Wacom’s Bamboo Stylus feel for mobile devices
Wacom has announced its new ‘Bamboo Stylus feel’ line including two digital pens suitable for Android and Windows 8 tablets.
Due to the integrated Electro-Magnetic Resonance (EMR) technology, the new devices provide a higher-quality, and pressure-sensitive writing experience with more precision in note-taking, sketching, and device navigation. In addition, the ‘Stylus feel’ pens also use the “active” pen and sensor technology to ensure a writing experience much closer to that of writing with a usual ball-point pen or a pencil.
The new pens are different from the capacitive Wacom styluses for the iPad, due to the ability of the feel styluses to actually communicate with the tablet in order to relay pressure sensitivity information.
The ‘Bamboo Stylus feel’ come in two different versions – a carbon fiber pen and a non-carbon fiber model, in black or white.
The ‘Bamboo Stylus feel’ pens will be available as of January 7th in North America on Wacom’s e-store and only at select retailers. The carbon fiber model, which comes in executive silver/black, will retail for $80. The second version will be available for $40.
