HTC to allow third party developers to use its
When HTC introduced its Flyer tablet, it included a technology called "Scribe" which powers a pen-like device used to draw, color and write on the tablet's screen. In a interview on Read, Write and Web sponsored by Sprint, HTC spokesman Keith Nowak explained the difference between a stylus and a pen. "A stylus is just a dead stick," said Nowak, and is used for navigation. A pen is used to write or draw. In other words, using the "Scribe" technology allows one to create using a pen rather than simply navigating with a stylus.

With third part developers having access to the "Scribe", it should make for some interesting game-play. Can you think of any video games that use a pen that you would like to see on your tablet?

If its anything like the pens HP uses the tip of the pen itself to replicate pressure sensitivity. It looks like HTC made a pen that has the same tip.
