Stylus for the ZTE Skate

The question you should ask the seller is: Is it designed to work on capacitive touchscreens? If the answer is yes, it will work on all capacitive touchscreens.

Most pens are designed for resistive touchscreens. They have no effect on capacitive ones like the one on the OMC.

I thought the screen was a TFT screen?

The screen is a TFT, but the touchscreen (a ultra thin and almost invisible plastic layer between your fingers and the screenglass) ist either capacitive (as for the OMC) or resistive (most of the older and/or cheaper cellphones/tablets).

It will work, but never as good as your bare fingers. We have sourced at least 10 types of capacitive stylus with very wide price range, very few are performing OK, most (even the expensive ones) are a waste of money.

Also it is very screen dependent, one performs well on iPad2 may not perform as well on HTC screen (I didn't have Blade back then).

Perhaps you may consider getting a sausage instead, at least you can eat it if it doesn't work up to your expectation :lol:

Will this work on all touchscreen phones especially the OMC?...i'm thinking of buying this for my skate and can use it for future touchscreen phones :)

Doesn't have to be so (Don't see why people worry about the underlying technology more than if it works properly).

The Panasonic Toughbook tablet I have seen demoed has a resistive multi touch screen but you can actually read it in sunlight and it works reasonably well with fingers (gloved or not) pinch to zoom etc etc. Or you can use a stylus.

Don't get why anyone would not think this far superior. (Plus using a stylus you avoid the inevitable build up of crud on the screen.)

Make your own... you know the grey, translucent, anti-static bags computer bits n bobs come in? Cut a strip off, roll it up and jab your screen with it. Jobs a goodun.

Just out of curiosity, how do these stylus pens work? Obbiously you can't use a normal pen so it must be made of something to make it act like your finger.

By disrupting the capacitive field (I think), just like your finger does.
