It is so easy to go to http://www.google.com/products?q=stylus&show=dd&scoring=p and after a few clicks get some stylus'.  DON'T, unless they are specific to your Tablet.  Why, you ask?  Because each screen of a Tablet has a different hardness.  Stylus's are actually designed to be softer than the glass.  This way, you don't make permanent scratch marks your tablet screens.  Since each tablet screen has a different hardness, you have to make sure your point is just enough softer to both be usable yet not damaging to the glass.  The tip actually is supposed to "ablate" over time.  If you already ordered cheapies, I would suggest just shipping them back.  The cost of a new stylus is under $10.  The cost of a tablet screen is $2000.  Is it worth it?  You decide.  Use Froogle, but just be sure to get the right softness.
