Bam­boo Tablets go wire­less

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - TECHNOLOGY -

WA­COM has in­tro­duced its third-gen­er­a­tion Tablets, the Bam­boo Fun and Pen & Touch which fea­ture wire­less ca­pa­bil­ity, im­proved de­sign and multi-touch.

The Tablets can oper­ate within a range of 10m and even work while their bat­ter­ies are be­ing charged.

The Pen & Touch can last for 15 hours on a sin­gle charge and the Fun for 10 hours.

How­ever, users will have to pur­chase a wire­less ac­ces­sory kit which in­cludes a don­gle for con­nect­ing the Tablets to a PC or Mac.

Wa­com says that the ad­di­tion of mul­ti­touch will make the Tablets more in­tu­itive to use. Users can swipe their fin­gers over the Tablets to scroll, pinch to zoom and use two fin­gers to ro­tate draw­ings.

Also, the Pen & Touch has four cus­tomis­able ex­press keys for easy nav­i­ga­tion.

To get users started on draw­ing and paint­ing, Wa­com will bun­dle the Tablets with a va­ri­ety of apps such as Ar­tRage 2.5, Pho­to­shop El­e­ments, Corel Paint Essen­tials 4 and Bam­boo Scribe 3.0.

The com­pany also un­veiled a base model, the Pen, for be­gin­ners.

The Pen, Pen & Touch and Fun re­tail for RM299, RM419 and RM719 re­spec­tively. The wire­less ac­ces­sory kit will be avail­able in Novem­ber but the price has yet to be an­nounced. — CHONG JINN XIUNG ++++ www.wa­
