Sony CLIÉ T or NR Series PDA
Generally when I am looking for a replacement stylus for any PDA, I am wanting
something that will not only look more aesthetically pleasing, but that will
also add a bit of weight to the original. If neither of those needs are met,
then I would hope that there would be some other compelling reason to purchase

$15.00 for? It packs a tiny ball-point pen underneath the top-cap and a metal reset
pin which unscrews from the bottom. There are also a plethora of cool colors you can choose from,
and as an added bonus, it also has a "floating" style tip. Are
these features worth the extra money? Let’s take a look…

The Brando fits perfectly in the NR70V’s silo, as you would expect it to.
However, I can’t help but wish that it weighed a little bit more and had a more
substantial writing tip. I also feel that at $15 it is a bit too expensive for
what it offers.
