The perfect tool for your digital life

Bamboo Pen and Touch

Step into a world of diverse digital expression with the new generation Bamboo Pen and Touch. The striking black and lime colour tablet design is easier to use than ever. Wireless capabilities are the latest addition to your pen and touch tablet, so lie back while you shop or game online or organise and flick through your holiday pics. It's all about getting connected.

Don’t do boring presentations, express yourself and use precise pen strokes to add handwritten notes that get the team buzzed. A simple tap of your finger will select an icon, open a menu or start an application. So let your fingers do the talking or just switch over to precise pen strokes as the mood takes you.

Bamboo Pen and Touch is both Mac and PC-friendly and designed for left and right handed use. The tablet comes with an integrated pen holder, a new eraser shape and four customisable ExpressKeys for extra comfort and easy navigation. A variety of exciting free Bamboo apps inside Bamboo Dock are kept ready for download and are part of this package.

Bamboo Pen and Touch


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 Pen and Touch


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.

Bamboo Pen and Touch

Digital inking

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.

Bamboo models that include a pen make digital inking possible, but you should check your computer specifications to see whether your operating system and software support inking. Inking works best with Office 2007 and 2010 and Microsoft Windows Vista or Windows 7, which include a number of pen-friendly features.
