BlackBox Touch Stylus Pen
great replacement for large fingers!
I really like it for my Kobo Vox - responds very nicely. Works really well, as well, with my Aluratek reader. I bought it specifically for the Playbook; the PB doesn't respond quite as well, you really have to "tap hard" but it is much better than trying to hit those small places with large fingers. I would recommend this Touch Stylus Pen for touch devices.
I do wish the cases for these devices came with a spot for things like stylus. I have the Kickstreet keyboard case for my PB - I used some sticky velcro along one edge to stick the stylus so that I don't lose it - we'll see how well that works...

Save yourself the frustration of buying pens that don't work and get one of these. The tip is soft yet durable and precise, and very easy to use (no extra pressure). No scratching, no marking, and easy to hold. I liked mine so much I bought another one of these for my husband for using on his tablet.

easy to use , great feel
Bought this stylus on sale to go with my new Playbook.
I was getting too many fingerprints...smudges.on the screen.
This stylus is great !
It is all metal and has a nice solid feel and works exceptionally well.
It even has a hidden Sim remover pin in the top cap !

Works fine but has major drawback
The Stylus pen is small and works fine, but has no protection cap.
There is also no way to attach it to, or keep it with the Playbook, so the small Stylus pen will sooner than later get lost or at the least the fibers ruined.
I have asked RIM for a solution or suggestions but have not had a reply.
This way the Stylus will not last long and then is not worth the money.
Since it was made especially for the Playbook, it seems to be a major oversight not to be able to attach the Stylus pen to it. Not useful this way.
