Xtremely Cheap ... YOKA® 4-Way Stylus Pen PDF Print E-mail

Palmx BTM is an event where members meet and share experience about PDAs and other gadgets. The last meet saw a 4-way stylus pen that is Xtremely cheap, courtesy of Asri a.k.a. PedangTimur.

This plastic stylus is great for the budget conscious (read, xtreme "kedekut") and for those who have the tendency to leave their stylus every where. Well, how much does it cost? ... prepare for a surprise ... about the cost of a nasi campur lunch .... RM3.20. I told you, you'd be surprised!

It looks like any ordinary 4-way pen by BiC, with one of the pen being a stylus. This pen would fail "The Gadgeteer" creak test, with the pen clip squeaking and the pen rattling in the in the chamber. However, I like the feel of the pen in my hand. It is not heavy, in fact very light, but the size is just right for a comfortable grip. The tip of the stylus is smooth, as good as a Lamy one I am currently using.

For those who always forget where they place their stylus, you'll be able to locate the Yoka 4-way stylus a lot faster. They come in bright flourescent colors, like yellow, green and orange. There are more colours, I cannot recall all of them.

Now, the million dollar question ... where to get the stylus?

Well, according to Pedang Timur you'll have to drive to Bangi to get the Yoka's. There's a stationery store named SMART in the Warta Supermarket shopping complex. Those interested can head south (from KL that is) to Bangi and buy the value for money stylus. Be warned that the highway toll will cost more than the stylus :)

P/S: ... Pedang Timur ... wanna arrange for a bulk buy? :)
