    Hi folks! Does anyone use it as a productivity phablet (note taking, writhing on the go with BT keyboard/mouse, handwriting with a pen, OfficeSuite or QuickOffice doc editing/creating on the go, etc.)? It could be an alternative to Note 3 at 50% cost. Thanks!

    I used my Nexus 7 on a couple of occasions with a small BT keyboard/mouse/OfficeSuite when my laptop battery died, and it worked well. The OPO's 5.5" HD screen may work as well. There are some precision capacitive pens and apps for handwriting. I'd like to try it...

    Well, if another Android device can do it... The OnePlus One can do it BETTER...

    Not really. It will cost you 100+ for a stylus to do that. The note has hardware to do it that the OPO does not.

    Actually, something like Musemee Notier V2 stylus ($17 at Amazon) might work; there are other options to try...

    Is OTG supported in the OPO?
    Is it possible to use a mouse or a SD card reader?

    Why do you think it would do it BETTER?

    Well, you give me an Android device and I will give you my explanations...

    It should work fine, but you may want to use Bluetooth keyboard/mouse - no wires...

    Without going into an extremely long post, I would say the #1 reason I would say that the OPO would do it better would be pure specifications... The OPO performs better and benchmarks higher than all three of these devices, which tells me that it's hardware performs better under "stress" conditions than the 3 you have listed... Also, with the exception of the Nexus 7, the OPO is tied down to a specific brand's idea of what your Android experience should be, out of the box without modification... Just my opinion...

    Great, thanks, I'd certainly give it a try when I get my OPO (still looking for invite). I got all kind of toys (keyboards/mouses/pens) to play with. It might even support Mircast ot wired OTG to project on the monitor. That would be a real PocketPC...

    Nice find. Only things I've seen like that were in the 3x higher range or more. I wouldn't expect it to reach note levels, but that should be decently precise.

    There's no support for external displays so I don't see myself using BT keybards and such

    I thought Android supports Mircast video transfer, does it? It works fine with Windows 8.1 tablets, like Venue 8 Pro...
