VANCOUVER, Wash., Sept. 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Wacom today launches Bamboo Stylus pocket – a new, compact and flexible stylus for smartphone, iPad and Android tablet users on the go. The expandable stylus extends and contracts to fit specific needs.  In the extended position, it is perfect for jotting notes or creating a quick sketch.  While contracted, the Stylus allows users to easily flick through emails, play games and navigate.  Additionally, when fully collapsed, Bamboo is simple to store in a pocket, purse or directly to the user's mobile device through the handy headphone jack plug attached to the Stylus' cap. The Bamboo Stylus pocket is the essential mobile mate for capturing ideas whenever inspiration strikes.



Gadgets such as media tablets and smartphones have become every day companions, supporting our need to be constantly available and connected.  Bamboo Stylus pocket by Wacom is the perfect tool to aid this contemporary lifestyle, allowing users to digitally write, doodle or navigate more easily on their touch screen devices.

With the Bamboo Stylus pocket, so much more can be done on a touch screen. Compared to a user's fingers, a Stylus is more precise, accurate and comfortable when editing pictures, drawing maps and creating dynamic presentations.

Compact and comfortable, the Bamboo Stylus pocket allows users to be flexible and spontaneous with their smartphones and tablets. Measuring a convenient pocket size of just 3.7 inches, the ergonomic Stylus is expandable to a more traditional size. Combining a high-quality and elegant design, synonymous with all Wacom products, the Stylus comes with a headphone jack plug on its cap. By directly attaching the Stylus to the tablet or smartphone, endless searching or loss become a thing of the past and the Stylus is always conveniently on hand.

Individualize the Bamboo Stylus pocket
The Bamboo Stylus pocket uses a best-in-class responsive pen tip for a fluid on-screen experience. Consumers are able to choose between a soft or firm nib (both included in the retail packaging) dependent on individual needs. The soft one is for those wanting to apply less pressure, whereas the firm nib enables stronger pressure while doodling or writing. The Bamboo Stylus pocket also comes with three exchangeable color rings allowing for individual personalization.

Bamboo Paper App
Bamboo Stylus pocket perfectly connects with Bamboo Paper, an app for personal expression, whether for business, school or home use. The digital notebook for the iPad is perfect for a quick note, illustrating a presentation, displaying favorite family photographs or livening up a recipe. Now, users can add images and photographs to notes as well. Those images can be annotated or moved around the screen to help users express themselves and communicate in a creative fashion. Photographs can even be taken on the iPad and incorporated directly into the app, ensuring that pages really come alive.

Bamboo Stylus Family
The Bamboo Stylus pocket is the latest addition to the Wacom Stylus family. It joins the multi purpose Bamboo Stylus duo – an all-in-one rubber nib and a ball-point ink pen – and the Bamboo Stylus solo – a rubber nib pen for media tablets. With any member of the Stylus family, users can visualize their thoughts in personal and business life, offering the user an intuitive and natural experience while using a touch screen device.
