    Does anyone know of another touch pen for tablet (Asus MemoPad FHD10) than with thick soft tip? Not to get used to draw this "rubber". I saw the one with plastic wheel off the tip, but that's not it. Looking for a normal pencil with a thin tip, something like a Samsung or Dell tablet. Because I do not want to buy a new device. Is there such?
    thx for advice

    No not really. Thin tips works for the Notes because the digitizer is a special WACOM-made one which supports those kinds of special tips. The digitizer detects the S Pen itself. If you try to use the S Pen or similar WACOM pens on another tablet that does not have WACOM-enabled digitizers (like your ASUS), they won't work. For example, the S Pen won't work on a Galaxy S5. However AFAIK it will work on a Windows Surface Pro since that also uses a WACOM digitizer.

    Basically, that means that unless you buy a device which is specially sold to support those thin type stylus, you can't use them.

    That's bluetooth+accelerometer+touch sensor pen. Not exactly a 'stylus' by basic definition. Could work, not sure. It's especially designed for iOS compatibility as far as I can tell. You'd need software compatibility for that sort of thing usually, since the device needs to interpret the info the pen sends.
