HP Prime pen-using



#6

Is it possible to use the HP Prime touch-display with a pen-like object? If yes, which object?

I Don't own a prime but I would be tempted to say that a standard capacitive screen stylus would do the job. You can find inexpensive one on ebay to try it or borrow one from a tablet owner...

Have a nice day

I have both and have tested using them together. Not much interest to my opinion. I had in mind that this would prevent to get the screen dirty very fast, but the stylus I have leaves quite as much spots on the screen as fingers, even if quite different.

My stylus has a quite large end, made of a rubber-like soft material. Another one, with an hard end would suit me more, but I did not investigate to find one.

That said, I must say that, to my opinion, the more useful tool that I need when using my Prime is a paper clip to reset it when it crashes or when I mix the Shift+Del with the Shift+Clear in program mode and lose instantly all the content of a program, as I explained previously in this forum...



Kind regards.

The hard pointy ones don't work with Prime. When others here reported that the soft fat ones work, I bought one to try it (they're cheap), and it works great... but I never use it any more, because my finger is sufficiently precise and I hate constantly picking up and putting down the stylus.

Joe,

There is a (sort of ) hard tip solution called Jot Pro by Adonit where the pointy end is a clear capacitive disk (d ca 6-7mm) and that works on the Prime screen. I bought it to use for handwriting on an Ipad.

This design allows you to see clearer where you are pointing and gives the opportunity for a bit more accuracy than the soft blobby styluses. It is very expensive though (£27 in the UK), and I am not sure if it is worth the expense.

Cheers,

Terje
