    From the corresponding article:

    "One of the first ideas Lenovo had was to use two color displays, but it quickly scrapped it because of weight and power concerns."

    Well OK, then at least make one side a writable E-ink display, like the Onyx Boox or the Sony Digital Paper. Then you have something interesting. Note taking in blinding sunlight: check. Reading PDFs in blinding sunlight for hours on end: check.

    Looking at the Lenovo website, the 'create pad' uses Wacom EMR and the display AnyPen.

    This makes sense, as I guess you'd do serious stylus stuff on the "create pad" (kill me now) and just tool section etc. on the display, for which the stylus should work (just without pressure sensitivity and other goodies).

    Hopefully this design means they can offset edge drift EMR has.

    Now the downsides:
    X5 not X7? Really?!
    No 'real' use of the tablet when held. AnyPen is okay; but no pressure sensitivity, palm rejection, differentiation between touch and pen, and no pen buttons.
    64GB. Humph.


    If only they had upped the storage, made the display EMR capable too, and used an X7. More RAM too, and being a bit thicker for more battery too.

    As for the Android version? Haha, get bent Lenovo.

    Edit: How they digitise paper notes is a rather inventive use of EMR (well battery powered pens would work too) that I hadn't thought of.

    Have any of you used AnyPen devices to date? Are they at least as responsive as iPads?

    I don't get what you're on about.

    AnyPen allows metal (and graphite) to be registered as touches, so you can use more objects to touch the display, especially thinner ones.

    It's basically just increased sensitivity.

    No iPads have this. The Sony Xperia Z Ultra had essentially the same thing.

    You've always been able to use capacitive styluses with the iPad but they usually had to be big and blunt. I'm just wondering how responsive devices with AnyPen are relative to those (material notwithstanding).

    You can use a pencil, or scissors, or a knife...

    I think surfacepro is asking how is the quality(of the AnyPen) vs a typical capacitive device like the iPad.
