Baker's Report: Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2

I'm up early, in my prep clothes and by the time Tim wakes, the house will smell of apples and cinnamon.  Which is good because yesterday, I didn't do a ding dong thing.

Nope nope.  Instead I stayed in my jams and played with my new Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2, with Logitech bluetooth keyboard and case.   This is what Tim got me for Halloween, along with a Halloween Snoopy and Woodstock mug.

None of which I have pictures to show you yet.  But dig this, when I write a formula, I can talk into the Galaxy and it will type it for me.  Or use my S pen for hand-written notes and with one click, convert them to text.

Or, if I'm reading articles about food, but I only want to save one paragraph, all I have to do is circle it with my S pen and save just that bit, for later.

But that's not all.  I can also use the device to snap quick photos of the steps, and insert them into the notes.

Or, or, or ... I can watch my favorite cookery shows and play along at my kitchen table, because the Logitech keyboard turns the tablet into a laptop.

Best Halloween gift, ever.

    1. I don't have a SP either. But I'm not remotely interested in iPhones or Smart Phones. I'll just stick with our flip top that my husband and I share.

      We're not big mobile phone users.

  6. Halloween present! I usually get my husband a Reeses Peanut Butter Cup. Sounds like a great device.

    1. That's it? No gifts? No Halloween tree? And only one apple pie baked per year?

      You're killing me.

  8. Sounds like you're having a blast. When I got my Samsung phone, I did the same thing - spent almost a whole day getting to know it.

    1. Glad you love your gadget. I went with the Note Pro 12.2 because I'm a writer. I wanted both that laptop and tablet combo with the killer Logitech cover and keyboard.

      I haven't been out of the blogs yet this afternoon. Just finished work and had lunch. Thanks for the mention. Headed over there now.

  12. This is the best Halloween present I've ever heard of. You will definitely have a blast using it! I'm half embarrassed to say I've never given a Halloween present, nor received one. You are a lucky girl!
