I too would really like and look forward to the Apex review. It looks like a real nice pen. How did you find out that the Apex is Surface compatible. If it is I just might jump the gun and buy it.Thanks. I look forward to your experience using the Apex.
Thanks. This is what I really feared, which also means that it is very likely that the new version of the Surface Pro is going to be my choice in the near future....now , when is it again that MS is supposed to release the Surface Pro3?Sorry all...
I talked about the Apex TrueGlide in another thread and the results were less than stellar, the current overwhelmed the Surface's Capacitive Layer and inking was very erratic. I'm getting the best results with the Wacom Bamboo Capacitive Stylus, it would seem that the Surface 2's screen is tuned to work really well with the rubber tipped stylus.
Hmmm...thanks. But this pen support would be post-facto in terms of our Surface 2 devices because of the screens, right? But it could mean that the capability may be included in the Surface 3 (RT) in the future.Rumor is we may see the Surface MINI shortly, also rumored is Pen Support also running RT. I have no inside info on this outside what was said last September during the launch and Redditt Q&A....

But these are the types of leaks that the Surface Team has done in the past to generate some buzz prior to shipping...
OK. So how does that translate to our existing Surface 2 devices? Does this mean that we will have to buy Win 9 (unified OS - possibly via the app store)?It depends on how the pen is implemented on the Surface MINI, if they enable NVIDIA's DirectStylus Support that is in the Tegra4 then that could be back ported to the Surface 2, if they use the Wacom Feel Digitizer (the same as the Pro, Pro 2) it would be specific to the MINI.
Windows 9 (AKA Threshold) is rumored to be the unifying of the OS's
