LG Velvet advertises active stylus support on Galaxy Note 20 debut

Samsung has traditionally had the monopoly of phones with active styluses, though Huawei at one point was able to launch one that was compatible with the other kind of battery-powered Wacom-enabled pens that Samsung's Galaxy Note phones didn't use. LG does have its only line of stylus-toting devices but those are pretty much just thin counterparts of regular passive styluses you can easily buy on the cheap. The mid-range LG Velvet, however, is different and LG is making sure the public knows about its less advertised powers and it's not really being subtle about pitting it against the more expensive Galaxy Note 20.

LG V60 ThinQ 5G and its Dual Screen apparently work with Active Styluses

When it comes to phones with styluses, Samsung's Galaxy Note is pretty much the only serious game in town. Yes, there are some that hide a stylus inside, like LG's Stylo/Stylus line, but these are pretty much just glorified sticks that are not exactly that different from the cheap ones you can buy with rubber or plastic tips. There have been a few random surprises, like the Moto Z4 last year. It turns out, LG might have a hidden surprise as well waiting for those who buy into its V60 ThinQ 5G and its Dual Screen promise.

Wacom caught tracking user on drawing tablet [UPDATE]

In early 2020, an intrepid Wacom drawing tablet user by the name of Robert decided to do some investigative work on his beloved drawing tool. To do this, he employed the help of in-between software - that which allows a user to see what data's being sent from a device to a 3rd-party server via the internet (and vice versa). His findings did not please him.

Wacom One hands-on at CES 2020: the Cintiq for the masses

Wacom One hands-on at CES 2020: the Cintiq for the masses

Even with the flood of drawing tablets from the likes of Huion, XP-Pen, and other brands, Wacom remains the gold standard when it comes to such creative input devices. Its Cintiq, the name it gives pen display line, is often the dream of many budding artists that are turned away by its prohibitive price. The Wacom One is clearly the company's response to these two situations aiming to reclaim a segment of the market it lost to more affordable alternatives. And, for the first time, it specifically targeting an underserved Android market as well.

Wacom Cintiq 16 is a pen display for the rest of us

Wacom's tablets - officially dubbed "creative pen displays" - are used by artists of many different stripes, but one roadblock to actually obtaining one can be price. Wacom's displays typically aren't cheap, and though that isn't necessarily a negative thing, it means that people who are just getting started with art studies or even a career may have trouble affording one. Wacom hopes to alleviate that issue by announcing the Cintiq 16 today at CES 2019.
