"Whether there's a genuine need for handwriting recognition is another matter. Just why one would write instead of using an on-screen keyboard in a meeting is anyone's guess: you'll obviously be giving your device more attention than those in the room with either input method."
Been doing that for years in Windows with OneNote. Take notes/minutes during a meeting, send them out before the meeting's done. Don't have to write them up later when back at desk. Add sketches etc.
I'm genuinely surprised Android hasn't had this kind of thing until now. The way people go on about their plastic-coated, lagtastic Android toys, you'd think they could also make the lunch.
