The stylus on the surface pro works on the Samsung ATIV. In fact, it seems to be interchangeable with the s-pen.
Odd, since usually Wacom styluses don't work between models. But there ya go. :)

I think any Wacom stylus will work. I have an S-Pen that works and I also have a stylus from an old Toshiba M200 that also works. Since I had 2 extra Toshiba stylus', I now have 3 extra pens for when I inevitably lose the Surface pen.

Hmm, provided the next S-RT surface supports the Wacom stylus I may look into getting one and then getting an S-Pen to go with it. Can anyone confirm if the S-Pen works on the S-RT please?Windows Phone Central Moderator "Fortune cookie said: 'Outlook not so good'.

I bought one Stylus at the Microsoft Store. It has a round end where you can move the computer around instead of your finger. I like it because then my finger prints don't cover the screen. One bad part is that you can't write on the screen with it. I have to use the surface pen for that. The other side of the stylus is a real pen, not a pen for writing on the computer screen. I am looking for a hybrid of the surface pen and with a round end at the end so that you can use it to navigate on the screen. When I have the computer in laptop mode, docked with a type cover, I use my finger to navigate but when in tablet mode on my surface pro, I use a pen.Twitter: @rdubmu

Actually, newer Wacom pens (and others' pens) do work across capacitive touch devices, although it does depend on each device supporting it, and on the availability of drivers that enable software capacites. Each software company -Adobe, for instance, has to work with the hardware company to design and produce the appropriate drivers.X-Box Music Pass Rocks

It's not a useless fact, at least not for me. My Samsung ATIV came with a nice but half size digitizer, and the only alternative they offer is the Series 7 pen, which lacks the rubber coated tip. I might consider the Surface digitizer as an option. I'm a bit confused about how they have it listed on the MS site as "works exclusively with the surface Pro".
Regardless, thanks for posting!

I have an Intuos 3. I'll see if it works tomorrow.
If it does, that would rock.
I don't really like the Surface pen because there's only a right and left click. I want a middle click.Talk to me about Windows Phone, Windows 8, XBOX, art, animation, design, or anything! Be sure to follow me on Twitter and friend me on Facebook (say you're from here or I may not accept)

Also, to the person who said that you can use a Wacom pen on any capacitive screened tablet provided that drivers are available, that is completely false. There needs to be a Wacom digitizer layer there. However, Wacom does sell the Bamboo Stylus, as mentioned, which is just a standard capacitive stylus and doesn't give nearly the same accuracy.

One of the main reasons I chose the Surface Pro is because of a pressure sensitive stylus.
I hope that more graphics apps het on board and fully support the pressure sensitivity. And then I hope we get a wider variety of pens made available.Talk to me about Windows Phone, Windows 8, XBOX, art, animation, design, or anything!

From what I've read on various boards the only pens that work from Wacom are the "Bamboo Feel" series ones. The older or more complex (airbrush style etc) will not. Also the Samsung s-pens will work no problem. Now to figure out where to buy a feel in Canada...
