    I know, I know, the capacitive touch screen means that a stylus isn't needed with the Pre. But, by the same token, it also means that a normal stylus won't work on the Pre.

    My wife wants a stylus for her Pre, so I've been looking. I see this Pogo stylus made for the Iphone and Touch that looks promising.

    Technically, it should work just as well on our Pre's. Has anyone else gotten one of these and used it on their Pre?

    Probably a long finger nail problem.

    I bought one thinking that it might help with an app I use in Classic for Chinese character handwriting entry. Unfortunately you have to press down very hard, so i'm afraid it might break the screen. Apparently the Pre's plastic screen has somewhat different response from the iPhone. The Pogo manufacturer's website says it doesn't work as well as they'd like, so they're working on improvements.

    No fingerprints on the screen?

    That's exactly the kind of thing I was wondering about. They're not terribly expensive on Amazon, so I may go ahead and get one for now and keep on the lookout for a Pre enhanced version down the road. One thing I'm definitely not going to do it get one of the really cheap knock off versions. Various reviews talk about how hard they have to press already on the iPhone, so I can only imagine what kind of pressure it would take to make those work on the Pre.

    Thanks to all for the responses.

    would be nice to have a stylus for some of the apps in Classic.
