This ultra-slim ballpoint pen from Platinum Pen of Japan is designed to fit in compact spaces, and the stylus tip at the end of the top button works with any capacitive technology touch screen like your iPhone! The aluminum body comes in different color finishes and is an elegant reflection of your style anytime you need to quickly jot down notes. The top knock button extends and retracts pen tip, and is topped with a black rubber end that works on capacitive touch screens. Features a sturdy metal clip. Refills with BSP-60S refills. More body colors available.
Pen dimensions: Approximately 5 inches (12.6 cm) long and 0.2 inches (6 mm) in diameter.
This is pretty good as a stylus for the Samsung Galaxy Note. While the Note

Too bad it doesn't work better. Look for a stylus/pen combination with a
removable cap to avoid the spring-mechanism problem...
