    Do the Wacom One Pen works on the Boox? And it’s also compatible with the HP Zbook pen nibs? That should mean it would also work on the Rm.

    Does it have two side buttons? Looks like. That would be very nice if true. The HP pen is nice, but has only one side button with an additional eraser on back.

    Yes, the Wacom One pen works great on my Boox Nova3 and the HP Zbook X2 nibs fit fine, no issues. One side button, not two. It works out of the box as an eraser on my Boox. No end eraser, of course.

    I looked for a Zbook pen but it’s unobtainable, out of stock everywhere and nobody wants to sell their used one, apparently. I have a Samsung Tab S6 Lite S-Pen on order which Voja at My Deep Guide recommends most highly. He also recommends the grey Zbook nibs for it (they fit).

    My Samsung Tab S6 Lite S-Pen arrived three weeks ahead of Samsung’s estimate. Had I known I would have just waited instead of buying the Wacom One pen for the interim.

    Anyway, with the Zbook X2 grey nib inserted I can certainly understand why My Deep Guide rated it the best pen/nib combo. Really nice; I especially like that I don’t have to press as hard to get the line to thicken as I write. Yeah, I’ll go with this one.

    The only problem is that it was too skinny for the pen loop on the cover. No clip, either. So I put a couple of staples in the loop to tighten it up. The pen won’t slip now. :thumbsup:

    @Bronsky - Yeah, it’s the Nova 3 with just the color added, looks like. $80 added to the price, too, but since I predicted $100 more it almost feels like a bargain. I definitely would have spent the extra when I bought my Nova 3. Oh well, color e-ink will be even nicer by the time I’m ready for upgrade. :thumbsup:

    I altered the thread title and at the top of the first post I added a link to the color Nova write up by @Bronsky

    Preordered the Nova 3 Color!:vbcool:. The Samsung S6 Lite pen is no longer on sale. So, I'm holding on that upgrade for now. Will the Boox work with my Note 10 S Pen?
