    Hi everyone!

    I own an Asus Memo Pad 10 (ME102A) which I would like to use for sketching and drawing. I got both Bamboo Paper and Autodesk Sketchbook installed on it, and I was now looking for a good stylus. I would like to find a pressure-sensitive one with Bluetooth (e. g. Wacom Bamboo stylus fineline), but I doubt there is any compatible model around for my tablet.

    Could you please tell me if there is a compatible Bluetooth stylus indeed? and if not, could you suggest me a GOOD capacitive stylus, preferrably with a fine tip, to sketch with?

    Welcome to the forum

    Because you have a tablet that doesn't have the same type of digitizer as (for instance) a Samsung Galaxy Pro, I'm not certain what blue tooth would do for you. But if you are looking for a stylus with a fine line capability this is about as good as it gets. (the Pro model) http://www.adonit.net/jot/

    Thank you leeshor,

    I was almost going for the Adonit Jot Pro, but I'm still unconvinced about the disc point design, I've heard it's relatively easy to break it with frequent usage.
    As a last possible alternative in my reasearch I found the Just Mobile AluPen digital stylus http://www.just-mobile.eu/ipad/alupen-digital.html, which though I don't know if is compatible with my tablet (although it doesn't require Bluetooth or proprietary apps apparently, and it is said to work on almost all Android devices).
    Anyone about this model? Otherwise, I'd plainly go for the Adonit Jot Pro

    I have heard about several fine point devices but not that one. I have been using the Jot Pro for several years on several different tablets without an issue. I don't take really good care of it either.
