Wacom announced a brand new digitizer or stylus for Windows 10 tablets and other Windows devices with a touchscreen today, and it’s called Wacom Bamboo Ink Plus. It’s launching between June/July for $99 says Wacom today.
The new Wacom Bamboo Ink Plus stylus is an evolution of the Bamboo Ink Smart Stylus, but it has been reworked both inside and outside, so that it’s now new features and specs, it’s lighter, and for the first time has a rechargeable battery.
With new hardware, the Bamboo Ink Plus has been made to be more accurate, offer more precise lines, better feedback, and lighter touches as it now also features tilt support as long as the actual Windows computer has it. Just like the predecessor though, the new Ink Plus has three differently sized nibs (pen tips). The new design is also even sleeker than before.
Wacom’s new windows stylus is optimized for the Windows Ink Workspace (Microsoft’s Windows suite of approved approved digitizer apps) and the pen itself is compatible with both Microsoft’s Pen protocol, Wacom’s Active ElectroStatic (AES 1.0 and 2.0) protocol and MPP 1.5 and 2.0 protocols.
