About the Product
Use the pen to write or draw onscreen or interact with your touch applications. Integrated pressure sensors help you control the width of your drawn lines. Launch an app on your tablet from your pen with a programmable Bluetooth feature that you can pair with your choice of frequently-used software.
Create without limits. New Surface Pen is better and faster than ever, with precision ink on one end and a rubber eraser on the other — plus tilt for shading, greater sensitivity, and virtually no lag. Think With Ink: Windows and Office give Surface Pen more power than ever.
