so heres this pen for the ipad/iphone that digitally captures your pen strokes and well you get the picture. now , the device should be around 99 dollars once released. heres the articles clip:
Want to write on your tablet without all of the requisite finger grease? How about a stylus? Too pedestrian? What about a Smart Pen? Better yet, what about the aPen A5 Smart Pen? eFun's peripheral includes a stylus and a receiver that hooks into your iPad or iPhone's 30 pin connector, digitizing your handwriting or drawings via a number of compatible apps, including the company's own free Studio Basic Light. The A5 is set, broadly, for a release some time in 2012, and should run you around $99 whenever it actually hits the market.

OTOH, a $10 accessory may be just as good...
I'm not sure how accurate the iPad's touchscreen is,
but it's quite possible the aPen will provide much higher resolution data than the built-in digitizer alone.

maybe but look at it this way, whatever your capturing using the device, u see also on the ipad. so if u have a device that captures better then the ipad but are drawing on the ipad, then ur still limited to the iPads resolution. i have a pen for my ipad that cost 6 bucks and its all good for me on sketch book pro

I haven't been able to find hard numbers, but the digitizer FEELS much clumsier than the screen.
Notice how nearly all styli for iDevices have a very blunt tip?
If you have any factual data on the digitizer res (or have seen or use a fine-tip stylus)
please do share
