Wacom supply the Bamboo Stylus within a minimalist white packet that certainly wouldn’t look out of place in an Apple Store. This is very sparsely decorated but does feature a reasonably large image of the product on the front.
On the rear of the packet there is some information about Bamboo which is repeated in no fewer than nine different languages. Inside the box, the Stylus is only accompanied by a quick start guide.
The Stylus itself feels very good quality thanks to the entirely metal construction. This makes the Stylus a little cumbersome to use though as it feels quite heavy. Wacom have chosen to use a black and silver colour scheme for the Bamboo Stylus which makes it a perfect aesthetic match for Apple’s black iPad. It would be nice to see a white version too in the future for users who have a white iPad.
While the Stylus itself is slightly smaller than your average pen, it features a clip which means that you can keep it securely in your pocket with your other pens. At the end of the Stylus we find the capacitive nib which takes the form of a small rubber-like dome.
