HP Elite x3 Passive Stylus?

HP Recommended
HP Elite x3
Microsoft Windows 10 (32-bit)

We are potentaily looking to buy these for our busniess but handwriting functionality for note and doing drawings is very high up on the list.

 

I have read that there should be a HP Elite x3 Passive Stylus available that will enable this but can not find it in the UK store. Is this going to be available any time soon?

 

Do other Styluses work with the phone and what is the experience like? Is it just like using your finger or is it good enough to replace a pen and paper for note taking and making sketches and diagrams, etc?

 

Thanks.

Hello,

There isn't an "official" passive stylus available with the x3.  However, any passive stylus should work with the x3.  I am using a passive stylus without issues.  I don't think you should have any issues drawing or taking notes.  However, the screen is only 6" so you don't have a lot of room for complicated drawings.

Thanks for the reply.

 

Very strange about the stylus as I've seen quite a few anouncments about it and even found one here
https://www.shop.bt.com/products/hp-elite-x3-passive-stylus-v8z60aa-C951.html

 

I'm guessing as it is passive it will only be as good as any other passive stylus?

 

I've read that there was a Windows Ink implementation as part of the Windows 10 Anniversary Update. Is that available / relevent to the HP Elite x3?

Hi,

 

Yes, only a bit better your finger. Probably we have to wait.

i have a couple of windows 10 mobile devices and one note doesn't work for drawing on any of them.  It does work pretty well on my note 8 unfortunately...
