Quick look: Pogo Sketch by Ten One Design


Capacitive touchscreens are quickly moving from a rarity to more of a necessity with everything from the iPhone OS to Android. Designed from the ground up as finger-friendly, they eschew the long-hated stylii that always seem to get lost or broken, yet are vital to using the many resistive screens out there.

It almost seems ironic that what you see here is a stylus designed for the device that started the capacitive madness, the iPhone. As if wanting to relive the good old days, Ten One Design has released the Pogo Sketchir?t=pocketables 20&l=ur2&o=1 - for some reason we don't have an alt tag here ($14.95), a sleek aluminum-bodied stylus featuring a clip and a fuzzy felt-like tip that takes the place of that index finger. If this sounds familiar, that's because we have covered a similar product from HTC that is being marketed for the HD2.

Follow past the break for a few pictures of the Pogo Sketch, and see if it might be something that could come in handy for a quick note or doodle on anything from your Nexus One or HTC HD2, to even an iPad or a signature on a multi-touch trackpad.

Those of you spoiled by Jenn's wonderful pictures that she uses on everything from size comparisons to reviews, please excuse my wimpy iPhone 3GS pictures; it's all I had on me today.




Also, you may notice that my handwriting needs some work, Pogo or finger, but it's gotten me this far so I'm just going to stay with it. Be thankful I didn't try to draw some artwork, because things would have gotten ugly very quickly.

The Pogo Sketch is available at Amazon.comir?t=pocketables 20&l=ur2&o=1 - for some reason we don't have an alt tag here, most Apple Stores (where I purchased mine), or direct from Ten One Design.
