While touchscreen devices do not require additional tools to use, the new Barnes & Noble Vara Stylus brings with it the superior advantages of enhanced accuracy and a noteworthy absence of frustrating finger smudges on a display. Vara’s capactive tip slides smoothly against a tablet’s screen while pricisely mimicking the pressure of the user’s finger. Inspired by the shape of a carpenter’s pencil, Vara has been touted as the first truly ergonomic stylus on the market. Its soft-touch coating ensures a reliable and comfortable grip, and an integrated clip allows the stylus to be attached to the inside of any NOOK cover.

The Barnes & Noble Vara Stylus is currently available for $19.95 through Barnes and Noble’s retail stores and B&N online (www.barnesandnoble.com).
