Evernote and Adonit introduce new fine-point Bluetooth stylus

Evernote and accessory-maker Adonit announced today that they have teamed up to create a new Bluetooth stylus called the Jot Script Evernote Stylus. With its fine 1.9mm tip, it’s supposedly noticeably more accurate than capacitive styli.

The digital pen uses Adonit’s newly-developed Pixelpoint technology, which utilizes a combination of the device’s built-in accelerometer, Bluetooth, and Adonit’s frameworks to communicate the location of the stylus tip to compatible apps…

From the press release (via MacRumors):

“The Jot Script Evernote Edition Stylus was designed by Adonit to feel like your favorite pen. Its refined metal finish, ribbed grip, fine point, and weighted hand balance all reflect the quality that Adonit styluses are known for.

“Adonit developed Jot Script to be the ideal stylus for taking notes. We’ve stripped everything away so you can just focus on capturing your ideas,” said Kris Perpich, CXO at Adonit. “We partnered with Penultimate to focus on a deep integration of Jot Script into a great note taking experience. Our collaboration allowed us to step back and rethink the ideal digital note taking experience. It’s going to bring back the lost art of handwriting.”

The Jot Script is powered by a single standard AAA battery and uses Bluetooth 4.0 to connect to iPads and iPhones (in less than two minutes). It’s compatible with the third-gen iPad and later, the iPad mini, and the iPhone 5 and later.

The stylus also takes advantage of Penultimate’s new Zoom feature, which intelligently enlarges the writing space as the pen approaches the screen, for better visual feedback. And as the user writes, the digital paper drifts along with them.

If you’re interested in picking up a Jot Script, they can be pre-ordered from either Evernote or Adonit for $74.95, shipping will take three to four weeks. I love Adonit’s Jot Pro line of styli, so I can’t wait to see what this new one is capable of.

        Because he’s ready to be penetrated by the dude in the pic.

    glad to see this category seeing wide innovation. Still waiting for the universal, pressure sensitive, fine tip without a disc, works in drawing, CAD, and note taking apps pen. I’d give whoever accomplishes that first my money. Hope it happens soon!

      This has all you said. I’ve been holding off for something like that too, and I just pre-order this.

        Uhm, where on their site did you see them claiming it works in every category of apps?

        Adonit seems to be position this stylus for “note taking”. I think it’s only a matter of time (fingers crossed) before the disc-less pixel point makes its way into the JOT line of artist-centric styli… I will gladly throw my money at them when and if that happens!
