Wacom Bamboo Stylus duo combines stylus with pen

updated 11:10 am EDT, Tue April 10, 2012

Double ended stylus available later this month

Today, Wacom has launched the Bamboo Stylus duo for capacitive tablet users. The successor to the Bamboo Stylus solo, the duo has the same rubber tip that will work on most tablets and a ball-point pen on the opposite end.

Just like its predecessor, it has a 0.24-inch replaceable conductive rubber tip but weighs a slightly heavier 24g. The 0.7mm ball-point pen takes standard ink cartridges, also replaceable.

Wacom's accompanying digital notebook app, Bamboo Paper, will be made available on Android via Google Play in May at no charge following 2.5 million downloads for the iPad.

The Bamboo Stylus duo will retail for $40 from mid-April.

    $40!?!? What's that rubber tip made out of, ground up and processed unicorn horn?

    Ridiculous price ans a kludge too.

    As long as the iPad has only a capacitive layer on the display any retrofit stylus will look just like this one.
