Been reading a lot of good things about the Wacom Bamboo Stylus (http://bamboostylus.wacom.asia/) for iPad, but haven't seen one anywhere yet.

Anyone know if they're available and where from, or when they'll be released? The press releases all say "mid May"

I was going to buy one, you can get them from one ebay seller in the UK for about $60 shipped I think. The reviews are really great, but I think it would be one of those things you would maybe use a few times but mostly just sit in your bag and not do anything seeing as how there would only be a very small amount of apps that you would probably want to be using it for.

I was thinking mostly for drawing apps, eg. Sketch Book Pro etc and a few note taking apps. Wasn't planning as a pointer replacement or anything.

The fact that there's only 1 seller on eBay and the wacom site still lists "coming soon" makes me wonder whether they're selling the genuine article...

It's out in other countrys and the warcom site says out of stock, I'd assume it's the real deal. Yeah I'd like to use it with sketchbook and iannotate.

Edit: Wacom, not Warcom. One of these has the worst customer service i've ever seen and would never do business with again, the other makes fantastic products.
