Filed under: Industry News |


I can’t remember the last time I stepped into a best Buy… gack…


Wacom® announced today that its new Intuos Creative Stylus is now available at Best Buy locations throughoutthe United States. Offering the best drawing experience on an iPad®, the Intuos Creative Stylus allows the ad agency designer to do a quick concept drawing on the train, or the art student to sketch out an idea before class. As iPads are used more and more for developing ideas and experimenting with concepts, the new stylus fills a gap in the marketplace. It works seamlessly with the iPad 3, 4 and Mini and a host of creative apps, providing an authentic experience for whenever inspiration strikes.

Providing the power to produce professional results on an iPad, the Intuos Creative Stylus’ advanced technology offers a best-in-class pen experience and 2048 levels of pressure sensitivity. This means that it can reproduce the feel and artistic control of traditional brushes and markers, so it’s ideal for sketching, illustrating and image editing. It is also highly responsive, even reacting to light strokes, while rejecting unintentional touches when used with compatible creative apps that integrate Wacom’s industry-leading technology. Bluetooth® 4.0 Smart technology ensures seamless connection to the latest iPad devices.

One of the many compatible iPad apps is Wacom’s own digital notebook app, Bamboo Paper. The new version available now has been optimized for the Creative Stylus and offers great new tools that allow being even more expressive and getting more out of one’s creativity. Other popular creative apps work with the Stylus including, Autodesk SketchBook Pro for iPad, ArtRage (by Ambient Design), Bamboo Paper, ProCreate (by Savage Interactive) and Adobe Ideas.

"We are delighted to have Best Buy carrying our new Intuos Creative Stylus and making it an important addition to their selection of iPad accessories for creative users," said Mike Gay, Vice President of Marketing for Wacom Americas. "The Stylus would make a great gift and we expect it to do very well during the upcoming holiday shopping season."

Designed with a brushed aluminium housing in two color versions, black and blue/black, the Intuos Creative Stylus features an ergonomic shape that is extremely comfortable, even when used for many hours. Shortcuts can be customized via the duo-switch located on the barrel of the stylus..

Highlighting its mobile credentials further, a thin but powerful AAAA battery ensures days of constant use. The Creative Stylus comes with a convenient case that holds the stylus when not in use, spare battery and two replacement nibs.
