    would Surface Pro 3 work. I saw a few people commenting on the Surface pen (Surface 2) but I just tried Surface Pro 3 pen and it doesn't work. I have paired the bluetooth with AVTN 8 but the pen is not writing.

    Am I doing something wrong or the Surface Pro 3 pen is different from the previous editions?

    Cheers,

    The two devices are not compatible. The Surface Pro 3 uses an N-Trig digitizer. The AVTN8 is a Wacom EMR device that is compatible with the Surface Pro 1 and 2 pens. Wacom recently introduced a new digitizer tech known as ActiveES. Both N-Trig and Wacom AES pens require batteries.

    Thank you surfaceproartist, I should have figured this out. I will suggest to the AVTN 8 lounge to clarify this in the list of compatible pens.
