Nokia Capacitive Stylus SU-39 | Nokia’s Universal Stylus

The first thing my wife said to me when she was playing around with the Nokia N8was that she felt as though it needed a stylus. Maybe this was because she was so used to it on the Nokia N900 I have or maybe some of the aspects of the device aren’t quite as finger friendly as they could be. Well if you feel the same then check out this cracking little accessory which my buddy Devin stumbled upon – The Nokia Capacitive Stylus SU-39.

The Nokia Capacitive Stylus SU-39 is a very small, lightweight and slim stylus and works with both capacitive and resistive touch screens to provide accuracy on-the-go. It is compatible with all Nokia touch screen devices regardless of the type of touch screen they have. The Nokia Capacitive Stylus SU-39 is available in dark grey and features a short strap to make it easily attachable to your device.

The only problem I see with this accessory is the price point. Unofficially estimated to retail around £15 GBP, you’d have to be pretty keen to buy the SU-39.

How To Download Swype On The Nokia N8

Demoed on the Nokia C7 at Nokia World 2010 in London, Swype for Symbian^3 is now available via the Ovi Store. Swype provides a faster and easier way to input text on any screen. With one continuous finger or stylus motion across the screen keyboard, Swype ’s patented technology enables users to input words faster and easier than other input methods. However if you have the Nokia N8, you’ll notice that Swype is not yet available for you to download in the Ovi Store. So we’ve put together a short guide after the break to help you get Swype on your Nokia N8.

Firstly you need to log in to the Ovi Store on your desktop PC and adjust the settings to change your device from the Nokia N8 to the Nokia C7. Now search for Swype or click on this link. It will now give you the option to ‘send to mobile’. Choose this option and you will shortly receive a text with a download link. Click on this link and it will take you to a screen which will now let you download Swype to your Nokia N8. Once downloaded and installed, reboot your device and Swype will be available to access within the applications folder of your device.
