Wacom Working on Bamboo Note App, Wants to Make Note Taking More Intuitive

By Radu Iorga

Just yesterday we wrote about Wacom’s Bamboo Ink stylus and now another Wacom product pops up. This time it’s a software product, a professional note taking app, that should give the Samsung Note app a run for its money, in the Note 8 version.

Wacom usually relies on third party apps for pen support, like the Microsoft ones incorporated within Windows 10. OneNote comes to mind. Bamboo Note is the app made by Wacom and it’s said to be available soon, making note taking intuitive and simple, according to the company. The app lets you do more than just hand writing, you can type text, integrate images and use an unlimited canvas.

Notes can be exported to PDF or other formats, plus printed. The whole infinity canvas thing makes me think of OneNote for sure and I expect Microsoft isn’t thrilled that its product is getting a rival. Wacom has a good track record with such apps, if you just look at Bamboo Paper for example, that lets you turn your Windows tablet into a paper notebook and capture ideas on the go.

It’s all sketching, drawing and more, using a system that imitates real pen and paper.

Wacom Bamboo Ink Stylus Now Available for Windows 10 Tablets

By Radu Iorga

Once the Windows Ink feature came out, many Windows tablets started unlocking their potential for scribbling and drawing with a stylus. And some companies benefited from that, by launching dedicated accessories. Chief among them is Wacom, with their Bamboo Ink stylus, that just became available.

Announced this May, the product is finally up for sale. It’s a pressure-sensitive stylus, that works on a large variety of Windows 10 devices, made by different companies. The only requirement is that they support Windows Ink. For those of you not familiar with Windows Ink, this is Microsoft’s way of offering input via stylus, in a superior way compared to other platforms.

It came with Windows 10 Anniversary Update and lets accessory makers add support for pen-related features without even needing a singular pattern of hardware. Anyway, Wacom’s product is the one in question here and this Bamboo Ink comes with active stylus features, such as the pressure-sensitive tip, two customizable buttons on the side and a Bluetooth button at the top side.

That one can trigger features like Ink Workspace, start a Screen Sketch or open the Sticky Notes. These are triggered with a press, long press or press and hold action respectively. Wacom Bamboo Ink is available from Microsoft Stores and Best Buy, priced at $69.99. It can be used with the likes of ASUS Transformer Pros and Mini, Fujitsu Lifebook models, HP Elite x2 and so many more.

A full list of compatible products awaits you in the source link below.

Today’s Video Worth Sharing: Full Review of The Chuwi SurBook 12.3 Inch 2 In 1 Tablet PC

By Tim

Today’s video covers the full review of the Chuwi SurBook 2 in 1 Windows Tablet PC. It comes to us from Chris over at TechTablets. This device sports a 2736 x 1824 screen resolution which is the same as a Surface Book. This is an IGZO display.

Also included we have either 128 GB or 64 GB of onboard eMMC storage, an Intel Celeron N3450 Apollo Lake CPU, 6 GB of RAM and 2 Full Size USB 3.0 ports and a USB-C 3.1 port.

There is also a microSD card slot in the mix and an optional back-lit keyboard and a stylus. This is a pretty decent device although it has a hefty price tag but is obviously far less expensive than a Microsoft Surface Book.

This one isn’t on my list because of the storage limitations. I would have preferred to see an SSD slot on this device so upgrading storage would be easily available.

So all that being said, let us proceed to the video!

This device is currently available at Banggood for $429.99.

That is all for now,

Tim

Amazon Debuts Fire HD 10 Tablet (2017) With Full HD Screen and Lower Price Of Just $150

By Radu Iorga

There were speculations over the last days that Amazon was preparing a new tablet or two. Well, that actually happened today and they debuted a new 10 incher with Full HD res and a $150 price tag. Meet the Amazon Fire HD 10 Tablet 2017:

This device will serve basically as Amazon’s flagship slate, available with a 10.1 inch Full HD panel, making it the first of the kind to sport such a panel since 2013 and the Fire HDX. The pricing starts at $150, which is $80 less than the previous model with a similar format. Amazon Fire HD 10 (2017) ships from the week of October 11th.

So let’s see what else is new, aside from the screen. The tablet runs on a quad core processor, one that Amazon has yet to detail, plus 2 GB of RAM.. The average battery life jumps from 8 hours to 10. The dual speakers on board come with Dolby Atmos acoustics and we also get 32 GB of storage, a microSD card slot, but there will also be a 64 GB model. As usual, the device runs on a modified version of Android, with some specific Amazon features.

One of them is dubbed “For You” and it’s basically a dynamic app launcher that brings you feature access from the homescreen. One swipe to the right and you’ll see icons that show the latest features you accessed. Fire HD 10 (2017) comes in black, blue and red and it’ll get optional covers at $40. The design is plasticky and quite massive at first glance.
