Samsung has used Wacom technology since the first Galaxy Note, with their integrated digitizer and fancy stylus being used in every Note series device so far. And it looks like this partnership isn’t going anywhere. On the contrary, Samsung bought a 5% stake in the company, costing them $58.9 million. Wacom says that the amount raised from the sale will go towards “product development and manufacturing and supply system enhancements for products to be supplied to Samsung Electronics” by March of 2014.
The S Pen is something that sets the Galaxy Note series apart from any other device on the market, and seeing this relationship go somewhere just means more unique products for the market. Consumers should be happy, and we’re sure Samsung is too.
