Wacom Bamboo stylus
Wacom has launched a new Bamboo stylus pocket pen.

The Bamboo Stylus pocket is a compact stylus for use with smartphones, iPad and Android tablets on the go. The extendable stylus fits easily into any pocket or accessory case, while being big on functionality. Perfect for flicking through emails, taking handwritten notes, or capturing ideas whenever inspiration strikes: The Bamboo Stylus pocket is the essential mobile mate.

Gadgets such as media tablets and smartphones have become every day companions, supporting our need to be constantly available and connected. Bamboo Stylus pocket by Wacom is the perfect tool to aid this contemporary lifestyle, allowing users to digitally write, doodle or navigate more easily on their touch screen devices.

With the Bamboo Stylus pocket, so much more can be done on a touch screen. Compared to a user’s fingers, a stylus is more precise, accurate and comfortable when editing pictures, drawing maps and creating dynamic presentations, even on small keyboards and buttons.

Pocketable but comfortable in use, the Bamboo Stylus pocket allows users to be flexible and spontaneous with smartphones or tablets on the go. Measuring a convenient pocket size of just 9.3 cm, the ergonomic stylus is expandable to a more traditional size. Combining an elegant, fancy silver design with quality synonymous with all Wacom products, the stylus comes with a headphone jack plug on its cap. This means that tedious searching is now longer necessary: Directly attached to the tablet or smartphone, the stylus can´t get lost any more and is always ready to hand when inspiration strikes.

Bamboo Stylus pocket perfectly connects with Bamboo Paper, an app for personal expression, whether for business, school or home use. The digital notebook for the iPad is perfect for a quick note, illustrating a presentation, displaying favourite family photographs or livening up a recipe. Now users can add images and photographs to notes, too. Those images can be annotated or moved around the screen to help illustrate any notes or doodles already on the page. Photographs can even be taken on the iPad and incorporated directly into the app, ensuring that pages really come alive.

Bamboo stylus key features:
  • Smooth soft conductive rubber tip
  • Thin pen tip diameter 6mm
  • Bamboo Stylus cap with strap and headphone jack plug, so it can’t get lost
  • Colour material finish
  • High-value aluminum crafted
  • Shiny finish
  • Comfort soft grip
  • Exchangeable colour rings (silver, blue, red) for individual look
  • Replaceable standardised stylus nib- compatible with all Bamboo Styluses
  • Standard with firm nib
  • Optional soft nib (included in the box)
Launching at Photokina in September 2012, Bamboo Stylus pocket is available now priced at £29.00 including VAT. Bamboo Paper for iPad is available as a free download from Apple’s App Store.

I have used cheap stylii in the past, and they were pretty cruddy. Cheap, light plastic, very soft nibs that can break easily and fall off.
I have had a Wacom one ( the first Bamboo stylus ) for a while now and it's so much better to use. So that's some part of the higher price...then there's the mark up for having the word 'Wacom' written on it.....

Seriously though, if you do a lot of drawing / sketching on your iPad, I would recommend one.

For any serious drawing it looks like the Pogo Connect with 'the world's first pressure-sensitive Bluetooth 4.0 stylus' would be a better bet - but that's going to be more expensive (when it's available http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/Pogo-Connect-Blue-Tiger-Ten-One-Design-Stylus-Bluetooth,news-39900.html )

Or perhaps even a Samsung Galaxy Note (supports a bluetooth pressure sensitive pen instead of that iPad?)

Haven't tried either, and don't use my cheapo stylus much, but the samsung looks good 'on paper' - anybody tried one?
