A digitizer pen from Wacom will be included on both Convertible products this year. Compared to the standard capacity pens used on most Tablet devices today, the digitizer pen offers better capabilities for finer grain detail and responsiveness. These capabilities are valuable for professionals and students who need a premium, paperlike experience on their ThinkPad devices, particularly in K-12 Education and the Healthcare industry. The ThinkPad Windows 8 platforms with the integrated Wacom pen are x86 systems and will support both legacy applications and run-time developed Windows 8 style applications.
The Wacom digitizer pen is supported on the new ThinkPad Tablet 10.
