iRex 1000 vs 1000S: Can I disable touch input?
As I hate touch input and styluses (even my PDA is a clamshell with keyboard), if I were to buy an iRex product I would stay away from iRex Digital Reader 1000S and prefer the model 1000 which is the same thing without touch, but it looks as if there isn't availability for the non-touch model, so here's my question:
Can I use 1000S as a 1000, ie use it without touch input and without the stylus? Can I disable touch input completely? I hate it when a touch device receives commands I didn't intend to give to it whenever I accidentally touch the screen!

Yes. You can disable the touch-screen in the settings.

But... if you don't use the stylus, you won't have full functionality. e.g. you won't be able to use the shortcuts toolbar.
Its quite easy to navigate around just using the keys and I leave them all unlocked by choice - but there's some functions its easier to do using the stylus.
Plus the stylus allows you to play Sudoku and crossword puzzles, draw, write, annotate...

Many people seem to be confused about the "touchscreen" on the DR. The DR uses Wacom's active touchscreen, which means you can only activate it using a special Wacom stylus (shipped with the DR). It will not "accidentally" activate when you touch the screen with your fingers etc. In fact, apart from the minor savings in battery (if any), there is no need to turn off the stylus function; just leave the stylus in its cradle

As far as using it without the stylus, that's not a problem. It won't react to "accidental touches". The screen only works with the stylus, not your finger, etc. Just be aware that there is some functionality that will be impossible (or difficult) to use without the stylus. The user interface was really intended to have the stylus available (that's probably why they never made the DR1000).
