    I'm sick of getting kept out of Lenovo booth every damn year at CES. And the so called "pro" journos that get in do terrible job of covering pen devices at these shows. I'll be at CES again this year like very year, and this time I will take with me a pro level 4K camera (Panasonic Lumix FZ1000). Get me into Lenovo and other booths as press for this site and you guys can use my footage I take and report I will do on those products. Will not cost you anything. I already have my badge, plane tickets, and lodging for the show.

    Wadda ya say Tablet PC review admin? Make some arrangements with Lenovo and other tablet PC ODMs for me? X1 Yoga tablet exclusive footage and coverage for the site is calling you...

    Fine. No one here wants to bother and call Lenovo marketing for some free videos and article. It's everyones' loss.

    You should probably PM Ed Hardy directly.

    Great idea!

    The CES coverage is chaotic at best with nobody asking any of the questions I'm interested in hearing answered.

    Shog would make a great rep!

    I just PM'd Ed on your behalf with a link to this thread.

    Hopefully you'll hear back soon.

    I was just thinking, someone from this forum needs to go to these shows armed with an arsenal active pens, so we can get definitive answers on stylus compatibility.

    You could also test finer points like: stroke lag, hover lag, IAF, and pressure control, between all the Wacom AES implementations (currently Toshiba seems to have the best rep), and also compare them to the EMR performance on your T902!

    Pro Tip: use the beta download of PainToolSAI (its portable, so unzip and run) for testing, as the default installed apps probably suck for drawing.

    If there's a demo rep cock-blocking you, use OneNote desktop I guess :)

    This CES was a dry dessert for pen computing. No Toshiba, no Fujitsu, Samsung's new fangled AMOLED 12 incher was rigged with a lame capacitive none pressure pen with NO ONE at their booth knowing the real story about the pen, and entire Intel booth only has SP4 as the lone pen unit on display. I brought my gaggle of Wacom and N-Trig active pens for nothing. Fuuuuuuu....

    The best and only pen computing news I can bring you from the entire show is that Wacom will be bringing out a "master" Bamboo branded AES pen that will work with ALL AES ODM devices. And the sucker has a nice dimple on one of the buttons so it's very easy to find the barrel buttons. Has a button on the back to, but don't know if it's an eraser, or a BT button that launches whatever you map to it. Real quality construction too. Expect it for $60 around a month or so. Soon as it's out, I'm kicking Lenovo Pen Pro bastard to the curve, I'll post some poor cell phone pictures later.

    Back to topic of pen computing coverage, I think I will abandon CES from now on and try to go to WMC or CeBIT. That's where most of the tablets and 2-1 computers are unveiled. Unfortunately it's much much more expensive than going to Vegas for few days. I might have to launch an Indigogo campaign or something...

    Did you get a chance to try the universal AES Bamboo pen on the Samsung TabPro S?

    I still find it unlikely that the active digitizer shown in the System Properties refers to a bluetooth-only pen. Another way to tell would be trying to look for a "Wacom device" in the device manager.

    Also what about Lenovo's offerings? If the AES implementation is good on those, the X1 Tablet/Yoga could become the 2016 favorites on this forum.

    Could not get into Lenovo at Venetian. They took over like 3 restaurants but security was f'n dick.

    The Wacom Bamboo AES pen was at Wacom booth. They wouldn't have appreciated me lifting it from South Hall and taking it all the way to Central Hall for testing on the Sammy. The Sammy was early in software, and they weren't having it with me getting too frisky with it.

    As I've said, a big bust of a show for pen computing.
