The Color Purple... and silver too.

Several people have asked for a purple or silver HAND Stylus. For the initial run of styluses, I'll be sticking with the colors I'm presently offering. If the HAND Stylus should successfully find a niche in the marketplace beyond Kickstarter, then I may be able to add other colors. – Steve

      Guy, the colors are matte black, and gloss and matte red, orange, blue, green, orange, and pink... although the pink has a purple tinge... perhaps I should call it Pinkle. Regards, Steve

      So what colors do you offer in the initial kickstarter run? Unless I'm colorblind and didn't know it, I do believe your picture on the project home page showed a purple stylus. Not that I want purple, but it would be nice to clarify what colors you do offer.

      Hey Steve, your hand stylus is going to be my first stylus. It will be great if you do offer silver as a color option. Thanks

      I'd be willing to pay a small premium for a purple stylus, as purple is my favorite colour and I've not ever seen a purple stylus that's worth picking up. Several quality stylus lines include a pink variant, but offering purple would definitely make HAND stand out even more.

      I'm disappointed that you state that you might try additional colours later on. This means to get what I *really* want I'll end up paying twice.

      Purple is/was my first choice. Couldn't believe that you didn't offer it. Like Katrina, I would like to be able to get it in purpose should you go in that direction. Green/orange are so ordinary!

      All good questions and, right now, I don't' have good answers... The HAND Stylus is already doing far better on Kickstarter than I might have imagined... so, it's hard to predict what will happen beyond Kickstarter. – Steve

      That would be great! Not only is purple my favorite color, it means something to me too. I have a purple skin on my iPad. A matching stylus would be perfect.

      My questions:

      1. What do you define as niche market? (because I know many people who would use these colors, and clearly they are being requested)

      2 . How long would you wait beyond the initial offering to put these colors to market?

      3. Would supporters be able to request these colors and wait for the release?
