For creative minds, Wacom has come up with a new range of Bamboo tablets. The one we tested was the Fun Pen & Touch, the highend sibling among the three.
Sleek to look at and comfortable to place on the lap, it isn’t, however, the most compact. But the playful use of Green colour on the black base makes this Wacom look classy. Four physical controls have been placed to the left of the Bamboo, while the stylus itself has the left and right click functions. With a pen-active area of 217 x 137 mm and various pressure levels for the stylus, it is a good help to graphics people.the back of the pen can be used as an eraser.
Existing Wacom users won’t find it difficult to upgrade but might take some time to get used to the touch gestures that allows them to swipe, scroll, double click, etc. If they don’t find it comfortable to use, they can happily turn off the touch mode. But in our experience, this great feature was hampered by the average touch response. Also, the connectivity cable is only 1.5 m long and falls short of the CPU if it is placed at a distance.
