Plantronics Handmate Windows 8 Pen
Handmate Windows 8 pen is specially designed for Windows 8. Setting up is simple, just connect the device to USB and set it on the screen. Then you need to put batteries in the pen. Now, calibrate your pen so that write input is passed when used.

It is plug-n-play device, and supports features like drag-n-drop, slide, swap, zoom in, zoom out, etc. It uses ultrasonic and infrared to operate. But if you are used to sensitive screen touch experience of devices like ipad, our smart phones, then you must have in mind that this device will take time to get used to.

In India, it will cost around 4,999 INR. Not, technically cheap but a good buy in case you have some work regarding drawing etc. Great device for playing windows 8 games from the app store. Apart from that plays great, with Microsoft Office documents.

This version of device works on screen sized 16 inches or below. Higher screen size devices are expected to be comming soon.
