Targus Touch Pen for Windows 8 turns any laptop into a touchscreen device
Targus Inc. has announced a new device for laptops and Ultrabooks running the Windows 8 operating system - the Touch Pen for Windows 8. The solution can make any Windows 8 laptop a touchscreen device, being ideal for consumers and multi-tasking professionals looking to make their laptop a more dynamic and productive tool.

"People are excited about Windows 8, but not everyone can afford to buy a premium touch laptop. Users are looking for a solution that lets them experience the touch features of Windows 8 with their current laptop," said Carolyn Perrier, vice president of Accessories at Targus.

"Targus is the market leader in styluses and has the only product that can convert your Windows 8 laptop into a touchscreen device. With touch mice and touchpads, you have to learn new gestures, but the Touch Pen is almost as easy as using your finger. It's the most intuitive touch solution and makes your laptop fun to use. "

Exclusive to Targus, the Touch Pen's patented technology simulates the finger touch experience. A small receiver attaches to the side of the laptop screen and communicates with the Touch Pen so your laptop thinks it has a touchscreen.

The Touch Pen allows you to swipe, slide, and harness all the great features of Windows 8. Touch functionality will also provide a fast, fluid way to switch between apps, move items within apps, or smoothly navigate from place to place. The soft bristle tip prevents any rubber prints or damage to your screen.

The Touch Pen requires no software or drivers, and there is no need to learn any special gestures. A simple one-time calibration is needed—this is essential so that that the Touch Pen's receiver can determine the boundaries of the screen. It works with all Windows 8 installed laptops or monitors up to 17".

The Touch Pen will be available Q2 2013 at suggested price of US$99.99 in the USA.
