iPad Mini, Surface, other Windows 8 devices, so much that’s new on the tablet and phone front. But what about a star (at least in the eyes of many) that’s already out there and now in it’s second and, quite stunning, next iteration.

Would I get a Note 2? Frankly I’m not sure. It’s attractive in many ways, but that size. It would mean a move from iPhone, do I really want to do that? On the other hand there’s those other offerings coming up outside of Android and iOS6.
