N-trig Announces DuoSensePen2 Styluses

by Reads (625)

N-trig today announced the launch of the next generation of its DuoSense Pen line of styluses, the DuoSensePen2.

\"N-trigThe “active pens,” as the company calls them, will come in sizes of 9.5mm, 8.0mm and 5.5mm, and will be usable on various Windows and Android smartphones, tablets, and ultrabooks (which will mostly feature touchscreens from now on). The pens will come in either rechargeable or battery-operated versions.

N-trig claims that the new DuoSense will feature improved accuracy and sensitivity, hover and function buttons that don’t sound unlike those in Samsung’s S Pen, and “advanced palm rejection” for those who just can’t keep their big hands out of the way while writing.

The company says that Android and Windows machines using the smaller two DuoSensePen2 models will hit the market “later this year,” while the 9.5mm stylus is in production right now. No word yet on pricing or exactly which devices the DuoSensePen2 will be pairing up with, as N-trig tells TechnologyGuide that those details will have to wait until the OEMs are ready to share more info.

    Wintab, Wintab, Wintab… fix your damned drivers N-Trig, so we can FINALLY use Photoshop and all the other industry standard graphic arts programs with *pressure sensitivity*. Then maybe, we’ll look at your new pens. Maybe. WTF is so hard about this? Why is it taking years and years? Do you hate your customers?
