This tiny stylus can be gripped between fingertips
Imagine a stylus barely longer than the first knuckle of your thumb. A stylus as tricky to grip and use as the worn-down stubby pencils you were too cheap (or too poor) to replace back in school. Now imagine that, instead of being comfortably cylindrical, these styluses instead are a sharp-edged lozenge shape, complete with a sharp plastic strip protruding from one side.
Congratulations. You just imagined the JAVOedge Mini Stylus for iPad 2. The tiny chalk-stick sized nubbin slots into the dock connector when not in use to stop you losing it (hence the plastic strip), and comes in both black and white to match either flavor of iPad.
The storage idea is a good one, but if you’re going to wrestle with such a short pen, why not just use your short an stubby finger? The stylus could have been made a little longer, too, and still be short enough not to stick out when plugged into an iPhone or iPod Touch.
The stub-tastic styluses cost $10, and are available now.
