    I really can't wait for a 3 party stylus. I think that is one of the main drawbacks of the centro. Since the screen is smaller you tend to use the stylus more since your thumb is too big for the screen. I wonder how much money they save by using recycled treo 600's to make those stylus. You feel like it will break on the screen if you push down too hard.

    I had the same problem with the 755 stylus and when it broke I replaced it with one that also has a pen.

    Question - how close is it to 755 stylus?

    Hoping to get my wife a Centro when we get to Fl in just over 2 weeks (we are on the road now)

    Havve fun with your new Centro.

    I agree the stylus is flimsy, but it is very light weight (keeps the overall weight of the Centro down) and I so rarely use a stylus.
    My Treo 650 Seidio 3-in-1 Stylus won't fit in it.

    how bigger/smaller is the stylus compared to that of the 700? I have a broken 700 with a stylus still intact. I wouldnt mind carrying that one even if the color doesnt match.

    The 700p stylus is longer -- no go. Will just have to wait until a replacement stylus comes to market.

    It won't fit because of the diameter and its too long.

    If enough people started complaining now as it seems the general consensus is that it sucks, maybe they'll change it to metal and send out new ones to those that complain. I'm pretty good with the stylus/finger combo. I want a usable stylus.

    When I was playing with the Centro I took out my stylus to see if it would fit. It was too long.

    you know, having a stylus that sucks seems ok if everything else is to everyone elses liking!

    i think the it should be the least of concerns of this point. it is only "$99" bucks ya know......

    Take a swizle stick and paint it black - done. It's that flimsy. But that's easily resolved via 3rd party offerings, once available.

    guess its time to try to machine one... it shouldn't be very hard... just have to find a suitable soft tip, nylon or similar...

    From every thread and post I've read on Centro, I would surely swap the 755p for a Centro if I would you.

    Go for it.
