Is HWR that important, is it the "killer app" of the tablet. I think no.
Being able to write note, on a screen, store them electronically and have useful things like them being auto dated and categorized e.g team meeting, server architecture etc then encrypted is fantastic, as it would aid fast recall and various other things.
But I don't really need them converted into computer text, my notes are very contextual, there are scribbles, emphasis, lines drawn between words, stars in the corner and all sorts of things that would be very difficult to represent without some very very very clever software, so whats the point.
Im quite happy to take notes in a meeting and then type them up later, usually into a very different format.
All I really want is an ever lasting A4 notepad, with a date stamp.
BTW Microsoft Courier looks very close to dream device so far, lets hope its more than the dream
