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...

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.

i really like this stylus but think those with larger hands may find it hard to grip. love the clip, i attach it to my roots cover so i always know where it is. works well but is a little pricey and the only thing i can compare it to is my finger so don't know how it will stand up to less expensive products. sometimes you get what you pay for sometimes you don't, you might get a better product then you thought you got. here's hoping i got the better

Great for navigation, not great for other things
This is a great pen for navigating screens, internet, etc. I use it on my HP Touchpad (with Android OS). I'm not sure about the durability yet. Like other reviewers, I think it would be better if there was some sort of protective cap to cover the fibers. I tried to use this with a drawing app and it's difficult to tell where the line will draw when you touch the pen on the screen. I believe this is because there isn't a point on the end.
