Wacom Announces Bamboo Stylus feel for Mobile Devices
New digital pens offer precision performance and ergonomic comfort to Windows 8 and Android tablets with embedded Wacom feel IT pen technology
Tokyo, Japan and Vancouver, Wash. - December 4, 2012 - Today Wacom® announces Bamboo Stylus feel, a new addition to the Bamboo Stylus family that features two digital pens with Wacom's patented EMR (Electro-Magnetic Resonance) technology for tablets that integrate Wacom feel IT into their designs, such as the Samsung® Galaxy Note 10.1. Marketed under the Bamboo Stylus feel
brand, these high-quality, pressure-sensitive pens provide precise note-taking, sketching and navigating for mobile device users seeking a natural-feeling experience.
Different from Wacom's capacitive Bamboo Styluses available for iPad, iPhone and other touchscreens, the Bamboo Stylus feel delivers a powerful combination of "active" pen and sensor technology for a digital pen experience that emulates the feel of a traditional ball-point pen or pencil. Pen and tablet communicate with each other via electromagnetic signals, an ingenious and intuitive technology which was created by Wacom and highly coveted by millions of users worldwide.

Bamboo Stylus feel, available January 7th In North America on Wacom's eStore and at select retailers, is being offered in two high-quality versions. The carbon fiber pen (available in smart executive-silver/black) is priced at $79.95 USD. The second pen, priced at $39.95 USD, will be available in both black and white versions.
