Note Taking?

Do either the 600 or daily edition support note taking outside of a book. I mean like to make grocery lists or journals? Also, if they do, is there a limit on how long these notes can be? Thanks!

Yep. The 600 does, I assume the daily does, too. Both freehand "drawings" and virtual keyboard "text memos" (but not both together as far as I can figure out. I believe the drawings can only be one page. I don't think text memos have a character limit (but text notes within a book do? don't have time to look it up in the manual).

I also plan to make a quick "book" with my typical shopping items. Then I can open that book, cross off the things I don't want that trip using create/edit notes, and continue to cross off items as I get them at the store. End of that trip, "erase notes" and I have a clean slate for next time. That way I can arrange my list in order of how my store is arranged.....

Yes the 900 does as well. I have a few fairlr long notes where I made a list of the physiscal books that I have.

Zieg, thats sounds like a good idea for the shopping list. Keep up the good fight..
