Alternate case for the Neo1973, with a secure method for storing the stylus when not in use.
1. The stylus is pushed end-on into a round hole slightly larger than the stylus and retained by a spring-loaded clip at the end.
1a.A microswitch inside the stylus sleeve triggers power on/wake from hibernate when the stylus is removed (via an ACPI event, likely)
2. The stylus is stored by pushing laterally into a C-section clip.
3. The stylus is attached to the lanyard (while low cost/simple, the stylus is relatively delicate - this may not be suitable)
Leave your nickname here if you are interested in having one made. This is not an order form, but is intended to gauge interest before effort is expended designing the case.
|16.||ShakataGaNai — I'd rather not have automagic turn on w/ stylus removal.|
|17.||Sin - at least for me, losing the stylus is quite possible|
|19.||Jackcday - Mda Vario has a cool telescoping stylus which allows for smaller stylus, but it gets bigger when you remove it.|
|21.||oz1lln - automatic startup of the device, when pulling out the stylus, would be great|
|23.||wurstwolf - sending an event when pulling out the stylus would be great, that would offer the possibility to configure the phones behaviour. My favourite would be the deactivation of the phones keylock, but that's a software idea ;)|
|26.||User:Solarius - I thought this was already built-in. This is quite essential (in my opinion) because stylys can be lost easily.|
