Huh? Replacement pens are available if needed.

Not sure I care to power the S-pen, pay for the extra electronics, lower battery life of the Note, etc. just for that. I don't need any of those "features". I can say cheese or wave my hand to activate the camera, and will I really carry a pen around and lose it just to control music that I'm so far away from that I can't touch the screen, or say OK Google pause the music. I'll still get the Note9 but I'm not looking forward to any of that, I actually dislike the sound of it so far. Could have had an IR blaster or maybe even an extra camera for the cost of all that trash they put in the pen. It certainly could have used a couple buttons for use with drawing before all of that stuff. Meh.

Still nervously waiting on information about the actual digitiser... None of these features are particularly exciting but I guess remote shutter release could be useful at least.

What I want is an S-Pen that can be attached as a kickstand for the Note. Make it happen Samsung!
