This attractive paintbrush stylus comes in 5 colors — cobalt blue, pink, red, silver, and charcoal. The Nomad FLeX and included case will retail for $29.00. The brush, which is constructed from precision-milled aluminum, includes a new, all-synthetic brush tip. Plus the Nomad FLeX handle is compatible with the Nomad Compose brush tips.
Best Buy’s willingness to carry the Nomad Brush shows that is no longer a niche product. Nomad Brush’s appearance at a big box retailer is further evidence of the iPad’s integration into popular culture. As iPad owners continue to experiment with their tablets it is likely that we will continue to see specific accessories tailored to a narrow purpose.
“We are thrilled to be partnering with Best Buy and to have the opportunity to share our newest paintbrush stylus with more consumers at a time when Microsoft is launching Windows 8 touchscreen-enabled devices like the Surface tablet, when iPad and iPhone users are at an all-time high and tablet devices are gaining in popularity,” states Don Lee, Founder of Nomad Brush.
We reviewed a similar Nomad Brush (PadGadget = 4.5 stars) and found the stylus was well-constructed and comfortable to hold. Sure, you can still paint with your finger, but using the Nomad Brush does a better job of re-creating how it feels to paint the traditional way, with paint and a canvas.
Don’t want to wait? The Nomad FLeX – Single is already for sale on the company website.
