    It appears the two stylii differ only in appearance. The newer silver stylus is made to match the appearance of the 13. The descriptions are identical, same features, same buttons, etc., just different colored barrel. I have no proof of this though.

    Different revisions always look the same. The question is, is it a new revision? We can at least say this much, if they make one for the Latitude 13, to match its design, then they at least manufactured them only now, so they are new ones, maybe not a new revision though... Lets just wait and see.

    At the very bottom of the page it shows compatibility for Venue 8 (no Pro) which is an Android tablet. However in the Tech Specs tab, it lists 11 Pro, 8 Pro, Latitude 13 7000. So I guess I'll wait till one of our fellow members bites and reports back with results!

    Edit: Just got off chatting with one of the Dell people, confirmed this is for the 8, 11 Pros and Latitude, not the listed Venue 8 Android tablet. Also confirmed this is the newest revision of the pen after Rev 02.

    I can confirm that it works with 'old' Venue 11. I can also confirm that it is great. It's really what the pen should have been to begin with. Seriously, writes just like, or better than, may Surface Pro 3.

    I tossed the old Dell pen it replaced in the garbage as there was a night and day difference.

    Hi!

    I just got my stylus for dell venue pro 11. Stylus version: A02. I have some problems. When I open the virtual keyboard I can not select hand writing.
    The other one, in OneNote I can not use two button mode. (lower button for select and upper button for delete).
    Anyone can help me?

    How is the pen nib in new stylus?
    Is it from hard plastic like the old one?
    Does it have any friction?

    Unfortunatelly, I did not have the old one so I can not compare to each other. Nib is some kind of hard plastic. I have a matt screen protector so it feels like I writting on a paper.
