    Even now there are a bunch of Toshiba tablets at the physical stores not listed on the online store (in Canada).

    Were you able to test low-speed linearity? Was it jittery like N*Trig? I know you ID guys don't draw that way, but I need to sometimes :)

    Just started playing with Encore 2 Write 10-inch tablet. The feel of the Wacom AES pen is quite different, not nearly as fluid as EMR. It definitely doesn't feel like 2,048 levels of pressure. On the other hand, it seems to be much less jittery than N-Trig and equally accurate. No inadvertent blots on the beginning of strokes in Clip Studio Paint or Sketchable like Shogmaster demonstrated with Fresh Paint.

    Yeah, that blob thing seems to be limited to Fresh Paint. Makes sense since Clip Studio Paint actually limits the markings to pen while Fresh Paint is happy to allow you to finger paint.

    I was at Yodobashi camera in Yokohama station and the Toshiba Dynabook Tab 8" was on display. Also the bigger sibling was there too with the pen. Just thought I'd let you know. I tried the own and it was good, but then I'm not an expert on this. Still enjoying my SP3.

    No Yodobashi in Ryukyu, EdiOn and Yamada Denki is as good as it gets. Rumor has it that there should be a Kojima too, but I think it is an urban legend.

    Substitute Yodobashi for Microsoft Store, EdiOn for Best Buy, Yamada Denki for Office Max, and that sounds just like my world =P

    I haven't been able to reproduce the ink blots in Fresh Paint either.

    I just ran the hardware check that's on the Wacom site alongside the Feel It driver and it says that it is not currently compatible with the Encore 2, but may be in the future.
