Rumor mill has it that the new iPad 2, which is expected to be announced this month will have a new stylus pen accessory. A stylus pen would be a good addition for graphic designers to do sketching and drawings and also open up new opportunities for gaming apps. Apple filed a patent in 2008 for a pen that will use a built-in accelerometer and is pressure sensitive which will allow more subtle variations in shading, brush effects, etc.
It looks like the iPad 2 will be quite a revamped unit with new features like a built-in stand as well. All these changes will affect products already in the market like other ipad stylus and kickstand cases.
Well, guess we can only wait for the announcement later this month.
