The Wacom drawing tablet has always been an expensive device for artists, more elusive for the casual artist. The price of a good tablet is the equivalent of an iPad. There many stylus pens in the market for iPads to use as a drawing tool, but none come close to the Wacom tablet. Wacom feeling the heat wants a piece of the iPad market and is releasing the Bamboo Stylus pen for the iPad. You still will not get the quality of a Wacom tablet, but something tells me sooner or later they will have to climb on board to the Apple juggernaut as the iPad is used more as a drawing device. Compared to other stylus pens, the Bamboo pen is an affordable alternative to getting a Wacom tablet. I am sure Wacom does not want to be left behind as much as they try to encourage you to buy their tablets. The Bamboo Stylus pen is worth your trouble and you will like the results it gives you. The convenience and portability of an iPad makes it a logical choice given with all the apps we can add to the device. The Wacom tablet has no apps to offer and many artists are starting to make the iPad their first choice of artistic expression.
The tip of the stylus is 25 percent narrower (6mm vs. 8mm) in diameter than some of the other most popular solutions on the market today. Combining ergonomic comfort and a firmer feel, the Bamboo Stylus offers a premium digital inking experience for handwriting notes, highlighting text, editing documents, drawing, sketching and much more.
Bamboo Stylus brings a more accurate and precise way to take notes in meetings and classroom settings, or to sketch out rough ideas while on the go. For example, users can improve their input experience with numerous applications developed for iPad, such as Penultimate™ for note taking and Autodesk® SketchBook® Mobile for sketching needs.
