Word is going around that HP’s upcoming webOS tablet, possibly dubbed the PalmPad, will support stylus input alongside the standard touch input. The rumor hints that the device will integrate a display that is capable of recognizing input via a Wacom pen or similar stylus devices. Such a move would help the PalmPad get one over Apple’s popular iPad, which was mainly designed for finger input, though there are certain companies that sell stylus pens for the iPad. The benefit of having a stylus would be that it could give more precise input for drawing and designing diagrams.
