If you were writing off the idea of a stylus (or digital pen) with a tablet, this might encourage you to think again. That HTC’s Flyer boasts of a digital pen was no surprise, but it looks like the HTC Scribe works fine.

Some guys at ElectricPig have previewed the HTC Scribe and have taken a video of it as well. The stylus does all standard functions you would expect, like writing or scribbling and drawing. This one does a little more with saving bookmarks and web pages by writing on them for approval. Check the video below.

The video shows how you can choose colours from a palette; customize your homescreen by scribbling on it and quite some more. There seem to be quite a few more things that you can do with the HTC Scribe but they haven’t been shown in the video.

The one bad point of having a stylus would be if you don’t have a convenient holder or a grip. But on the flipside, many can benefit from writing in a conventional style that they’re used to for quite a while now.
