Pocketnow Live, Ep. 11: Should the Stylus Be Standard Again?
Apple did everything in its power to tell the world that the best stylus you’ll ever need is your finger. The iPhone changed the way we perceive phones and after almost half a decade we ended up thinking back at the pointing device, gently placing it somewhere in the museum.
Then Samsung came along in October 2011 when the company introduced the Galaxy Note at IFA, bringing the stylus (S-Pen) back in our everyday’s life. The South Korean phone maker identified a niche and acted ballsy in not only bringing something back, with added functionality, but turning it into a successful line-up (original Note, Note II, Note 10.1, Note 8.0).
Are we witnessing the resurrection of the stylus? Do you miss it? Would you use one? Do you? Should your favorite manufacturer consider it a standard? This is the topic we propose for our usual Friday casual talk.
However, if you have another, more interesting one, or just wanna ask some questions, that’s also doable! Pocketnow Live needs no introduction but it definitely needs you to be there in order to happen.
