Bamboo tablets are a great help for navigating your computer –- whether you're moving your cursor across the screen, opening and closing files and folders, or working in common software applications. Bamboo tablets combine pen and multi-touch in one tablet, allowing you to alternate between the pen and gestures on the tablet surface.
Multi-touch makes it possible to use simple finger taps and hand gestures to navigate around your desktop and perform common tasks. Wacom introduces nine useful gestures that you can use with your tablet.
To navigate with the pen, just hover with the pen tip over the tablet surface. Each point on the tablet maps to a corresponding place on screen, making it easy to move your cursor. Tap the pen to select, and tap twice to open files. With a pen, you can perform any motion or command that you make with a mouse, and many more. Most tablet users will tell you that once you’ve got used to the pen, you'll never want to be without one.
Alternating between input devices can help reduce wrist strain caused by repetitive strain or RSI. A tablet provides an ergonomic alternative to traditional input devices, allowing you to work with your computer with minimal effort and from a relaxed position. A tablet assumes all the normal functions of a traditional computer mouse including basic navigation and selection, but provides vital ergonomic advantages as well.
Bamboo helps you share your ideas, communicate more clearly and speed up your productivity. Highlight key messages, mark up documents, and visually express your thoughts and ideas. Bamboo is a great companion for getting work done because it allows you to collaborate in a more efficient way.
Here are some great ways that Bamboo can help you at work:
- Improve the way you work with your computer using gestures and pen input.
- Mark up documents in common Office 2007 applications like Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Outlook using the review and inking tools.
- Mark up PDFs with your thoughts and comments using the pen tool.
- Keep a daily log or diary using Windows Journal, which allows you to digitally handwrite notes and make sketches.
- Spice up your presentations by controlling your cursor, making notes on your slides and highlighting your messages while you present.
Whether you’re using multi-touch gestures to navigate and operate your computer, or utilising the pen for more detailed work, Bamboo provides a compelling combination that will change the way you work.
All Bamboo models that include a pen make collaboration natural and easy, but you should check your computer specifications to see whether your operating system and software support these features. It works best with Office 2007 and 2010 and Microsoft Windows Vista or Windows 7, which includes a number of pen-friendly features.
Inking allows you to write digitally in your own handwriting, making it possible to take notes on your computer, sign your name, write an email to a friend, highlight important parts of a document, or even sketch out a diagram.
It’s like writing on paper, but in a way that can be saved, edited, and shared as a digital file. Imagine having the potential to change the way you communicate by sending personal messages and fun drawings, annotating driving directions, or just brightening up someone’s day with a little humour.
Even if you’ve never used a digital pen before, it’s easy to understand why the pen is intuitive to use –- it’s just like writing with traditional pens, pencils, and markers. Additionally, you can navigate your computer with the Bamboo pen.

The tablet itself is brilliant - the multi-touch works very well, and it makes navigating through pages, programs and photos so much faster! The four buttons on the side can be programmed any way you like - I use the bottom two for 'click' and 'double-click', the top button for switching between 'touch on' and 'touch off' modes and the second one for opening the 'bamboo dock' program.
The pen, if anything, is even better - unlike the touch system, which works like a laptop touch pad, the pen maps the active area of the tablet directly to your screen, so wherever you position your pen on the tablet, the pointer moves to. Drawing is a joy - there is so much more control than using a mouse, and the 1,024 pressure levels allow you to actually vary the width of the brush by applying different pressure.
The pen also has two buttons on the side of it, which can again be programmed to do anything - mine are simply click and double click. The pen works when hovering above the tablet - you can move the cursor without drawing that way, and the buttons work when it is held above as well.
I'm afraid I haven't had the tablet for long enough to determine whether the claims that it wears down the nibs very quickly are true or not. If I find them to be true, I will update this review in the near future. If not, I will simply leave it the way it is. The tablet does come with spare nibs, however, so even if it is the case, it is nothing to worry about.
All in all, this tablet is a fantastic device and a brilliant edition to any computer - essential for the aspiring digital cartoonist or graphics artist, perfect for photo-editors or those who feel their mouse or trackpad just isn't stylish enough for on-screen navigation, and a must-have for any tech pioneers who are always looking for new and different devices to add to their collections.
My only concern would be that the USB cable to connect the Wacom device could be a little longer to allow for movement and more suitable positioning- so if your cmputer will be further away from your workspace, this may not be for you.
Otherwise an excellent product which I would suggest for all students- the workspace on the tablet itself is a decent size and the pen is comfortable.
The design of the tablet itself is also very smooth and sophisticated. Easy transportable as extremely lightweight too!
It also works out a lot cheaper for me too, as a student.
I'm so glad I brought it. The tablet itself is a pleasure to use and very easy. Took only a few minutes for me to get used to it. It also comes with a game, a notebook, a mona Lisa thing where you can distort the painting, and some other apps.
It was also very easy to instal too, (Internet required). Runs very well on my MacBook pro 2011 and do all the other programs.
Also when registering the product, the serial number is on the back of the tablet.
It's a great product and works with other programs too, such as paint, etc.
I have also brought the wireless adapter too, and helps a lot. Although make sure you fully charge it first.
On top of this! The service of Amazon was good too. It came two days before the actual delivery date. And was pakaged nicely too.
The different levels of sensitivity and the pen in general is great, the only problem is that the button closest to the nib is almost flat and I press it all the time by accident. You can turn it off so it's not a big problem but it may as well not be there. The buttons and shortcuts are really versatile and can be used to do pretty much anything.
My only complaint is with the wire. It is very short and cannot even reach my PC properly, I need to have it in left handed mode so my buttons are on the wrong side. You would have thought you could just get a longer replacement easily, but no. The mini-USB end of the cable is longer and thinner than a standard one, and needs to be to fit into the tablet. A standard one just won't reach the socket. It's probably a built in fault to force you to buy the wireless kit, but I'd advise just getting a standard USB extension cord. I haven't tried that yet as I just had the idea whilst typing this but it should work.
