The Cube i7 Stylus includes a Wacom-made digitizer layer in its 10.6-inch screen, and with a Wacom Pen, it offer a variety of functions you can’t get with a normal capacitive touchscreen. The most important feature that the Wacom-based digitizer layer here offers is the ability to detect 1024 levels of pressure. The screen doesn’t detect how much pressure you’re putting on it — instead, the tip of the pen retracts as you push down harder on the screen, and the digitizer layer can detect a difference in signals. Also, when you’re using your stylus to draw on your screen, the tablet can perform “palm rejection,” ignoring your touches and allowing your palm to rest on the screen. Even better, the Wacom stylus doesn’t need to include a battery, so you won’t have to worry about charging it.
