Microsoft is constantly looking at refining their Surface Pen, and their latest idea would make the control device a better mouse replacement.
Microsoft envisions adding a touch-sensitive retention clip (yellow) to the stylus, which can then be used in lieu of a scroll wheel. They note that a scroll wheel on a mouse makes it very easy to navigate long web pages while using a stylus normally means having to very precisely access the scroll bars.
Adding a convenient scroll function to the pen does appear to address one of the big issues I have using the pen as my primary input device day to day. Is this a feature our readers would pay extra for? Let us know below.
