March 29, 2011, Taipei, Taiwan — Genius, a leading manufacturer of computer peripherals, today releases its MousePen M508W in the USA and Canada. A 5? x 8? wireless graphic-design tablet, the MousePen M508W uses 2.4GHz wireless technology and connects to notebooks and computers via a USB receiver, giving you wide-ranging freedom to move around without any interference. With exceptional value for money, this high-performance tablet is perfect for art teachers, students, and graphic-design professionals, and gives them wireless freedom to paint, draw, write, and edit.
The high-performance stylus is tilt sensitive ±60 degrees and has 1024 pressure levels, making brush strokes thicker or thinner depending on how hard the stylus is pressed, mimicking traditional painting. Perfectly suited for graphic-design professionals, MousePen M508W gives you the same experience as if you were using paint and canvas. As a mouse, the left button is a simple push down with a right-click button and scroll button near the tip along the side. The stylus moves across the 4000 LPI high-resolution contact area as if the screen and tablet were the same, making operation smooth and accurate. You can switch between the 5? x 8? contact area to a 4:3 wide screen contact area, if desired.
The Genius MousePen M508W tablet has four express keys (Desktop, Flip 3D, Page Up, Page Down) for easy navigating as well as an LED power and low-battery indicator. It also has thirteen programmable hot cells for customized Office and Internet shortcuts along the top of the contact area. There is a clip to store the stylus, making it easy to take the MousePen M508W with you. A wireless mouse comes with right, left, and scroll-wheel buttons and connects via the USB receiver.
The Genius MousePen M508W includes the following programs (for Windows only):
- Annotate for Word ? Allows you to hand write notes, highlight and annotate documents in Microsoft Word.
