TOKYO and VANCOUVER, Wash., Dec. 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Today Wacom® announces Bamboo Stylus feel, a new addition to the Bamboo Stylus family that features two digital pens with Wacom's patented EMR (Electro-Magnetic Resonance) technology for tablets that integrate Wacom feel IT into their designs, such as the Samsung® Galaxy Note 10.1. Marketed under the Bamboo Stylus feel brand, these high-quality, pressure-sensitive pens provide precise note-taking, sketching and navigating for mobile device users seeking a natural-feeling experience.
