Our hopes of finally getting a taste of Android 4.0 on our Galaxy Note has just been shattered. The good news is that it’s only momentarily as Samsung announced that the update will happen in Q2 2012 instead. Another bit of good news is that Samsung is working on some exclusive apps that will use the Note’s power.

One of these apps is S Note which lets you combine notes or sketches with other digital content. It also includes Shape Match and Formula Match apps that help correct and digitize geometric shapes as well as solve numeric formulas – drawn using the S Pen.
