Wacom launches colorful $15 Bamboo Stylus mini that plugs into your audio jack
Ever felt envious about the Galaxy Note line's S Pen stylus, but taken aback by those phones' barely pocketable dimensions? Wacom's new Bamboo Stylus mini series might be the one for you, if you don't mind the short and cutsy stylus dangling from your headphone jack.

Wacom supplied the tiny tool for handwriting or doodling on your favorite phone's screen with a tethered plug for the 3.5 mm audio port, made of rubberized material, which allows multiple insertions without damaging the contacts inside the jack. The pen nib is swappable, as usual, and you can choose from a number of hard and soft variations from Wacom.

Moreover, the Wacom Bamboo Stylus minis cost just $14.95 a piece, and will be available this month in a variety of flashy colors to pimp up your handset even more, while jotting down that shopping list or address quicker than you'd key it in with your fat digits.

Yeah, this is embarrassing. Wacom normally has high tech products, and for it to come out with something low tech, gimmicky, and overpriced... :\

The entire line of Bamboo products are made with the intent of being cheap, and they also operate that way. The software support on Windows is kinda wonky, and on Windows 8 its not fully baked supporting Metro apps.

Misleading article. This stylus has nothing in common with the Note and its Wacom display technology. Unlike the Note, it is just another imprecise nub that offers no advantage over your finger.
