Although there are many different stylus designs out there to choose from for the Apple iPad, we encourage you to check this one out. The jaja is the first ever pressure sensitive stylus for the iPad and it appears to be pretty impressive.
One of the better options for a tablet stylus is this one from Targus, which also happens to function as a pen for when you’re writing on an actual piece of paper.
When it comes to 3rd party stylus offerings for the iPad, most are nothing more than simple pens that offer a finer tip and nothing more. What if you want a pressure sensitive experience that somewhat mimics Wacom technology? If that’s what you want, than consider Pogo Connect.
The Style-iT stylus from the folks at Bracketron is a “dual function” stylus in that one end is designed to poke at your iPad (or other capacitive touchscreen device), while the other end is a conventional ballpoint pen. That way, you can scribble on both your virtual notepad and your actual paper one using the same product.
Just Mobile has “just” released an iPad stylus that allows you to take control of your touchscreen iDevice without smudging up the entire display. The chunky Alupen is a stick 4.75″ thick stick of aluminum in the shape of a pencil, it has an “Ultra-soft rubber nib” on one end which is smooth and finished in matte black. I call it the giant crayon for Apple nerds.
Microsoft never had any real place in the tablet PC market. The project Microsoft Courier project was their greatest hope, and even that was canceled for some strange reason. From the very beginning it was not clear if the Courier was ever going to reach a real life product, because it is one of many Microsoft’s working prototypes that never end up going anywhere. But everyone’s response to the Courier should have drove them to making that thing a reality.
If you are a graphic designer you know Wacom, they come from a long tradition of providing an industry standard tablet. And then there are instances where you may want a stylus for your iPad, enter the Wacom Bamboo Stylus.
I’m not entirely sure what Asus is trying to accomplish with the Eee Tablet, but it seems to have found itself in the middle ground between a Kindle and iPad. On display at Computex Taipei 2010, the Eee Tablet is marketed as “the single device to reinvent reading and writing.” It doesn’t use the regular e-ink (slow refresh) display of the Kindle, but it’s not a full color “real” screen like the iPad either; it’s somewhere in between.
What was known to only a few key engineers at Microsoft was leaked earlier this month and referred to as the iPad killer. We now have more information on the Microsoft Courier, and it appears to be a good contender in the emerging segment of tablet devices. But is it a tablet, a digital journal, or a tablet and a digital journal all rolled into one? Perhaps its part of a new segment of devices named Smartbooks. Regardless of what it is, Microsoft is going up against Apple and their latest offering: the iPad.
The Courier is in fact a digital journal and its goal – will wonders never cease – is in fact to make folders and diaries obsolete. If you’re in class or attending a power lunch and even writing down an important individual’s phone number, scribbling on the palm of your hand or a napkin is unnecessary. It looks like paper might just be a thing of the past sooner rather then later. Which is a good thing, because more trees, equals more oxygen for all of us.
Nothing is more capable of keeping us on the edge of our seats than the development of major Tablet computers coming from every Steve, Bill and Asghar. We are witnessing the revolution of mobile computing right before our eyes, and the best part about it, no one knows who will be the big player in the end. Will the iPad be another iPhone? Will Microsoft’s Courier be a flopping Zune? Can content providers and application developers shape the way Tablet computing evolves, taking control away from hardware providers? Only time will tell, but until now, here are more details on Microsoft’s latest “leaked” achievements.

The idea of a digital canvas is nothing new, and with the expanse of drawing and painting apps and programs out there, the iPad and other tablets definitely have the ‘canvas’ side of that equation covered. But, as with a regular canvas, your fingers will only take you so far.
Well, stress no more. This summer, Leapfrog’s new edutainment tablet for kids 4 years old and up will be hitting the stores, allowing Johnny and Betty to have their own tablet computers to learn and draw on. You’ll never have to hand over your iPad or Galaxy Tab again.
CherryPal’s claim to fame came when they released the world’s first $99 laptop with a 7-inch screen back in 2009. The 400 MHz cpu with 256 GB RAM and 2GB of flash memory was by no means a workhorse, but it didn’t need to be. CherryPal makes devices a couple generations behind the current markets offerings, this is because they target lower income families, educational institutions and “emerging markets.”
CherryPal is now shipping their $188 Android tablet. It’s less than half the price of an iPad, and the company says early user experiences of the CherryPad are “extremely positive.” With Android 2.1 on board, the CherryPad has full access to the Android Market. We’ve heard of other tablets not getting full access, so this is something substantial with all things considered.
The tablet, get this, ships without an OS pre-installed. It’s totally up to you what operating system you want to load onto the beast, assuming that it is compatible with the hardware found inside. According to the devs, the internals should be good for “almost any OS,” including Linux, Windows, and even OS X.

The Etch A Sketch was a small box-like toy filled with aluminum powder that could be scraped off the inside surface of the glass to create a dark line on its light gray screen. Two knobs would allow you to move vertically and horizontally across the screen to create either a mess of lines, or a fantastic image. When you were done, just give it an upside down shake, and you can start allover again.
Samsung Electronics of America today unveiled their eReader tablet computer for the US market. With a name far less revolutionary than others, Samsung’s eReader should still give the Kindle a run for its money.
The compact portable Samsung eReader sports a 6-inch e-Ink display capable of 600×800 resolution with 8-gray scale shades. This is a more traditional eBook screen primarly to be used for newspapers, paper back novels, and simple image viewing, unlike Apple’s iPad offering more colorful, rich-media interaction for the end user.
