    Hi All
    Can anyone tell me if the pen from a Note 10.1 will work with my Galaxy Note 2?
    Why? A full sized pen would be more comfortable in the hand for extended use.
    Thanks

    Should work. The Note 2 can also interact with the even older S-Pen of the original Note so I don't thing there should be an issue. AFAIK any WACOM pen will work (which means the S-Pens would work on the Windows Surface Tablets that support WACOM as well).

    I have moved this thread into the Android Lounge as it's a pretty general android question.

    Hope this is alright and that it helps :)

    If it uses pressure - even an old Palm Stylus should work.

    No it doesn't. An S-Pen won't even work on a non WACOM device, like for example the SIII or a Galaxy Tab. It would only work on the Note range. Its a special capacitive pen which the screen detects. Pressure does not work on capacitive screens. I don't think any mainstream manufacturer uses resistive screens (uses pressure) anymore.
