New Microsoft Surface Pen could have a wireless charging cradle

New Microsoft Surface Pen could have a wireless charging cradle

It's less than 12 hours before Microsoft's big Surface even and the rumors and leaks have already piled up to excite both fans and curious onlookers. But moving away from the Surface devices themselves for a moment, we're also hearing word, or rather seeing a picture, of one of the brand's key accessories. If those rumors are correct, we might finally see a Surface Pen that charges wirelessly. But if this latest tidbit is also correct, it's going to be a controversial change nonetheless.

Surface Pro 7 Surface Pen could have a few tricks up its sleeve

Surface Pro 7 Surface Pen could have a few tricks up its sleeve

Smartphones have been on the front page of tech news for the past weeks and will continue to do so until next month. There might, however, be a brief pause in early October when the consumer electronics world shift its focus to computers and software coming from Microsoft. Redmond is expected and hoped to announce a great many things, some of them too good to be true. Whether the new Surface Pen falls under that category or not remains to be seen but, if rumors are indeed correct, it will be the most interesting Microsoft stylus to date.

Galaxy S and Galaxy Note merger now makes more sense

Galaxy S and Galaxy Note merger now makes more sense

For the past two years or so, there have been rumors of Samsung either merging the Galaxy S and Galaxy Note lines or axing the latter. Galaxy Note users find that proposal almost unacceptable, especially considering it might involve "downgrading" their beloved line to a smartphone without an S Pen. But considering Samsung's trends from the past years, that might actually be the inevitable and best outcome, provided it does make one concession towards lovers of the productive and creative stylus.

iPhone 11 Pro with Apple Pencil tipped by case company

A new set of iPhone cases appeared today with room for their own new Apple Pencil. This new Apple Pencil was placed at the back of the smartphone, attached to the device by a sort of clip with the Apple Pencil branding plain for all to see. This new iPhone for which a case was designed was called iPhone 11 Pro, one of a family of iPhone 11 device that'll apparently be released later this year.

LG Stylo 5 on T-Mobile offers Galaxy Note fans a way out

LG Stylo 5 on T-Mobile offers Galaxy Note fans a way out

The Galaxy Note line might be on its way out. Depending on who you ask, the Galaxy Note 10 might be the ultimate stylus-toting phablet or its a sign of stagnation. Some may even feel that the S Pen ain't all it cracked up to be. Others still believe in the mighty stick but can no longer justify the $1,000 price tag. If any of those sound like you, then the latest LG Stylo 5 might offer a transition away from Samsung's clutches, especially now that it's available on T-Mobile as well.

2019 Samsung Flip digital whiteboard can also recognize paintbrushes

2019 Samsung Flip digital whiteboard can also recognize paintbrushes

While most businesses today have upgraded to computer-centric workflows, one aspect seems to still remain distinctively analog. The meeting room whiteboard, still an indispensable tool for collaboration and explanation, has barely evolved from its original design since the day it was born. Fortunately, there are a few innovations in that space, like Microsoft's Surface Hub and Google's Jamboard. Not to be outdone, Samsung has also launched its own Samsung Flip line of digital whiteboards and its 2019 model offers improved support for using any object as a stylus.

Surface Pen of the future could have its own display

Surface Pen of the future could have its own display

The stylus is one of the understated input devices of modern times. Ridiculed by the late Steve Jobs, it has now become the star of Apple's new iPad Pro vision. Still, there only so many things you could cram inside a small stick. Wacom put buttons, Apple places a touch sensor, and Samsung added a Bluetooth transmitter. Microsoft's latest patent, however, definitely takes the cake by envisioning how its future Surface Pen could have not just buttons or radios but a while touch screen panel on its side.

Moto Z4 has a secret feature if you have a Microsoft Surface Pen

Moto Z4 has a secret feature if you have a Microsoft Surface Pen

When the Moto Z4 launched just two weeks ago, there wasn't much applause for the rather disappointing Motorola "flagship". Aside from the Moto Mods support and the capability to get a 5G connection in the future, the Moto Z4 is pretty much a mid-range phone that fails to reach up to expectations of a 2019 flagships. It might, however, have an unpublicized feature that may make it a little more interesting to a certain class of users: active stylus support.

Logitech’s newest accessory is a weird VR stylus

Logitech’s newest accessory is a weird VR stylus

With a new generation of VR headsets seemingly upon us, Logitech has decided to launch a rather interesting accessory for virtual reality: a stylus. Dubbed the VR Ink Pilot Edition, this stylus will allow users write or create either on a 2D surface or in 3D at room scale. The idea, it seems, is to give end users a degree of precision when working in VR that they otherwise may not have.

Galaxy Tab A Plus arrives with an S Pen, 8-inch screen

Google may have given up on tablet but Android OEMs haven't all thrown in the towel just yet. Following the uneventful launch of the Galaxy Tab S5e, not Tab S5, Samsung has even more quietly launched a new tablet for the masses. But rather than just a simple low-end slate, the Galaxy Tab A Plus (2019) boasts of decent specs, an 8-inch Full HD screen, and a talented S Pen to boot.
