December 3, 2012 - Written By Tom Dawson

It’s getting really close to Christmas now folks, and there’s only so long left for you to grab all those presents that you need to get for the whole family. It can be hard to find presents for us Android lovers as, realistically, we already have it all ourselves. However, there are some things that are still great buys for the tech lovers in your life. Kicking off today, here at Android Headlines we’re going to bring you a gift idea a day in the run up to Christmas and we hope you can find something for your loved ones – or just something for yourself.

Without further a do, here’s the first in a long line of gift ideas from Android Headlines, the Bamboo Solo Stylus. Join us as we take a look at why a Stylus might be a good gift to give this Xmas.

For those who like to take down quick notes without having to deal with the hassle of Android’s onscreen keyboard, a decent stylus can be just the thing. They might only be capacitive Styli but Wacom are the guys behind the Bamboo range and they’ve been making professional tools for artists for a long time now. Besides, we can’t all have a Galaxy Note in our pockets – and not all of us want to either. There are now a lot of apps for Android that take advantage of a Stylus, allowing you to take quicker notes and draw rough diagrams. The Solo range comes in a variety of colors and if you’re looking to upgrade there is also the Bamboo Duo that comes packing a ballpoint pen as well. It’s not only productivity that a Stylus can provide but it also makes games a lot easier to use, like Puzzle games and of course, Draw Something is wonderful with a Stylus. With the Bamboo Solo you can take quick notes and add a bit of style to your Android gear, it works perfectly with both smartphones and tablets – it’ll also improve your score on Fruit Ninja a whole lot.
