A new range of interactive wireless pen tablets called Bamboo has been launched to meet the needs of a new generation of creative and social network users, said Wacom, during the launch in Malaysia.
"Consumers are becoming significantly more expressive and creative in their everyday digital life," said Wacom Co Asia Pacific marketing manager, John de Olde. "With the new Bamboo generation, we offer the perfect tool to personalise content and to navigate, write, draw, paint and sketch in an enjoyable way."
"This applies to office users wanting to add handwritten notes and scroll through documents quickly, to teenagers wanting to scrawl messages on their friends' online photos," said de Olde. "Bamboo interactive pen tablets deliver a new experience of working with a PC or Mac. We wanted to combine the best aspects of user interfaces into one interactive pen tablet that is second nature to use. With Bamboo, inspiration and expression become one, allowing our customers to explore computer input in ways they have not yet thought possible."
He said creating, editing and sharing images and documents was made easier with the new wireless, interactive Bamboo pen tablet. "Wacom is launching an all-new line-up of its market-leading Bamboo tablets. The multi-touch and pen tablets now boast wireless capability, allowing users more flexibility to bring ideas and creativity to life through an intuitive, versatile and fun computing experience."
"[These] are ideal for everyone that wants to create personalised digital content and use a more intuitive input device, Bamboo enables anyone to express their creativity," said de Olde. "[Available in Malaysia from 27 September], the range of colourful interactive tablets includes the Bamboo Fun (medium), the Bamboo Pen & Touch (small) and the Bamboo Pen (small). The lightweight Pen & Touch and Fun models are now wireless capable and ideal for working while relaxing on the sofa or taking out and about. Users can benefit from hours of cable-less freedom. In addition, the improved design and combination of multi-touch and pen-on-paper-feel technology delivers a more connected, inspiring and fun way to use a computer."
Founded in 1983, Wacom produces pen tablets, interactive pen displays and digital interface solutions.
