Travel Clip doubles as a stand
Ten One Design, makers of the popular Pogo Stylus for iOS devices, are taking pre-orders for a new version designed for the iPhone 4. Available in Black, Hot Pink, Burnt Orange and Cactus, the styluses offer greater accuracy than a finger, while the black Travel Clip that keeps the stylus in place doubles as a stand in both landscape and portrait mode.
The Pogo Stylus for iPhone 4 offers two clip options, one designed to fit Apple's Bumper case and one for case-free iPhones. The company promotes the stands as perfect for watching movies as well as for using FaceTime hands-free.
Styluses are generally used for apps that require greater efficiency or precision, such as for sketching or taking handwritten notes on the iPhone's 3.5-inch (diagonal) display. To illustrate this and promote the stylus, the company runs an annual art contest, this year for iPad entries.
Shipping is expected to begin October 22nd. The Pogo Stylus for iPhone 4 can be pre-ordered now and costs $15. A version compatible with the iPhone 3/3GS is also available.
