Device: PRSt2, pocket edge
hand written notes + 10" e-reader

Hi,

I'm looking for a ~10" device capable of note taking on PDFs. Looking at older models both because of budget and b/c I don't want a touch screen (avoid accidental touch etc. I still use a blackberry :-p), so I'm only looking at older pen devices.
The edge can do it, but it's big/heavy and very old (android 2.2).

From what I saw I should be looking at:
Irex 1000
Boox m92/m96
pocketbook 903/912

I prefer linux, but android kitkat is also fine.

Reading the wiki etc. I saw the pocket book has issues with PDF - does anyone know if it was resolved?
and are there any other models I should look at?

Galaxy Tab A 10.0. tablet. Can be had on sale for 250, used for less than that. It is touch but has palm rejection. It has excellent noting taking apps. Lecture Notes, One Note, Quid, and others including PDF annotation apps. It uses Wacom which is the best pen type you can buy for note taking. Writing is very smooth and you it doesn't register touch if the pen is near the screen.

There are two models of this tablet: one with an S-Pen and one without. I have the one with the S-Pen and it's a fine device for notes and drawing and as good as you describe. The Galaxy Tab A 10 without the SPen is just another tablet and you can't use it with a digital stylus and with a capacative stylus it doesn't have palm rejection. So if you get this one be sure to get the right one.

You're right. I had forgotten that there were two models. I don't know what the ops budget is but this tablet is the best bang for the buck when it comes to note-taking devices. I also have the Galaxy Tab S3 with S Pen. Its double the price and a nice unit but its not worth double the price. It's just a matter if you need top of the line screen, a more premium build and an extra 16gb of storage. The added storage is nice I'll admit, but spending that, 499 on sale, 597 normal prices. Now you're in iPad Pro range. Also very good at drawing and handwriting but a lot more storage options. I've always found the ereader note annotation devices to be lacking. Usually underpowered and overpriced. I demand complete smoothness with no lag when writing. Perhaps today's devices are better but you can do so much more with a tablet.
