    The nose of my pen is attached really, really well. Won't unscrew. (This is the part that's about 1/2" up from the tip of the metal barrel (where the nib has broken off).

    Just saying the obvious though, why not get a used pen on eBay? There Bamboo Smart ink is even a better option. Again, I know my suggestion doesn't add any new information.

    Samsung X isn't expected to be announced until next year, let alone released. It sounds like the exec touting it, did so before they had any solid fold-able display tech.
    As for Andromeda? Who knows? Everything reported about it so far has just be speculation using patents as 'evidence', which we all know often means diddly squat.

    Steve:

    Thanks for the inspiration from that picture. Unfortunately, even when I use as much pressure as I can exert -- nothing. Except a pen that looks like this now..... I used various Vice-Grips/pliers, etc & all of them were covered when used. I think I'll take nnthemperor's advice....

    @crp852 : That's very strange! The nose-piece on my pen was tight, but it unscrewed easily with the aid of a rubber glove. I'm sorry that you ended up scarring your pen.

    <<...There Bamboo Smart ink is even a better option...>>

    ...I agree that the Bamboo pen is excellent and may feel / perform better for you. Whether you choose that or a used pen, good luck...

    Oops.. Different models. Note that one of them has a flat section next to the buttons.

    Looking back over the posts, a thought just hit me: unscrew in the opposite direction I've tried so far....I'll try that when I get home from work tonight.
