This is the TAD. I was sent a few of these to review and, once
they popped out of the envelope, a lot of my colleagues thought they were ..
something else. I’ll not say exactly what, suffice to say that it rhymes
with rock king.
The TAD is an accessory for a variety of people. If you’ve got long nails and
you’re tired of breaking or damaging them on phone keys, if you don’t want to

Or, as we showed on the video above, you can slide in your
stylus and do one-fingered stylus navigation. This is good if you find your
thumb covering up the screen when not using a TAD.
The TAD is one of those accessories that will be invaluable to
some and puzzling to others, however I can’t deny that using a touch-screen
phone was quite refreshing and easy with the TAD. This is ideal for people who
just hate getting that stylus out out and looking "geeky", plus it’ll suite
people who do use the stylus and would like to try a one-fingered
Retailing as I type for £2.99 it’s certainly cheap enough to try even if you’re
not 100% sure. :)
