    Guys have u saw the Spectre x360 the new convertible ultrabook from HP? Well, it uses an Active Stylus from Synaptics named as HP Active Stylus, maybe it works with Venue PRO.
    Here is the link to buy it:

    Sadly it still requires a AAAA battery, that also doesnt sell in my country D=

    I would be very happy to try it but this pen isnt being sold in my country. If anyone try could please put the experiencie here? Thanks

    I think that there is a good chance that it will work with the DV8P, as the Dell active stylus will work with the HP Pavilion x2 tablet. But would need to be verified.

    Having said that, the Dell active stylus is around half the price of the HP . . . .

    Yeah the price is a thing, but if it doesnt hover click, and the baterry last longer worth it =D.
    Edit:
    Unfortunately it will take so much time for me to put a hands on that pen... if someone tried at a store os something like this pls give us some feedback.

    Yep, the newest version Dell Synaptics active stylus for the DV8P (the half silver, half black stylus). Nor did I have an issue with the A02 all-black version.

    mobiletechreview used both latest Dell pen and HP pen on Spectre x360. They mention the Dell pen (new silver one) is actually much better

    Thanks for that info. re the HP active stylus as compared to the Dell--was wondering if the extra cost for the HP stylus was worth it. According to the reviewer, seemingly not.

    How did you resolve your Dell Stylus issue with the HP Spectre? I'm having the same problem?
