If you have a Coby MID7012, MID7016, MID7024, MID7125, MID8024, or MID8125 you have a resistive screen, which is the form of touch screen technology which uses pressure to connect two electronic layers inside the screen separated by a narrow gap. When your finger or a stylus presses on an area of the screen, these two layers are joined, sending the info to the Coby processor and translating it as an x/y coordinate input. This is different than the capacitive screens which require human or an electrically charged stylus to disturb the screen’s electrical current.
Even if your resistive screen is responsive to touch, keeping a stylus on hand so you’re always ready to jot a note or tap the touch screen without using your finger can be useful. These stylus are very well made and work very well, if all you want to do is find an alternative to pressing the onscreen keyboard. However, these stylus are totally useless for use with a drawing program because the rubber tip will not glide across the screen. If you use your Coby tablet outdoors and you are wearing gloves, these stylus are for you.
One reviewer said, “This is a very nice stylus with a soft rubber tip…the size does make the stylus much more easier to control so you’re more accurate with them. I’m glad I ordered the three pack because I can just keep one at work, one in the car, and one at home,” while another reviewer said, “These stylus are very well made and work very well, if all you want to do is find an alternative to pressing the onscreen keyboard.”
