Following the presumption that designers want every part of their workspace to be stylish as well as functional, Wacom has launched the Intuos 2 Designer Pen. The pen is wrapped in aluminium brushed metal, but also includes the enlarged cushioned area of the standard Intuos2 pen. The rest of the pen has the same features as the standard pen – including 1,024 pressure levels and customization control through a control panel. The Intuos2 Designer Pen will ship at the end of February for £69.99 plus VAT. It works with all Intuos2 tablets and is available with serial or USB connections.
