The Logitech Crayon is an Apple Pencil at half the price!

5

Update:it seems that Crayon will only be available to schools and it's launching beginning this Summer. That's a bummer.

So, Apple has now released a cheap iPad that supports the Apple Pencil. That's pretty cool — it's an amazing stylus and it was a shame that it was barred behind the expensive entry-price of an iPad Pro. Now, you can enjoy it on one of the new $329 iPads!

But the stylus itself is still a separate buy and sells for $99. Ouch, that's one third the price of the iPad in question — still a tough price-tag!

Well, Apple has partnered with Logitech and the latter will now be selling the Logitech Crayon. With basically the same features as the Pencil, it will set you back $49 — half the price of the Apple product! Pretty nifty.

It's also worth noting that while these new iPads don't support any Smart Keyboard, Apple did mention a robust Logitech Keyboard that it will be selling for the machine. Thus far the latter company has been offering keyboard cases that range between $99 and $129, so we assume we are talking about a similar price point.
