[edit] Overview

This page is primarily a redirect page.

Note that a display screen that does not offer finger touch capability is not called a touch screen even if it supports a stylus. For touch screens a stylus, if offered, is sometimes a separate purchase while the stylus is included on screens that are not touch screens. These screens are referred to as Digitizer touch technology.

Newer technology stylus has a variable pressure which permits true drawing capability. Some have as much as 2048 pressure-sensitive pen tip which provide an actual writing effect to the user. The stylus may have buttons and even an eraser.

Some have a replaceable tip and may offer different widths. Tip life varies.
