The new fine-tip stylus offers expanded cross-device compatibility in today’s connected world. Now users have one easy solution for quick note taking across several smartphones and touchscreen tablets.
Today Wacom announced Bamboo Tip, a new fine-tip stylus for Android and iOS devices. Aimed at everyone who relies on digital note-taking and working across several devices to get things done but is weary of compatibility and pairing issues, Bamboo Tip offers a quick and intuitive experience across devices. Designed for writing on Android, iPhone and iPad devices and switching between without pairing, Bamboo Tip is an easy to use every day stylus for users on the move.
“In today’s connected world, we rely on a combination of smartphones, tablets and different operating systems to capture ideas, observations and next steps at work or at play,” said Mike Gay, Senior Vice President of the Wacom Consumer Business Unit. “Bamboo Tip lets users move seamlessly between devices and operating systems to get things done. As OS providers roll out more seamless note taking and markup capabilities on their devices, Bamboo Tip will help users take full advantage to be more productive and turn ideas into reality.”
Bamboo Tip leverages Wacom’s decades of experience in pen and styli technology to improve touch screen detection for reliable accuracy in nib-to-screen contact. It allows the user to quickly jump from device to device without waiting for the device and stylus to pair. That means you can take notes on your iPhone, sketch them out on your iPad, and then walk your coworker through your ideas on their Android device, allowing you to focus on the ideas in front of you instead of coordinating your tools.
Bamboo Tip comes with a durable and comfortable to touch anodized aluminum surface in elegant dark blue and a sturdy clip. Its 20-hour battery life and easy charging make it extremely portable and great for anyone who spends the day on the go and might not have access to their charging station. After an initial charge, simply press the button on the stylus to turn on the Bamboo Tip. The stylus will turn off after several minutes of not being used, or users can turn it off by holding down the button. A switch at the top of the stylus also helps users fine tune performance by changing the frequency at which the stylus communicates with a device.
Priced at $49.95 USD, Bamboo Tip will be available online and in select retailers starting in March.
