    From the rumored specs it seems the tablet will not have a pen like most tablet PCs.

    Does anybody know if the tablet will use any sort of pen input?

    If not then I would be disappointed that the tablet is not aimed at artist.

    Everything is a rumor until tomorrow. But if it doesn't come with a pen, there will be 3rd party ones you could get.

    At a guess, and given Steve Job's dislike for the stylus, I think it's unlikely. But let's wait and see...

    iPen will be out in winter of 2011.

    They will introduce a special integrated version in late 2011 with the IS designation.

    the iPen IS will come with the second edition iPads.

    "Who wants a stylus? You have to get 'em and put 'em away and you lose them. YUCK. No body wants a stylus." - Steve Jobs at Macworld 2007.

    Then again, he also said reading was dead and that iPod would never have video.

    That comment was in relation to a phone. And modified iPhones/Touches are being used with capacative styluses at Apple stores. (Which may well get swapped out for tablets - we'll see).
