Galaxy Tab Bluetooth Stylus up for order in UK
The Bluetooth stylus from Samsung made to work with the company's Galaxy Tab is now up for pre-order at the UK retailer Play.com. First leaked about a month ago, the listing confirms that the pen will have capacitive touch capabilities and let users handwrite on the Galaxy Tab when paired with a compatible app. It gets a built-in Bluetooth multipoint receiver, letting users pair it with more than one device.
The design will also let users hold phone calls through the Galaxy Tab without relying on its microphone or speakers or a connected set of headphones. The pen ships on October 4 in the UK, priced at the equivalent of $79. The ship date could also be shared with the release of the Galaxy Tab itself.
