When my s pen bites it i wont be replacing it with the original for the GN2. I recently used my mom s pen from her Galaxy Tab 10.1 and it worked great. You might wonder what the difference is and the answer is a replacable tip. Not sure why the note 2 doesnt have a replacable tip, but the tab does....FYI. Havent shopped the price difference, but thats my plan. Kinda sucks that wacom, a company who provides tablet and pens, and every one has replaceable tips, somehow misses doing this for the GN2, while remebering on the Tab 10.1. Go figure.
oh...note sure if it fits in the phone, i believe it does, but no promises, and obviously this would chang things a bit...but ill try it again and give a responce. Looks like Amazon has the spen at 26 bucks or so.
