The Wacom Bamboo Stylus for the iPad isn't the first stylus created to work with Apple's tablet, but it might be one of the most comfortable we've ever used. The $29.99 stylus has a similar heft to a real pen, and has a soft rubberized tip.

A detachable pen-clip on the back could be useful for clipping on the back of a case, but not many cases we own have dedicated storage pockets for styli. A matte-textured barrel is about as thick as a ballpoint pen's.

We found the soft, rubberized tip to work gently on the iPad's screen. It doesn't register for sensitivity per se, but it certainly made sketches easier to execute.
