S-Pen isn’t going anywhere


Korean consumer electronics giant Samsung has bought a 5-percent stake in tablet tech specialist Wacom.

The move indicates Samsung is committed to Wacom technology, which is behind its S-Pen devices. Samsung currently offers S-Pen technology in a number of tablets, as well as Galaxy Note phablets.
