The Wacom Bamboo Stylus mini is the latest in the company’s range of styli for smartphones and tablets and it can be a very useful addition to a mobile device, in this age of large screens. A stylus can be even more useful especially if, like the LG Optimus G Pro, said device comes without one.

Wacom is a company known especially for its graphic tablets (and is said to be working on a standalone tablet of its own), but it also has an extensive range of styli, in various colors and sizes. The latest addition to the range, the Wacom Bamboo Stylus mini, costs $19.00 and comes in six colors, so you can adjust it to your personality – black, blue, green, red, pink and white.

It’s very small, at 4.7 centimeters and, in order to avoid losing it (which, at these dimensions, is a serious concern), it has a dummy plug for your smartphone or tablet’s headphone jack. The company says that the material the plug is made of is soft enough not to damage the jack.

The nib is interchangeable, in case it gets worn-out, or if you prefer a softer or harder one (the company’s store offers replacement nibs in packs of three, at $4.95 a pack).

How about you? Do you use a stylus with your Android smartphone, or do you prefer to manipulate it with your fingers?

    That’s really expensive. You can get one from china for less than a dollar. It would be worth it if this stylus has special features, but it appears that there is none. And why would the plug have to be made of “softer” materials? A headphone plug is made of metal you know…
