Jot Touch Stylus From Adonit, Too Much?

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad" @ 03:00 AM

"The folks at Adonit have been working hard on their new product, the Jot Touch, a pressure sensitive stylus with a built-in antenna and a free SDK kit for drawing app developers."

Too much as in it seems pretty complicated to me, but then again i'm used to just a regular old stylus or the tip of my finger. I suppose being able to have tight control over the end of the stylus would be useful for those doing intricate work on their iPad or tablet, but for the regular user like me, I don't see the value. What are your thoughts?

HTC Puccini 10.1" Honeycomb Tablet Coming Soon

"HTC has entered the final stages of testing for its 10.1-inch Puccini tablet PCs, with volume production slated for June 2011."

Mass production of the HTC Puccini tablet is scheduled to start in June. This will be an interesting device for a few reasons. First, the hardware. It is the first tablet I'm aware of with a 1.5GHz Qualcomm processor (I'm pretty sure that's dual-core). It also has a resistive/capacitive screen so it can use touch people are now used to on these devices as well as an old-school stylus. This makes a lot of sense for data entry, note taking, or editing on a tablet device. It will be interesting to see how practical or needed a stylus really is these days. Second, the software. It apparently will ship with Android 3.0.1 which I'm hoping is a typo and it will have 3.1 instead. Either way, as you can tell from the screen shot above HTC has built a new UI for Honeycomb devices. A lot of people seem to like Sense on their phone. I really wish OEM's would stop changing the stock interface and just let you download a different launcher if you want instead. Have you been waiting for the Puccini? What do you most like, or not like, about it?
