Jot Touch manufacturer Adonit will be rubbing its hands with glee at Apple’s decision not to fit the iPad Mini with pressure sensitivity. The Jot Touch’s stylus has been expressly designed to offer the variable strokes that Apple has failed to include in its iPads, and in a way it feels like a pair of fingers thrust in the air at the fruity tech company.

At £75 a pop, this may sound like a lot for a stylus, especially compared to the 10-a-penny touchpens that you can pick up on eBay. In its favour though, the Jot Touch - necessarily - packs an impressive dollop of tech into a small form-factor.
