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.

2) Someone took the idea to kickstarter and now they are commercializing there
version of a fine point stylus.... only that it cost around 20-30 bucks:

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.
