Wacom introduces a new object, the Bamboo Pad, which combines touch pad and an active surface for pen. There are two types of models: one with a USB, available in one color, black , and another with a wireless connection, available in 4 colors (blue, purple, black, green). The technology used is the same on multimedia tablets and phablets (Galaxy Note): Feel IT Technology. You can manipulate your content with multitouch and pen has enough different levels of pressure to be able to sign and make some drawings (we have no info -informations – about the number of levels).

The tablets an the pen have a button. We don’t if we can customize the pen button.

Prices : the model with USB connexion costs 50$ and you get the wireless models wireless for 70$.

Video. The whole team said at the end, « why they laugh watching wallpapers on their screen? » All male team said at the end « you think they are going to do crac crac (faire crac crac means to f*ck) ? » All women’s team [Rhonda only, actually …] said at the end « Pfffiu, did you see her dress. Bas taste?« .

We have an exclu  for you. If the Bamboo pad is Plug&Play on Windows, but you need to install a driver on Os X, it’s because the product was just made for windows. At the last moment, Wacom decided to sell the device to Mac users too.
