    Looking into the Intel at IFA 2014 image gallery (full gallery here: http://newsroom.intel.com/docs/DOC-5626#imagery) I found this photo of a Toshiba Encore 2 WT8-B with a stylus:[​IMG]
    The stylus shows two side buttons, so it is a electromagnetic device. In your opinion, can it be N-Trig? I have no news on a active-digitizer edition of the Encore 2 WT8, is it possible that every Encore 2 WT8 is pen-enabled?

    It can be a great plus for a 199 USD device.

    First I saw the pen, I thought: N-Trig. And we could use more active digitizer tablets...

    Looks like some of the N-Trig pens I have used.

    Do you have any links with actual confirmation that is Wacom?

    Because that sure as heck looks like an N-trig Pen

    The pen looks like a wacom one.
    I hope we will have confirmation.

    It's in Japanese.... But the mention of N-Trig is in English.

    So assuming this article is accurate... Case closed; the Encore 2 is n-triged

    Actually, they say the Encore 2 Write is a joint development with Wacom.
    The article says that media mistakenly reported it as an N-Trig device. That is why you need context not only text.
