    The thread title says it all. Supposedly, DirectStylus support is built in at the processor level on the K1. I just ordered a replacement DirectStylus from Amazon to try this out when I get my N9.

    Oh, and I realize the K1 in the Shield is different from the K1 in the N9, but I thought that all K1s had DirectStylus support.

    I absolutely want to know the answer to this question. I like my nVidia Shield tablet OK, but the Nexus 9 is thinner and faster and is packed with delicious pixels -- but one of the reasons I went with the Shield was the excellent fine-point stylus support.

    I tweeted at Andrew and Jerry today, and Andrew said no, but he didn't sound very sure.

    There's also the issue of how the display's digitizer functions. Some seem to act like a narrow stylus is on the screen regardless of finger, thumb, stylus bluntness.

    It might work like a normal stylus, but it probably doesn't have the Directstylus software to enable high speed accuracy or palm rejection. Based on what I've seen the touchscreens are calibrated to certain size "touch" targets, so some will work if the touch is finger size but not smaller than that. Others may respond to fine tip touch.

    Palm rejection is the thing I'm most interested in.

    Palm rejection was done via software on the shield tablet so I very much doubt it will carry over as it was Nvidia who did this

    I wouldn't count on this. The DirectStylus 2 is from the NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet and being HTC shell it probably won't be supported.
