Design, ergonomics and natural feel deliver premium writing and sketching experience to iPad users

20th April 2011 – Drawing on its experience and pedigree achieved through the development of interactive professional and consumer pen tablets, Wacom® today announces the Bamboo® Stylus. The pen is designed specifically for the Apple® iPad®. It offers an intuitive way to experience note-taking, sketching, drawing and other forms of creative expression on the popular iPad.

Touch has revolutionised computing and how users interact with their devices. Using the Bamboo Stylus further enhances numerous applications designed for the iPad by allowing users to express themselves and personalise their work. The stylus brings a more accurate and precise way to take notes in meetings and classroom settings or to sketch out rough ideas while on the go. It gives creative thinkers the opportunity to be expressive and visualise their life.

The authentic and satisfying feel of the stylus is achieved through subtle design elements, such as a sophisticated black and silver design with satin-textured metal body, a focus on ergonomic comfort and balanced weighting of the pen. In addition, the fine tip gives the user more detail control.

Ideal for handwriting notes, giving a personal touch when editing documents, drawing, sketching and much more, the Bamboo Stylus enriches the way in which users interact with their iPad. Users can now be even more creative, using it in the way that suits them.
