TOUCHTOCONTROL

Gadgets and Gizmos (India) - - REVIEWS -

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.
