Default Stylus for Archos 70 ...

I'm looking for a good stylus for my Archos 70 Internet Tablet 250GB.

I just found out that there are bluetooth styli! Would these work with the Archos 70 IT?

Also, I'd like a stylus with a fine point, so I can easily choose small font links.

I will use the stylus for typing (on-screen keyboard), clicking on links (small fonts!), gaming and drawing.

The 70 has a capacitive screen. So ordinary styli don't work. You'll need to find one made for capacitive screens.

That's exactly what I'm looking for. I've found quite a few capacitive styi.

I want something with a fine tip for detailed drawing, and pointing to small fonts.

Also wonder if the bluetooth styli will work with the Archos 70 IT ....

Any stylus made for the iPhone&iPod Touch will work.

Any recommendations for a fine-tipped capacitive stylus?

Default Isn't That an Oxymoron?

In my experience "fine-tipped capacitive stylus" is an oxymoron. The nature of a capacitive touch screen pretty much requires a relatively fat tip. There are some devices with hybrid screens that combine capacitive touch with input tablet technology (magnetic field based, I think) to try to create the best of both worlds, but the screen has to be designed for that.
