICS pushed out, while I’m still waiting on mine. I will be rooting it as soon as ICS comes to mine.

Have fun.
Arne, Cyprus.
