    The Staedtler Noris digital pencil doesn't have that much to do with Samsung, this is another result of Wacom's push to make other vendors like non-digital stationery manufacturers to adopt Wacom technology. That is the reason why Wacom created their Digital Stationery Consortium. Since Samsung joined the board of that a month ago along with Montblanc, it only makes sense that this will be released in connection with Samsung, but it is not a Samsung product.

    Lack of an eraser (WHY???) and button sucks indeed but the feel of regular pencil does have something going for it.

    OMG - any chance Cross will bring back its Executive Pen (Wacom EMR) - now that would be the final straw for this cowboy! The more I look into the GB 12 the more I am getting hooked anyway. Pricing folks - pricing!

    The Galaxy Books would almost certainly register the older pens....but they would still be useless. The alteration of the nib assembly Samsung did with the S-pen handicaps old EMR pens by way of creating moderate to severe nib-to-pointer offset and drastically over or under reading the IAF. It will vary from pen to pen...some may randomly work better then others....but for the most part, those pens are going to be useless.

    Well Montblanc did a pretty close rendition with its Starwalker and Pix pens:

    They cost a pretty penny though...

    Yeh, offset might be an issue, and not ideal. The Wacom UP-911E works fine with my SP2 but on Note Pro/Tab A/Chromebook the offset is noticeable.


    ...$500 for a MontBlanc Pen...gulp....probably sells well in Dubai.

    Will the new s-pen work on Android apps on the Samsung Chromebook plus/pro?

    All the Wacom EMR pens that I have:

    Wacom UP-911E
    Wacom Bamboo Feel
    Wacom Bambo Smart
    Samsung sPen w Eraser
    Samsung sPen from Note Pro etc..
    Fujitsu Lifebook Pen


    ...seem to be working normally, on the Chromebook Plus/Pro.

    However the side buttons don't seem to be detected.

    Wow that pen cost a pretty pen but it looks like for $150 you can turn your regular Mont Blanc pen into a digitizer that works with wacom devices?

    Do we know if this will have a dedicated charging, or is that all through USB-C?
