Hi Anon,

Isn't Microsoft's wheel UI limited to MS Office?

And isn't limited to a few apps only, like OneNote MX? And doesn't carry preset tools in that wheel?

That would be a little different from Samsung's version which will allow users to set the tools of their choosing in the wheel. Yet in principle, in respect to "patent claims" you might have a bit of a point. However, Samsung adds the "slide" instruction to the wheel functionality which differentiates it from Microsoft's version.

Regardless, that was a good point Anon. Thanks for sending it in.

Isnt't this what Microsoft's wheel UI is all about?
