So I finally got my Note 2 on christmas Day. First thing I did was activated it and get started. It was my second smartphone to date so the sudden update of contacts and apps I previously downloaded was pretty cool. I also put in my old memory card from my thunderbolt which worked perfectly as well. One of the things I wanted to do was watch HD TV anywhere from my phone. With only usb out I found a series of adapters that worked on the S3 but not on the note and vice versa. The person who got me the phone also got me the Dock and I was all set. What i later found out was that I can plug in usb keyboards and mice to the side of the Dock and along with the Note 2 I now have a portable computer. It works exactly how I want to and now I am able to watch slingbox/netflix or any other video just how I want. I had to sideload flash but that isn't a huge issue. To get a better idea of what I am talking about check this out. Best device I have ever bought. it's a great phone, great tablet, and a great mini computer if you are on the road and do a lot of traveling.
