The Wacom Bamboo Duo Stylus Pen works fine with my Amazon Fire Tablet, but on an older tablet, I found that I had to press down on the screen with the stylus harder than normal to get the touchscreen functionality to work. What makes this stylus unique is that you can use the opposite end to write on paper, like a pen. When the ink runs out, you can take the internal pen contraption out and replace it with one bought from an office store. But for what it is, I don't see why it would cost so much. If it was cheaper, around ten dollars, I would easily recommend it to anyone who wants to control their smartphone or tablet with enhanced precision so that you don't end up pressing the wrong button or whatever. It's good but expensive.
