I believe that is capacitive. Look at the http://adonit.net/jot/classic/ . They are more pen like than the rubber tipped things.

Cool/ thank you. That looks like what I want. I did some Googling and found that my local Bureau en Gros (Staples) seems to have them in stock for $19.05 - no waiting, no shipping, no customs.

I much prefer the Galaxy to the iPhone.

How long have you had the Galaxy Charlie? They take a little getting used to.

There is room in this world for both smart phones and iPhones.

I bought it. It's a really pretty aqua colour. It seems to work well. Thanks again, Frank.

I've had it for about a month now. Still cannot get used to it. Hate disappearing apps, miss multi-language key board, etc. Really missed the simplicity of the iPhone too.

Disappearing apps? You mean they aren't where you put them? Click the apps button and you should be able to see all of your apps.

I'm not sure what you mean by multi-language key board. If I want I hold finger on the "e" until it shows up, then slide my finger to it. If I want I use "o". That works for just about all the special letters/special characters.

If I want a number, I just leave my finger on the key with that number until it shows up. I can also switch to the number screen.

Glad you like it.

Mine is red, though since I got my Note tablet I don't use it.

Why don't you use it with the Note tablet?

Well, this will look a lot more professional when I hand a stylus to my client instead of telling him/her to sign with a finger.
