The Volito2 now comes in a dark grey, metallic colour that will look stylish in any home. The surface of the active area on the tablet has been specially treated to enhance the feeling of pen on paper and it also indicates in which area the pen can be activated.

The pen takes advantage of Wacom’s patented ‘penabled’ technology and as a result is both battery-free and cordless. Using a pen in such a natural way helps to provide a personal touch when creating digital communications such as greetings cards and invitations. For ease, there are two buttons on one side of the pen, which by default are configured as right click and double click. However, these can be freely customised to suit the user.

Volito2 will be available from the end of March 2005 from all PC stores such as PC World and will be priced at £35.99 including VAT. The product comes with a two-year guarantee.
