Several of the current ebook readers has this as a feature. And there are also many tablet pcs out there where handwriting on screen is a possibility. But is this something that people use?
And if it is used can it actually replace paper?
I think it's a matter of preference.
There is an associate of mine two actually that buy tablet PC specifically for this capability. They swear by it and relish the fact that their text note are instantly archived on the PC.
I do use this feature extensively on my smart phone even over the qwerty keyboard. I find I have to use the letter recognizer else I cannot read my handwriting later.
However I will always take a keyboard over hand writing any day. I can type far faster than I can write.
