    Yes there are several that will work with the iPad ... I prefer the Griffin stylus for general writing, note taking tasks ... but there are others from Box Wave, Targus, Acase and Ten One Design ... just to name a few ...

    I just received a the "new version" of the stylus from acase yesterday. I haven't had a lot of time to test it yet, but the squishy tip on it give a very natural feedback and responsiveness from the iPad has been great. I kinda of wish it had a narrower pen or pencil like tip, but for some reason all the tips I have seen are similar in size to the easer in a number 2 pencil. I assume there is some reason for that.

    Any stylus designed for the Touch and/or iPad (orginal) should work with the iPad2.

    I have a Pogo Sketch which works fine (I just wish the tip were a bit smaller).

    The screen on the iPad is capacitve( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Touchscreen), not pressure sensitive.
    The screen will only work with certain materials.

    I do not believe it is sensitive enough to sense a small point of contact.

    Yes, and he said that. But i've yet to see a thin point stylus for the iPad, which is what he was pointing out.

    I tried three stylus but could not get satisified with it since they are so thick and does not feel like pointed pen and paper, do you find the stylus for pointed writting?
