Here’s an interesting infographic from Livescribe that covers how users take notes with or without tablets.
Couple of things I find particularly interesting:
- 54% of tablet owners take notes with pen and paper, i.e. not on their tablets. See my thoughts on that here.
- Only 6% of tablet users take notes on their tablet with a stylus. I think this has more to do with the tablets that are out there and their uses, i.e. consumers are driving the tablet market.
- Only 13% of users that purchased a stylus are happy with the experiecne. Two thoughts on this: 1) active digitizers rule, 2) the disconnect between writing on the screen and the appearance of “ink” on the screen is problematic. The new batch of tablets has improved this experience dramatically.
