I have to agree here. Styli are more a hindrance than a help. I find  
I'm always leaving my stylus or retracted pen somewhere and looking  
for another.
A stylus wouldn't be such a problem if there was a place in the  
device to store it.  General users haven't had to use a stylus in  
years. The UI for most
phones has been either a keypad or finger for a while now.  If the  
GTA03 is going to use a stylus, is it possible to have the shell  
molded with a holder built-in ?
