Kyocera SmartPhone QCP-6035 stylus in Compaq iPAQ H3955
My Compaq iPAQ H3955 Pocket PC PDA has a fairly nice stylus. It has a decent weight to make you feel like you are holding a pen. And yet, it is not small and thin enough to make you feel like you a poking the screen with a tiny pin. But today is not a good day, because I lost the stylus.
It just drives me crazy without a stylus, because I do quite a bit of writing on the iPAQ. So with no stylus, all the ideas in my head remained stuck.
I finally found a replacement. I have three styluses from my KYOCERA SmartPhone QCP-6035. Two styluses aren't being used. It fits into the stylus slot of the iPAQ just perfectly. It sticks out a little bit (see picture). This stylus is also a lot lighter than the original, so it feels a little weird. You'll have to press harder with a feather light stylus. The food thing is that screen taps aren't as loud as the original stylus. The PDA is now a lot more useable in discrete situations.
I've recently lost the SmartPhone stylus as well. So I was again out looking for a new iPAQ stylus. The thing with technology is that they keep coming out with new PDA models and making the old models obsolete. I had no luck finding a stylus for the iPAQ 3955.
Instead I found a stylus/pen pack for the Palm Tungsten T5. These styluses actually come with quills for the Tungsten E, E2, and Zire 72 as well. But I found the Tungsten T5 quill fit the iPAQ 3955 the best. The stylus is made out of metal with a hard plastic tip. The weight is almost perfect, must more balanced than the plastic stylus from the SmartPhone. And a pen under the quill is great for emergencies.
The only problem? The quill is too small, which causes the stylus to slide out from the PDA. So I wrapped a few layers of adhesive tape around the quill. Now it locks perfectly. Just don't use too much, otherwise it'd be too tight.
