PRESS RELEASE

Premium design, new soft-touch finish and elegant colours draw on strong pen heritage

Following the successful launch of its original Bamboo Stylus in April, Wacom today announces its new range of coloured pens matching Apple's iPad Smart Covers.

Available in white, blue, green, orange and pink, the coloured Bamboo Styluses are a perfect match for all iPad owners seeking the must-have device for content creation. While retaining the premium design and feel of the Bamboo Stylus, users can enjoy using the iPad for note-taking, annotation, drawing, sketching and visual thinking.

With the proven precision nib, which is up to 25 per cent slimmer than its competition, Wacom now also offers exchangeable nibs to suit the usage needs of iPad owners. Beside the soft standard nib, alternatives, such as more solid, robust nibs will soon be available on the market.

The pen coating's shiny, soft-touch finish exudes the premium quality which Wacom is renowned for. While simple, the appealing design continues to express the company's unmatched heritage in pen input devices.

Complementing the Stylus perfectly is Wacom's popular Bamboo Paper app. The app, which is free of charge, received more than a million downloads within 11 days of launch earlier this year. It is ideal for realistic and intuitive note-taking and sketching. With the launch of Bamboo Paper's free version, which is perfect for desktop use with a Wacom tablet, all Paper notes can now be shared between iPad and Mac or PC to offer a complete user experience.
