    Has anyone tried one of these for the iPad2? They look pretty cool.

    Looks very nice but not sure i can justify £25 for one :eek:

    Especially when i got a freebie mini stylus that you can connect to the ipad/iphone port when not in use, just slightly longer than an inch and just under a cm thick

    I had one on order, but it was backordered so far out tat I cancelled.

    I have tried most of the ones on te market, and it would be hard to beat te iFaraday.

    Probably the biggest feature of the Wacom bamboo would be styling. Can't beat the iFaraday for functionality.

    Love it!

    I received my Bamboo stylus today. very nice.
    FYI for the artists, you can remove the silver thingy surrounding the tip. This allows the stylus to mimic a brush.

    Very cool. Didn't know that Wacom was making iPad gear. Hope the price comes down soon, I want.

    Backorder

    When I ordered mine from Amazon the wait time was listed as 1-2 months. I received it in about three weeks.

    Thanks so much, everyone, for your feedback. I use a Wacom tablet with my "big rig" and would love to have one of these.

    I ordered mine directly from Wacom and got it in about a week. It has a nice solid feel to it, you can remove the bottom portion to replace the nub or get more of a brush feel and you can also remove the pen clasp at the top if you don't like it. I wish it was a little longer (it's about 4.7 inches) but that is just a personal preference.

    any reviews on how the Wacom bamboo stylus performs compared to pogo stick? I bought the pogo stick but didn't use it much- I wanted it for sketching or PDF markups but you have to really press it hard to work and it defeats the purpose. I wonder if bamboo is any better. I'd take an ugly looking stylus that works like a pen than a fancy one that doesn't. anyone?

    I have had the wacom stylus for a little more than a month, it's great for writing, very smooth, and for drawing. I use Upad, whick has many pen thicknesses, unlimited colors, and seversl background papers. For typing, I find it slow, buy I'm a touch typist ordinarily. The balance is very good.

    I used the bamboo stylus for two months. The tip cracked and broke open yesterday. I loved using it. Very responsive and accurate. I used it daily for 5-6 hours. Very disappointed in the short life. When I received it, I noticed the tip felt thin and flimsy. Sorry for the bad review...as an artist I was very excited about the small tip. It's back to the "cheapos" for me.

    See my earlier post. Send Wacom an email! They replaced my tip for free in 3 days!
