Remember the brand Genius? At least at one point you would have owned a mouse from this manufacturer. A no frills low cost point and click mouse that did its job.
Looking at making a comeback in the peripheral segment, the company is now involved in the stylus market with the introduction of two retractable touch pen GP-B200 and GP-B200A for iOS and Android-based smartphone devices.
By the looks of the apperance looks similar to ball pen with the manufacturer claiming it to be “Incredibly smooth, accurate, and simple as a pen.”
The models are equipped with special nib that eliminates the need for replacement which can be due to wear and offers a retractable design that ensures the pen nib is protected when not in use.
Powering the pen is a built-in rechargeable battery with 15-minutes charge time gives 8 hours of continuous writing. Colour options are available to match your device shell, after market stylus are in vogue especially if you have larger digital displays, but accuracy and ease of use will be contentious, we have yet to have a go at the Genius Touch Pen- lets see if they make them like the mouse they make, cheap and does-the-job.
