Hector Gomez Discovers another iPad Stylus Alternative

By  |  11 Comments

Like me, Hector Gomez is on the lookout for a good stylus solution for the iPad. It looks like he might have found one from Targus. You can see it in action from the video below. He picked it up at his local Best Buy. Here’s the Best Buy link.

Like the Boxwave Stylus it appears to have a rubber (or rubber-like) tip, which makes Digital Ink flow better smoother on the screen than other alternatives.

      The case made by Macally and is called Microfiber Cover & Stand. Warner also has the same case. I picked it up at my local Fry’s on sale for 34.99 last month.

    Looks like it’s almost identical to the BoxWave- although it’s missing the headphone lanyard which is a nice feature. And speaking of, I picked up a BoxWave stylus based upon your review and I love it. Thank you!

    I would like to purchase one of those. What is brand and name of this stylus. I just went to the BoxWave website, but they have many stylusses with vague descriptions. Which one should I look for?

    Thanks in advance.

    You should find a Best Buy link for the Stylus Hector was using in this post above.

    The link in the post below has an Amazon link for the BoxWave Stylus.

    I have little doubt that the Targus stylus is the same as the Boxwave after Hector did the side-by-side with the Pogo; BUT he quoted a much better price of $14.95 instead of $20.95 for the Boxwave
