When releasing the Galaxy Note II, Samsung boasted that it has the best of both smartphone and tablet. I think what they really meant is the improved multitasking facility that comes with Galaxy Note II. You can use it more like a tablet. You can  re-size windows, doing other tasks while watching videos and much more. The pop-up window will help a great deal in this.

S-Pen Stylus
