The Stealth Stylus

Send Article to a Friend

The Stealth Stylus is one of a set of new writing implements from WriteWare designed for use with Newton MessagePads and other pen-based PDAs. We wrote in TidBITS #211 about the company's plastic stylus inserts for popular pens; the new products are the user who doesn't want to sacrifice a favorite Cross or Sheaffer. The basic Stealth Stylus is available in plastic or metal, and in black, burgundy, or an opalescent black chrome, for $9.45 to $22.50.

The Stealth Stylus II is a dual-function pen and stylus, available in several colors and finishes for $17.95 (for matte black) or $18.95 (for other styles). And for the real power writer among us, the Super Stealth Stylus incorporates a plastic stylus tip, pen, and a Pentel mechanical pencil, for $25.95 or $29.95. An upcoming Elite Stylus line will include matching pen and stylus sets, as well as desk sets with marble stands.

PDA owners in the U.S. can now order from WriteWare's new distributor, International Datawares, at 800/222-6032. (They are not equipped to ship outside the U.S., sorry!) [MHA]
