Question Inking on the Duo - 01-04-2011, 02:00 PM

I have had the Duo for about a week and after tweaking it to my preferences I really like it! I travel a lot and used to carry a Mini 9, the Duo is a much better experience! That said I started to play with Windows Journal, using a finger it is OK, but for serious note taking I think a stylus is needed. I looked at the styluses for the iPad, but my local Best Buy only had the Targus one, I bought it and had disapointing results. I saw a review of the Hard Candy stylus for iPad and before I order one I was looking for anyone that may have tried it or any other stylus with the Duo.

Thanks for any input!

You'll need a stylus meant for a capacitive screen. Those that claim to work on the iPhone or iPad should work.

Local Bestbuy's have them.
I bought mine for ~$11 at their store, surprisingly I see the price is higher online.

This one is suposed to be very accurate but it has mixed reviews. This design is suposed to eliminate the problems with the normal styles like the Targus. HTC Capacitive Stylus for HTC MyTouch 3G, 1.2, Hero CDMA (1 Pack): Cell Phones & Accessories

Whatever you do, do NOT buy a cheap one on eBay from China. I won't make that mistake again, my big toe works better........

This one has very good reviews and is similiar in design to the Targus but according to the buyers works really well. BoxWave Capacitive iPad Stylus (Jet Black): Electronics
