Finally manage to buy a Wacom Inkling http://www.wacom.com/en/Products/Inkling.aspx - I've been on the fence regarding this little gadget for months as it seems rather hard to find and the reviews have been rather mixed, and now that I've decided to buy one, I can confirm that it's not really worth it and i should have spent my money on a new digital camera instead.
