For Samsung, the stylus isn’t just a cute throwback to the glory days of the Palm Pilot — it’s also the wave of the future. The popular electronics manufacturer has filed for a patent for a new stylus that includes a clip that serves as a headset and can be used to make calls without an earpiece. SlashGear says that Samsung refers to the headset communication tech used in the device as “NFC” even it’s more than likely a variation of Bluetooth technology. Engadget writes that the technology for the device is well within the bounds of reality, meaning Samsung may very well pull the trigger on actually producing the “pen headset” (smart pen? penblet?) in the future. Samsung is betting big on a retro stylus revival as the electronic pen is featured prominently in its Galaxy Note series.
