Microsoft just announced the release of its new Surface Pro, but another piece of tech has slipped under the radar with all the noise that the tablet is making in the tech industry: that's the Surface Pro's peripheral device, the Surface Pen. Though it's less splashy that the Surface Pro, the Surface Pen is indeed an impressive item that deserves mention.
One of the biggest problems that users have noticed with tablet pens has been lag. No matter how powerful the tablets processor was or how quickly it communicated with the pen, there would be a frustrating bit of lag that could throw off a writer or artist as compared to sketching and writing the old-fashioned way.
The Surface Pen communicates with the silicon in the Surface Pro's screen rather than with the operating system, meaning that it has a virtually instantaneous response.
