Hey, I'm looking to take some notes on my tab and was looking for some suggestions. I've found a couple cool programs but need a pen.

My noted are almost all math related so equations and such.

Any advice would be very helpful.

When it comes to capacitive stylus, I believe price is a good signal of quality. I have tried both high end (e.g., boxwave) and low end (generic, bundled with other accessories), and the difference is very noticeable. Good luck taking math notes.... I am an economist and my note-taking involves math too. You are going to have a hard time getting good results. I tried doing this, but had to go back to my clunky convertible tablet to get the results I needed. Unless you get a slate with a digitizer (like the Flyer or the Thinkpad), you are pretty much out of luck.

Hmm, looks intriguing. I'm not holding my breath until this type of technology is proven and reviewed thoroughly. Thanks for sharing.

Edit; Here's the blog with the detailed instructions:

Will take a look. Still in the market for a tablet. I like tthe 10.1 but would be better if I could take notes.

I find the flyer too small for me and the one that att has is like $800 so I'd rather use paper than that lol.

The more I look at htc's pen the more I like it, I might have to just suck it up and get a 7inch tablet.
