Yeah. And what Inklet apparently does is let you use Inkwell without a tablet, entering text via a nice little pen that provides capacitance/conductance like your finger on the trackpad. (Or you can write with your finger, albeit less legibly, one presumes.) I haven't tried it yet, but probably will eventually. The web page makes it look rather nicely done, but I wasn't able to tell if you could use the true "write anywhere" mode, or if it only wrote into the Ink window (aka InkPad). I'd be curious to know.
