The importance of HID Drivers

What is the closest UMPC in the market to a Tablet PC? The eo v7110. Why? Because this is the only device in the market at this moment that have HID Drivers (Human Interface Device Drivers) . Without these drivers many programs do not recognize an UMPC as a truly Tablet PC. Without these drivers the handwriting looks terrible. I know that some of you do not believe this so I asked a friend of mind to analyze two fonts created by me, one from my Samsung Q1 and another created in my TabletKiosk eo v7110. And here is the result.

The font created in the eo v7110 has more natural edges.

Anybody with the opportunity of using both UMPCs will find that it's a lot easier to use the stylus in an eo v7110. After a few minutes using the TabletKiosk eo v7110 and going back to my Q1 I get very frustrated when I see how my handwriting comes out in the Q1, it does not look at all like I'm the one writing on it.

Samsung are you thinking to do something about it?

Note: A friend of mine just told me that the i7210 also has HID Drivers. So here is another reason again to ask Samsung why not to do the same in their devices?
