Typing Accents on the Samsung Galaxy Tablet

I just read a blog post about typing French accents on the iPad 2.  You can press and hold down a letter on the keyboard, causing letters with accents to appear.  You would then slide your finger to the accented letter you wish to use.

I recently acquired the Samsung Galaxy 10.1 tablet and thought to try this out on my keyboard - it works!  I love the bigger keyboard on the tablet compared to the older (and smaller) tablet I had.  It is easier to type and the office program (Polaris) allows seamless integration of multimedia into documents.

This will be great for using in the classroom, especially now that I realize there is an easy way to type French accents on my tablet.
