ZDNet UK Review: Innovative Capacitive Styluses

That can be a little confusing, but it's something you get used to very quickly. The Nomad Brush is targeted at a very specific market, but it was still our favourite of the styluses we tested: it's comfortable, innovative and very easy to use. Three versions are available: a mini brush, and long- and short-tip full-size brushes.
