    And here I was trying to have the thread title edited to remove the mention of Wacom. I hope I was wrong!

    I think it looks far more like an N-trig pen then a wacom penabled one.

    The all metal construction looks very much like ntrig, and the nib tip you really can't go by since n-trigs newer pens have nib tips that are similar in size to Wacoms. And the end of the pen looks more like a battery cap then an eraser.

    The only non-ntrig thing I see is the side switch...from the Slate 500 to SP3, every ntrig pen I can recall has used the same design for the side switch button.

    N-Trig is the only company to bring a 15" digitizer to the TPC market so far. I've also read more than one tech reporter say that the stylus uses a AAAA battery.

    I went looking and the only Wacom product I saw which ran on battery power, (AAAA), was that Blue Tooth "Creative Stylus" number for the iPad. -So, if this one is indeed powered by a battery, if it were Wacom, then it would have to be a completely new product which we've heard nothing about yet. Also, Wacom's 15" TPC digitizer is still just this side of vaporware at the present time, so...

    That all leads me to think, "Yeah. Probably N-Trig." (And maybe, "Bah, humbug.")

    But I'm still not going to place any bets just yet.

    I used the Envy 13 x2 for a couple of minutes during an Intel Core M event in Italy, there was a Lenovo ThinkPad Helix 2 and I tried to use the Lenovo pen on the Envy - it does not work, so if it is Wacom is not Penabled/Feel technology.

    Tomorrow I'll be in a HP Italy Event, there will be a very high chance I'll be able to use the Envy 13/15 x2 and the Pavilion 10 x2. I'll bring with me a full set of pens Wacom, N-Trig, Atmel G2 and Synaptics/Dell A02 so the mistery will be undiscovered.

    Sorry, I messed up. The pen was from the ThinkPad Helix 2.
