To meet the needs of the increasing creative fans of the manga and anime art style, Wacom today launches Bamboo Manga, an addition to its recent new line-up of its market-leading Bamboo tablets.

In addition, the improved design and combination of multi-touch and pen-on-paper-feel technology delivers a more connected, inspiring and fun way to use a computer.
Precise Pen & Multi-Touch Experience
For fast, easy navigation of PCs or Macs, Bamboo Manga combines the pressure-sensitive, battery-free and cordless pen experience with multi-touch functionality that Wacom is renowned for. The pen’s design offers an aesthetic shape due a soft touch grip area, pen buttons and an eraser, and maintains an impressive 1024 pressure levels and enables users to make accurate cursor movements and handwritten notes. The multi-touch experience is enhanced and more intuitive, so sweeping with fingers over the tablet to scroll through documents, surf the web, rotate images or flick through photo galleries is quick and easy.
An interactive tablet that brings out your creative potential
“The manga drawing style has been very popular amongst artists in Asia Pacific regions for some time and now users can ideally bring their creations to life with Bamboo Manga. We offer the perfect tool to personalise their creative content and to draw, paint and sketch in an enjoyable way,” says John de Olde, Asia Pacific Marketing Manager, Wacom Co., Ltd.. “The Bamboo Manga interactive pen tablet delivers a new experience of working with a PC or Mac. We wanted to combine the best aspects of user interfaces into one interactive pen tablet that is second nature to use. With Bamboo Manga, inspiration and expression become one, allowing our customers to evoke their creative potential.”
This new silver and black tablet makes a stylish impression and screams premium design. Underneath its luxurious, MacBook-esque exterior is a tablet that is instinctive and easy to use and includes a bay for the wireless accessory kit which is available separately. Four customizable express keys assist with easy navigation of computers, while the pen provides precision when creating. The small-sized tablet also comes with Corel® Painter™ Essentials 4, which turns any computer into a digital canvas and the Bamboo pen into a multi-purpose paintbrush. It’s the tactile connection with content through drawing, sketching, scribbling, and painting that makes the Bamboo Manga so great to use. Also exclusive to Bamboo Manga is openCanvas® Lite (Windows version) which was designed especially for Wacom. This creative software enables users to illustrate smooth lines and vibrant colors while enjoying the infinite possibilities to express their artistic abilities. Whether retouching and editing or creating your work from scratch Bamboo Manga is the ideal tool to use.
In addition, Bamboo Paper, a very successful new Bamboo app, provides users with the ability to create virtual notebooks for their computers, letting them share their ideas visually with handwritten notes, sketches or doodles. Bamboo Paper is available as a free app in Bamboo Dock (which sits on a computer’s desktop). This ever-growing library of apps includes games and tools for creating and sharing.
