Stylus support - yea or nay?

2012-07-21, 17:38 PM

I have this stylus:
http://www.motorola.com/us/consumers/Motorola-Stylus-with-Precision-Tip/94675,en_US,pd.html


 


It came with my Xyboard 10.1. I had an Atrix running CM9 (ICS), and the stylus worked perfectly. I had read that ICS had native support for it. I tried it on my Atrix HD and it is intermittent, with no reliable way to know what causes it to work. Any ideas from Moto on this?


 


I don't really need to use it, just figured I would report it - if it was supposed to work, it doesn't seem to. If it is not, it sorta does anyway :) 

Solved! See the solution

Hi mk1151,


Nay. Stylus was not meant to be supported/used on Atrix HD. Thanks for trying though Smile

The one my wife has for her Nook works perfect on my Razr MAXX.


Just do an internet search for: Touch Screen Capacitive Stylus

 Thanks grandsport - the Stylus i'm referring to is a powered device with a hard, fine point - I have a few of the type you are referring to, I don't like the soft rounded tip, it is too difficult to be precise, especially on a small screen. I got spoiled with the awesome Moto stylus for the Xyboard, was hoping it would work on the Atrix HD for drawing and note taking apps...

Ok - I am surprised though that someone hasn't come up with one that would work on these screens that would provide the precision you, and I am sure others, are looking for.

Due to the way capacitive screens work, they need a fairly wide cross section in order to detect the touch and the position of the touch. All devices with stylus support have some kind of special digitizer over the LCD/AMOLED screen (Wacom, etc.


 


There are some that have a smaller tip with a see-through clear pad that slides across the surface, so it's accurate enough for small details, yet the cross section is wide enough to detect the touch.
