Fingers too fat for the iPhone keypad? Sick of smudges on your iPad screen? Or sick of products that only work for Apple devices?
I was recently given one of these nifty little gadgets: a mini stylus pen for the iPhone or iPad. I was so impressed with its functionality, its store-ability and its cuteness that I just have to tell you about them. Having a stylus reminds me of the days when I had a Palm device. I don’t want to go back there….they were fiddly and I always used to lose them. So I was dubious when I was given this funny looking toy.
Little did I know that it would become a feature hanging off my iPad and that I’d need to get one for my iPhone too! Everywhere I go people ask me where I got it. I’ve even had someone in a restaurant ask when they saw me typing away.
The mini stylus pen comes in 5 classy colours (blue, red, white, black and silver) and boasts the following features:
– Compact, short design (4cm long) – with good width to hold even between the clumsiest of fingers
– Soft rubber angled tip provides enough contact with screen to allow proper electrocurrent flow to replicate the use of your finger on the touchscreen (so precision typing and other actions are easy).
– Clever clip that pops into a 3.5mm headphone jack making it easy to carry around and never get lost!
– Prevents smudging, scratching and damage to the screen
Gotta have one? They make a clever gift for the person who has everything…..or loves the latest gadgets!

Have you noticed the explosion in the Tablet market? If you think I’m talking pharmaceuticals, then you’ll be disappointed. Every month there seems to be the launch of a new tablet. Everyone is getting in on the action and with some of the low price points; the Apple iPad is facing tough competition.
There’s the popular, Blackberry Playbook, Samsung Galaxy Tabs and the iPad to the latest and cheapest to hit the market, the Amazon Kindle Fire at just $200. Even Sony, Fujitsu, Lenovo, Acer, Toshiba, Asus, Motorola and HP have launched their own versions (just to name the brands – there are more!). HP quickly halted production, but only after selling massive volumes at a reduced price. It will be interesting to see if this has the iMate effect (when Vegemite launched a product that failed – and everyone bought them to hold onto and sell later).
