    fedron...not to pre-empt the Shog, but my understanding is, no. With the 21ux Wacom went with an upgraded driver that isn't tpc friendly. Different stylus required.

    i think this may be possibly with the newer tablet pcs? i friend of mine has an hp tablet pc with vista & my intous3 pen (which is the same pen used with the cintiq) worked with it...

    anybody else experience this?

    That is definitely NOT possible. Intuos 2 and 3 pens are NOT frequency compatible with Wacom Penabled Tablet PCs, which basically uses the old UD series digitizer boards and pens. Intuos 1 pens are, however, since they were based on the UD series sensors.

    I have posted this before, but just to recap: the Wacom pens compatible with Tablet PCs are from:

    - PL500, PL600, Cintiq 15X, 17SX, 18SX, PenPartner, Art Z II, Intous 1 and Sony LX900~920

    Get a pen that came with those and you are good to go. Don't bother trying to use pens from any of the Graphires, Intuos 2~3, and the new Bamboos.

    i too thought this was the case...but sure enough we were able to use an intous3 pen on his new tablet pc (hp tx1305??? )...so i thought perhaps the newer joints might share this functionality?

    With that tablet, you can use a toothpick after you've picked remnants of your dinner out of your teeth and get the same results. That tablet's digitizer is passive, not active. The Intuos 3 pen was just acting as a piece of plastic, not an EMR device.

    If you mean the digitizer in the HP, it's just a generic resistive touch digitizer. Many OEMs makes them.
