Many companies sell stylus replacements. In the glorious days of the Vii, many kinds of styluses were sold. This variety reduced itself to styluses with pens-and we now review Proporta’s offering for the TE2.

Proporta’s stuff ships via regular mail. Stuff always arrives in a good condition:

The stylus ships in a blister pack. A bit of tea is included with each product to simplify ‘aquaintance’:

Palm’s original stylus is made of a very reflective kind of metal, while the Proporta one looks more like the housing of a T3. It looks very nice and fits the handhelds color well:

Writing on-screen is comfortable! The tip is very smooth and big, writing with it is easy.

The pen can be revealed by pulling the nib off the stylus-this takes a lot of force though and is not easy. Writing on paper is ok for such a small thing:

The output is quite good for such a small thing:

A reset pin is contained in the back of the stylus. It works for most handhelds that cannot be resetted with the tip. Accessing the pin is a bit difficult though-you need to turn the back around 13 times-a bit too much for my taste.

Overall, the stylus leaves a positive impression! Writing on-screen in very comfortable, and writing on paper works too. However, the mechanics are average. Opening the stylus tip is difficult, and unscrewing the reset tip takes a bit of time. In addition, I received a damaged component at first(was promptly exchanged). But this stylus still is way better than the stock one!
