Explanation:
Se refiere al bolígrafo o lápiz de plástico con el cual se "escribe" sobre la pantalla táctil de organizadores como Psion o Palm Pilot.

La palabra que más se utiliza es "lápiz", como en el caso del Palm Pilot, aunque algunos sitios utilizan el término inglés, "stylus", como podrás ver en los vínculos adjuntos.

Un saludo.
