    Unfortunately, while it may be overkill on a tablet, if you want to use a Windows tablet with digitizer support, I believe you're going to have to use something that supports full Windows 8. As someone mentioned, none of the RT tablets have it built in, and there is no mention of an RT tablet that's coming out with it in the near future.

    I'd say, if you don't want full Windows 8 on the tablet, then go for the Samsung Note series. It's a fine tablet and I know a few people that really love their S-Pen support in Android, and use it frequently. Gotta stick with what makes you happy. ;)
    Yeah, gotta admit it looks really nice. Wish it was all on-screen buttons like the 10.1, woulda been perfect. Minor niggle though in the grand scheme of things, coming from the HTC Flyer...

    if you want something cheap, I would suggest the Lenovo think pad 2. If you want something more powerful and better, get the surface pro. I got the surface pro for the digitizer since i take notes and i am loving it.
    I wouldn't consider 550 for a tablet cheap! Plus I think it's a W8 Pro device again, and I haven't seen anything of stylus support.

    The Lenovo Thinkpad Tablet 2 has stylus support, and is considered a favorite over at Engadget. You are correct in saying that it's a "pro" and comes with an Atom processor. I've been searching around since this thread has started and I have found no RT device with digitizer pen input. :(

    RT doesn't support any digitizer stylus. If you want a stylus, just get the Samsung ATIV Smart PC, or the Asus VivoTab. They run on intel but is faster than arm and has comparable battery life.
    Does the 10" Vivotab support active stylus? I thought only the 11" models did.

    I just ordered a Dell Latitude 10, it seems a good compromise of function and price...

    I guess what I meant is that the Lenovo think pad is cheep compared to other windows 8 with digitizers.

    When I'm on the go I'll be doing things like inking etc, writing up notes in lectures, that sort of stuff. I don't actually need any legacy applications for that sort of stuff (that I am aware of from my experiences with Win8 Pro. On the laptop and desktop that's different though). Plus Windows 8 Pro feels overkill for me. And it's fine. You weren't flaming bashing etc. I'll admit I responded harshly to the guy. And for that I apologise.

    Yeah, it does look as though I'm getting a Note 8.0 - but one thing that is potentially going to keep me to the Surface. On Windows RT (not Pro), is there a NFC writer app available that will write and lock tags, similar to Android? Or is there an app available for the Lumia 920?

    The Lumia 920 has Nokia's NFC Writer or NFC Launchit. There are more, but these are the first two that come to mind.

    As for RT, I'm searching the store on my Surface RT and not finding anything, really.

    Yes but on Android as far as I'm aware there are plenty apps that can lock the tags, but on WP they stay open. I have the Nokia NFC Writer app, but I don't think it locks the tags :(

    I completely skipped over the "Locking" part. I think you're correct in that it doesn't lock them.

    Which is something I would like when developing NFC tags to promote my work. Write them with the Nokia, then validate and lock them with the other device as the Nokia NFC software is so simple, it's quietly brilliant.

    You can use Adonit Jot Pro. I wish the Surface Pro Pen worked with RT.

    Who told you this? There is no dual-digitizer technology beyond the controller chip itself. It just has a capacitive touch screen. The [Wacom active] digitizer layer is only included on Pro.

    I therefore use this digitizer (NEW Touch Screen Digitizer Glass FOR Microsoft RT Surface Free Shipping | eBay ) on MICROSOFT SURFACE PRO 1?

    I doubt at that price you'll get a replacement for the Wacom active digitizer layer. Since the ad says it's for the Surface RT it must be a replacement capacitive touch screen. More than that I have no idea about this product. Best you ask the seller for complete details before purchasing any such product, and also be sure you can do the replacement yourself or know someone who can without damaging your tablet (any more than it already is I suppose, if you need a touch screen replacement).
