Thanks for the opinion.  But what does that mean about that 
verifying local credentials thing?

As yet I haven’t tried any third party apps as I’m awaiting 
for a big update which I’m told is due any day now.  Also, 
although it’s easier than may note takers in this respect, I 
still find the wi-fi connection procedure somethijg of a 
challenge.  The main problem appears to lie with the Touch 
verifying local credentials.  This, of course, is something which 
is very easily achieved on an IOS device and, I’d imagine on a 
mainstream Android device which would be another to score to the 
the Himms/iPad option set out by Zachary.

 They will each deliver somewhat  different experiences.  I'm 
slightly cautious in what I say because I'm still getting to know 
the BN Touch.    And I haven't yet got to the point where I'm 
trying apps such as Facebook and Twitter on it.  You wouldn't be 
able to send texts from the Touch.  However, I've been surprised 
at the accuracy of Braille I'm able to produce on the touch 
screen.  It will also depend a bit on how familiar and happy you 
are with keysoft.  Sorry this is rather inconclusive and a bit 
all over the place.

 Hello.  I am thinking about buying a notetaker, and I am still 
stuck between the Braille Sense U2 Mini plus an Ipad, or the 
BrailleNote Touch.  Any opinions and comments are appreciated.
 Thanks,
 Zachary Morris
