has anyone come across a 2 in 1 s pen stylus. One that looks like a real pen, has a ballpoint in it as well as the S pen nib and action button.
I'm always having to swap s pen for a real one as I use the S pen a lit. Used to have a 2 in 1 stylus in my Palm Pilot days, it was a really smart one looked like a Mont Blanc and was a very useful bit of kit.
I'd be grateful if you could keep your eyes open.

Bamboo made a duo stylus. I know they make a full size s pen as well for tablet use. Maybe check with them if they make dual sided pen.

Thanks folks looks like I'm going to have to go for a dedicated s pen like the 10 inch Note one.... http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/aw/d/B007...pi=SL500_SS115

It's the lack of balance with the shipped s pen which makes it tricky to use for long periods of time.

I know the note devices use Wacom touch screen technologies, and so does the Microsoft Surface Professional series. So if you find a stylus that works on the Surface Pro it will also work on the note. I have a surface Pro and have tested this on numerous occasions. Hopefully that broadens your search a little.
