Is there any way to use a Digitizer Pen on a T410s multi-touch screen?

2010-04-21, 6:31 AM

I have a T410s (2912) with a muti-touch screen running Windows 7 Enterprise - it works very well for finger gestures and such.

 

But I'd really like to use a pen instead of my thick, sausage-sized finger.

 

Is that possible?  A standard pencil or BIC ball-point pen has no effect when it is pressed to the screen.

 

I called into Lenovo Support and eventually was told - nope - only your finger.

 

Can I purchase a special "Digitizer pen" such as those for the Tablet PCs?  Or is the human finger the only input method on this screen?

 

Thanks,

JeffR

I have one on order - looks like it will work!

You need a special stylus for a capacitive touchscreen. Search for "iphone pen" or some-such.

I have the same machine. Did the Pogo iPhone stylus work?
