Adonit launches Droid, the first micro precision disc stylus for Android devices

Stylus manufacturer, Adonit, is pleased to announce the UK availability of the first micro precision disc stylus, Droid for Android. It is the first stylus in the market designed specifically with Android users in mind and the Droid is available for £19.99/$24.99 from Amazon.

 Featuring a newly engineered 4.75mm non-removable micro-size disc, the Droid provides unmatched precision and is 32% smaller than previous precision disc styluses; perfect for your mobile. This allows users to write with ease and exactly where the stylus is placed on the touchscreen device.

With a PET material precision disc, the Droid has been designed to never scratch your glass touchscreen so there is no risk of damage or marks on the screen. The dampening tip also helps to provide a more natural writing experience so ideas, notes and doodles can be focused on without distraction or frustrating mistakes.

The ultra slim, stylish design with a 7mm diameter and weighing just 13g is well-balanced and light for daily use and makes an ideal travel accessory. For an even easier travelling experience, the Droid’s carrying clip means that it can be clipped to clothing or bags for easy access and to prevent rooting through bags when on a flight or a train.

Droid empowers Android users to unlock a new level of creative and productive capabilities on their mobile or tablet devices. With no batteries or pairing required, the Droid can be used by simply touching the tip to the screen and writing, drawing or creating, saving time and effort and allowing the stylus to act as a natural extension of the finger providing a precise point of contact on the screen.

Jasper Li, CTO for Adonit commented, “A stylus should enhance the user’s experience with technology. With the launch of Droid, we wanted to make the best stylus possible for Android users to unlock the power of creativity on their mobile device. The design of the new micro precision disc provides users exceptional control and precision on the screen. Users will be able to draw, mark finite details, write, or simply maneuver through their Android devices seamlessly with the Droid.”

Versatile apps

Whether in a board room meeting, a lecture hall, noting down recipes in the kitchen or sketching new designs, the Droid makes life more convenient. Using apps such as PowerPoint and OneNote, handwritten notes can be taken for business, studying or leisure. If looking for a more creative use, the Droid works with apps including Autodesk SketchBook allowing users to create sketches, paintings and illustrations on the move.

Android compatible

Droid was created exclusively for Android high resolution touchscreen devices and is compatible with many models including Samsung, Huawei, HTC, Sony, LG, and Asus. For an up-to-date list of compatible devices, please see here.
