The Palm Tungsten T3 is a strange beast from a hardware manufacturer’s point of view. It can get bigger and smaller, and so does its stylus. While Palm never had problems getting the mechanics to work reliably, third parties never did a good job here. Now, someone at Brando’s invested a bit of thinking time into avoiding the mechanics – let’s see what he came up with.

I received my sample from Brando’s. Brando ships its products from Hong Kong via regular mail. Customs seem to leave the parcels alone, and I never received anything damaged yet:

The stylus itself was packed up in a small blister:

The stylus fits into a Palm Tungsten T3 well. Pulling it out is a bit different, you need to pull the top out with your fingernails – this is no problem for me though. My fingernails are very short even for a male, but I still always got the stylus out of my Palm Tungsten T3 easily.

When expanding the stylus, it becomes way longer than the original stylus. One can say that it is the longest stylus ever seen on a PDA:

The pen is hidden underneath the plastic back. Pulling it off allows you to write on paper. Output quality is very good, no need to mention anything negative here.

Writing with this stylus feels very well, both on paper and on-screen. The length makes longer email sessions more comfortable and ergonomic!

Overall, this is the best replacement stylus for the Palm Tungsten T3 I ever saw. If you need a replacement stylus, this is the most comfortable way to go even if you don’t really need the pen. The price of 10$ is a steal for such a product…

  3. I am very very interested in that stylus. Would you please measure it and tell what its exactly length is in cm or mm? The product’s page should provide that information, but, well, it doesn’t. Thanks.

  4. Hi,
    the length is
    extended: 127mm
    compacted: 94mm

    Best regards and sorry for the slow reply
