Evernote and Adonit today announced a partnership that will see the latter producing the new Jot Script Evernote Edition Stylus, which has a tip that measures just 1.9mm. The large, inaccurate tip of current capacitive styluses is a common complaint that the Jot Script aims to overcome.

The stylus uses Adonit’s newly developed Pixelpoint technology, which utilizes the accelerometer, Bluetooth, and Adonit’s SDK to communicate the location of the stylus tip to compatible apps like Evernote’s Penultimate.

In a first for any active stylus, Penultimate’s digital inking features pair with Adonit’s Bluetooth-enabled Pixelpoint technology for accuracy previously unattainable on any touch screen. With Penultimate’s new Zoom feature, the interaction between app and stylus becomes dynamic. As the Jot Script’s fine tip approaches the screen, Penultimate responds by enlarging the writing space for better visual feedback. And as the user writes, the digital paper drifts along with them mimicking the natural feeling of handwriting.

In addition to a fine point, the Jot Script features a metal finish, ribbed grip, and a weighted hand balance designed for taking notes. It is powered by a standard AAA battery and uses Bluetooth 4.0 to connect to iPads and iPhones. It is compatible with the third-generation iPad and later, the iPad mini, and the iPhone 5 and later.

The Jot Script can be pre-ordered from either Evernote or Adonit for $74.95 and has an estimated ship time of three to four weeks.

Evernote has also introduced a number of other products in its Evernote Market, including backpacks, scanners, t-shirts, and other accessories.

Who wants a stylus!?

God gave us 10 styluses—let’s not invent another.

For those of us that weren't taught to write by dipping our finger tips in ink a fine tip pen provides immensely better results.

Me. I would like a stylus. Hand writing notes with your finger does not work.

Is this exclusive to Penultimate only? Adonit needs to open up their SDK to other developers, or this stylus will flop.

Adonit Jot Script + Notability = WIN

Sure, because writing class notes using your finger is awesome.

What you responded to was something that Steve Jobs had said. It did not originate with me.

Google it.

Now that Steve's gone I think we can move on and explore different things instead of slavishly adhering to his vision.
