Samsung buys 5% of Wacom, the stylus is here to stay
These 5% are equal to an investment of $58.2 million, so no major bucks have gone into this. Still, this deal serves as an obvious proof that Samsung will continue to equip some of its devices with these sweet Wacom-powered styluses. The cool thing about these gadgets, and the thing that differentiates them from those simple sticks of past times, is that they are now pressure sensitive and can be used for drawing and other productive work. We're glad that Samsung is enhancing this technology and isn't just loading ordinary styluses into its products.
Speaking of products, there have been some rumors hinting that the Galaxy S IV smartphone, expected to get announce in late April or early May will have a stylus, but we wouldn't be too sure about this yet. What's more probable, though, is that Samsung will continue to equip its expanding Note line with styluses.
