Wacom's Bamboo Tip is a fine-tip capacitive stylus for Android devices

You can get a cheap capacitive stylus that works with your phone, but they're not much more precise than your finger. Wacom says the new Bamboo Tip is in a completely different league. This stylus has a small tip more like what you'd see on an inductive stylus like the S Pen. However, it works with any phone or tablet. It's a bit spendy for a stylus, but it's available now.

[Deal Alert] Buy a new Pixelbook, get a free Pixelbook Pen ($99 off)

Until February 1, U.S. customers can get a free Pixelbook Pen with the purchase of a new Pixelbook at the Google Store, Amazon, or Best Buy.

That's on top of the many, many hundreds of dollars they already charge for the iPad Pro, Surface, or Pixelbook devices themselves. So this is a risk-free opportunity for would-be stylus slingers to see if they would find such an accessory useful.

Verizon slaps a 'V' on the end of the LG Stylo 2, sells it for $240

The Galaxy Note 7 may have left us too soon, but LG wants you to remember that it also offers stylus-equipped Android phones! Granted, the G3 Stylus and G Stylo weren't exactly in the same super-premium league as the Notes, but they had big screens and pointy sticks, and that's what counts. The LG Stylo 2 wasn't blessed with a G, and perhaps that's why it hasn't come to any American carriers. Spotting a hole where a superfluous letter needed to go, Verizon decided to slap a "V" on the end. So now we have the Verizon LG Stylo 2 V, coming to a retailer near you on October 20th.
