Wacom releases Bamboo Stylus Mini for Tablets and Smartphones

With the recent push into mobile editing software like Adobe Photoshop Touch, it's no surprise that additional support in various forms will start to crop up. Today Wacom released a new Bamboo stylus designed specifically for smartphone and tablet editing, which is a plus for anyone who lacks dexterity in their fingertips (like myself).

From the press release:

"Bamboo Stylus mini delivers a fresh new look to the input category. For the most design discerning, portability might be the mini’s best feature of all. The 'take me anywhere' appeal of the stylus is ideal for on-the-go mobile device users looking for new and fun ways to interact with note-taking, drawing and gaming apps. Losing Bamboo Stylus mini need never be a concern thanks to its tethered dummy plug that can be plugged into the headphone jack of a smartphone or tablet. The soft plug material will not damage the headphone jack, even after frequent use."

Bamboo Stylus mini will be available in April for about $15.

You can get these as "free gifts" when purchasing any apple chinese 3rd party accessories... don't think the "bamboo" name is worth the $15 bucks

Is it just me or these look like female hygiene products?

Nothing new, looks like all the other stylus pens except for shorter which I'm not sure is a good thing. I would like to see a stylus with a tip as thin as a real pen, that would be awesome for more detailed work.
