With a striking polished finish, functional rubber tip and integrated ballpoint pen, the Targus 3-in-1 Stylus for Capacitive Devices will add comfort, convenience and class to your tablet experience. Although the stylus is designed and made for the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch, it's actually compatible with any capacitive touchscreen device. Since a capacitive touchscreen relies on the distortion of its electrostatic field to indicate a command, the stylus has to act as an electrical conductor, just like the human finger. By using the same distortion technology, all capacitive touch surfaces are compatible with the 3-in1 Stylus - making it ideal for everyone with a compatible device. The rubber tipped stylus facilitates greater typing accuracy and comfort, as well as preventing damage to the screen's surface. It also makes it much easier to take notes, type emails, and even browse the Internet. The inclusion of a ballpoint pen and laser pointer adds the simple convenience of having a pen close by to jot down little notes on paper. It even uses standard Parker Ballpoint ink cartridge refills. The 1 mW laser pointer comes in handy for teaching and presentations.

3-in-1 Compatibility
Although made for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch - the 3-in-1 Stylus is actually compatible with all capacitive touch surfaces due to the special ability of the stylus to produce a distortion in the screen's electrostatic field, similar to the human finger. Plus, this model features a ballpoint pen in the opposite tip of the stylus, as well as a laser pointer. The pen is compatible with any normal writing surface for ink and the ballpoint is compatible with standard Parker Ballpoint ink cartridge refills
Stylus Features
The durable and soft rubber tip, which prevents scratches to the touchscreen surface, also facilitates greater typing accuracy and comfort. It makes it easy to take notes, draw or simply turn a page. Plus the stylus requires no power or software to work and it is ready to go right out of the box
Ballpoint Pen Features
If convenience is important to you, then the 2-In-1 Stylus for iPad will be a useful tool. It incorporates a standard ballpoint pen opposite the stylus rubber tip. Targus added the pen as a quick alternative way to jot down notes, as well as for places like the boardroom or classroom, when traditional pen and paper note taking seems more appropriate. Like any other ballpoint pen, this one has a cap, a clip, and uses standard Parker Ballpoint ink cartridge refills
Laser Pointer Features
The 1 mW laser pointer at the other end of the stylus allows you to quickly and easily highlight content for discussion with the push of a button

      Comments about Targus 3-in-1 Stylus for Capacitive Devices:

      I've tried several types of styluses and I keep coming back to this one. I take my tablet to meetings and this stylus is the perfect companion with built-in pen and laser pointer. I like the weight of it - feels solid in my hand - also writes well. If you like a light pen then this might not be the right one for you. I've found that everyone in the office that has looked at it here likes it.

          I ordered it along with Asus Transformer. I found this thing a little bit heavy; it has to be so because it's 3-in-1 Stylus: laser pointer, regular pen, and stylus.
