    I received an email from them today. They told me it would be about a month before my replacement will be shipped.

    @pappyxmas, do you know if the new replacements are higher than version A01? Their previous fix didn't work well. thanks.

    From everything I've read, the latest is A01.

    Was wondering if a stylus from another company, say Sony would work on the V8P? There seems to be a fair amount of ditizer type pens out there, but would one work? Thanks

    you can't fit the tyre of an F-250 Truck to a Smart car even though they are both round, black and made out of the same material.

    only the Dell Pen will work as an active Pen on the Dell Tablet

    Thanks for the answer and the interesting comparison. I think i am going to be returning the tablet today. I have been plagued with issues from the start. I think i ended up with a bad one.

    Remember it's a Synaptics pen on a Synaptics Clearpad capacitive digitizer. If another company out there besides Dell decides to use Clearpad you will be able to use their pens also.
