  • Tablet comes with a USB cord but you can get a wireless adaptor for it.
  • The texture of the surface feels great with the pen (seriously this is my favorite part of this tablet)
  • Pen doesn’t have a battery or need recharging

What’s Not:


  • No eraser on the backside of the pen
  • Pen is kinda light (because there is no battery)
  • If you draw hard you’re going to see wear on the tablet surface (it gets smoother)

  • Battery-free, pressure sensitive pen
  • Four customizable Express Keys
