    As of now only Wacom themselves (MSP) Samsung (S-pen), Cube (i7 book), and ...potentially Dell......(provided their Desktop Studio device is indeed using EMR which looks to be the case.)

    I also wouldn't be surprised if EMR popped up in some devices from Motion Computing or Fujitsu....given how select their markets are.

    However with both Cube and Dell, and any others, their likely just using Wacoms old stock of EMR tech.

    Any new sensor board cuts or advancements will likely remain exclusive to Wacom and Samsung.

    Miix 510 is using AES, not EMR. Also 510 is 16:10 IIRC.

    I certainly hope so, Lenovo better bring their A-game to CES. ;)
    I loved the idea of modularity on the X1 Tablet, but not the failed execution. However, I think they might bury that idea instead of improving it for the successor.

    Apparently the Miix 720 went on sale in China, under the name Miix 5 Pro:

    According to a post in the Eve forums, main complaints are fan noise, heat and battery life.

    It seems similar to the Miix 510 in that regard, so I assume that the power and thermal engineering is the same.

    Can anyone here, who speaks Chinese, identify any new information about the pen?

    Oh, well, Lenovo China has also posted some documents for the Miix 720, but these seem to confirm the info from the previous shop listing that this does not have Thunderbolt 3 after all, contrary to the initial leak.

    Seriously Lenovo, X1 Tablet, Miix 510, Miix 520 and Miix 720/Miix 5 Pro all have USB-C and you can't be bothered to include Thunderbolt 3?

    IMHO, there is a possibility that Lenovo is saving that TB3 feature for a new upcoming high-end tablet, maybe a successor to the X1 tablet? Hopefully, Lenovo isn't becoming like old Sony, thinking they can push their proprietary stuff (OneLink) forever.
    Though, I am a realist, so I'm not getting my hopes up.

    Miix 5 Pro? Is that new? Is there a link to device cause a quick google search brought nothing up.

    Well CES 2017 is not to far away actually IMO:p
    Hope will see an improved X1 tablet with improved screen(and slightly bigger 12.3-12.6),2 USB C 3.1 thunderbolt support,only NVMe SSD storage option,DDR4 ram and bigger battery capacity at tablet(45Wh minimum)

    Modular is good as an option but Lenovo should focus making the basic device as much better.

    Also reduced the huge bezel.
    We are 2017 and not 2010.

    Well, let me just quote myself from two posts before yours ;) ;

    That was so disappointing for me with the X1 Tablet, that the Modules didn''t really enhance much of the functionality and part of what was in the Productivity Module should have been in the tablet itself (TB3 vs. OneLink, additional USB port). Lenovo is planning to put out some additional modules for their Moto Z smartphone, so maybe they are using that R&D to come up with better modules for a tablet as well. On the other hand, some of the current modules for the Moto Z are also crap, like the speaker module and the camera module. Google's ARA project is also cancelled. Hmm, why can't anyone make modules right? The latest good implementation I can remember was the slice battery and slice dock for the HP Elitebook 2740p/2760p

    And adaptive bezels/smart frame etc is a ghost that swirls through these forums, but despite its obvious benefits, doesn't come to life. Why???

    But for me it is equally important that they keep a regular USB3.0 Type A port on the future device. I like add-on modules, but I hate dongles!
