Back in May, Wacom announced the Bamboo Ink, a new digital pen for Windows Ink compatible PCs. Since Bamboo Ink is compatible with Windows devices using both Microsoft Pen Protocol (MPP) and Wacom AES technology, you can use it with wide variety of Windows 10 devices. You can easily switch between the protocols by simply pressing and holding both side buttons.

Bamboo Ink has an ergonomic triangular design and a soft-touch surface for comfortable use. It comes with a choice of three different fine nibs (soft, medium, firm) for a personalized inking experience. It is also pressure sensitive, it continuously detects and transmits the pressure a user applies on the surface of their Windows devices.

Just like the Surface Pen, the Bamboo Ink pen has customizable buttons which you can personalize it. You can set it to open Windows Ink Workspace on single click and open Screen Sketch on double click. You can also press and hold the Bluetooth button to open Sticky Notes for example. This pen is compatible with following Windows 10 devices,
