    A real pen for your phone!

    I never use my stylus so it's a waste of space. I recall that Cross makes a pen to replace the stylus on some pda's.

    It won't fit on the Saga but it got me thinking. I took apart a pen with a thin ink cartridge; actually I had to take several apart. I found one that slips right down the hole snugly. Cut to length, I'm going to super glue the piece from the clip to top. I may take the cap off the Saga stylus and glue it on for a clean look. The key will probably to leave a small hole so the ink can be replaced with air as it is consumed. I'll post pics when it's done.

    I'll always have a pen... so long as it doesn't leak.

    I think several phones have styli that have integrated pens. I'm a little surprised the Saga didn't.

    I've been working to get something to attach to the top of the pen securely. So far no luck. I'll keep trying.

    The Pen. Basically an insert that is the right thickness and one that writes nicely.

    The top is also the cap of a pen shortened a bit which has a hole exactly the size of the insert and fits tightly. It also has a very small hole on the top to vent.
