Any capacitive stylus sold in shops should work with it. They start at around 10$ and they have a demi-sphere of rubbery material on the tip. The main problem with them is that they aren't that accurate because the tip deforms when you put it against the screen. Most of these stylus are marketed at the iPad, but they work on all devices using capacitive touch screens, including the Vox.

I personally like the Adonit Jot a lot. It's more expensive, but they use a plastic disc on a rotating joint instead, which allows for more precision.

Don't bother with Wacom stylus or plastic stylus that used to come with old smartphones or PDAs. The capacitive screen of the Vox will not work with them.

They have some at the Winners at Garden & Taunton Rd. $7.99, they may also have some at the one at Harmony & Taunton, at least they did this weekend... I got a couple (Hip Street brand, they're on a fixture in the men's area) and they work great. No need to pay more.
