Sketch it out: hands-on with Wacom's Intuos Creative Stylus and retooled Bamboo Paper app

Last week, Wacom unveiled its latest tablet pen -- the Intuos Creative Stylus -- alongside a trio of Cintiq Companion standalone slates. The stylus is indeed a departure from the regular ol' scribbling units that we've seen pop up all over. This time around, the Intuos Creative Stylus draws much of its look and feel from Wacom's Pro Pen (or Cintiq Pen) with its on-board buttons, soft grip and recognizable shape. Of course, it wields the same 2,048 levels of pressure sensitivity that we've seen on units included with Intuos and Cintiq models as of late, and connects to the latest Apple tablets via Bluetooth 4.0. All of that sounds great, but as you might expect, it comes with a more expensive price tag. Is parting with $100 a safe bet in October or are you better off sticking with your current tools? Venture on past the break for our initial impressions. %Gallery-slideshow73499%
