    Just wondering if there are any alternative better pens out there? The tip on mine moves up and down a bit and kind of annoying.

    Most any Wacom pen will work. I use one of mine that I had from a prior convertible Tablet PC and it works just fine.

    WACOM sells Bamboo replacement pens. These might be worth a try, pressure sensitivity may not be a guarantee.

    Wacom recently started selling the Bamboo Stylus Feel for devices using the Wacom Feel IT technology. Two versions starting at $39.99 . These are a capped stylus with 1024 levels of pressure sensitivity.
    As far as the tip moving up and down that is the pressure sensor, and all these types of stylus are going to do that.

    Well, I know the pen from my Intuos 4 DOESN'T work so we can't assume all Wacom pens are compatible. Be sure to check before you buy.

    They appear to be, and since the Surface Pro, as well as the Galaxy Note 10.1 incorporate the Wacom Feel IT technology, they would seem to be an ideal alternative. Of course, I really detest the term sharing, like we are in some kind of AA (Android Anonymous) meeting here :)

    Anyone know if there's an eraser function on the back of the bamboo feel? There is no description of the functionality on the Wacom site. I like that it can use a hard or soft tip; though I wonder if you can just get spare tips for that thing and put them in the stock MS pen (which I don't mind at all).

    The Bamboo Feel does not have eraser functionality unfortunately. I would have though the original MS Stylus would have come with both types of tips, my Galaxy Note 10.1 did and I much prefer the softer tip. Samsung released a stylus, but I think in Korea only, that has an eraser. Even though the offers I've read say it is made for the Feel IT technology I'm a little leary.
