PR Newswire – Berlin, Germany – Sept. 3, 2015
Wacom® today announces new Bamboo stylus products at IFA Berlin 2015. Leading the charge is the fine tip smart stylus for iPad: Bamboo®Fineline 2, a high-precision digital pen allowing creative thinkers to capture and shape their ideas.
The Digital Pen for Creative Thinking
“Our customer’s feedback drove the updates for our existing pen products,” Mike Gay, senior vice president of the consumer business unit at Wacom stated. “Wacom refined its pressure sensitive pen for the iPad to recreate the feel of writing with pen on paper. Bamboo Fineline 2 is the perfect complement to our Bamboo Paper app, allowing users to easily save, edit and share their work. Combined with the Wacom Cloud, this complete solution enables our customers to make their ideas a reality using their iPad.”
Bamboo Fineline 2’s improved industrial design provides a better writing experience and improved comfort. The battery for the Bamboo Fineline 2 lasts approximately 20 hours and is easily recharged via USB cable.
Ideators have a broad spectrum of application choices when it comes to taking notes or sketching digitally. In addition to being optimized for Bamboo Paper, Wacom is constantly collaborating with developers and software vendors to ensure that Bamboo Fineline 2 is seamlessly integrated with leading apps. Current supported apps are updated regularly on the website and include Notes Plus, GoodNotes, ZoomNotes, Concepts and MyScript® Smart Note.
