    Drawing on the Transformer Prime

    Hi all,

    I will soon be a proud owner of a new Transformer Prime. My first Transformer Tablet experience. All the specs look mind shattering and the capabilities are astounding. However, I have a question regarding the artistic aspect of the TP. Through my research of this product I have gleaned that the device will be upgradeable to ICS. I have also found out that ICS should allow pressure sensitive screen capabilities combined with capcitive screen capabilities. My question is, does the hardware have to be customized for pressure sensitive stylus input for illustrations and editing photography, or can the ICS update alone allow this capability through software.

    Thanks for your time,

    Shadow

    I'm fairly certain that the screen would need to support the pressure sensitive feature and I don't think the Prime does.

    Sorry, AFAIK currently only the Samsung Galaxy Note has the Wacom technology for pressure sensitive stylus use (someone correct me if I'm wrong). The Transformer Prime has a capacitive touchscreen, like the iPad 2 etc.

    ASUS's page on the Prime says "10.1-inch WXGA Super IPS+ capacitive pressure-sensing multi touch display made with Corning® Gorilla® Glass for brilliant HD entertainment and intuitive navigation. 178° viewing angle (1280 x 800)"...

    Wow! As a future owner of the Prime and already happy owner of the TF1, I'm getting more impressed every time I find something new about the Prime

    Question? Is there a recommended stylus to use with the TF?

    This post made my day. I don't know how I missed that particular feature of the Prime. But it completely reinforces my commitment in spending the extra $300.00 on it versus the original Transformer.

    I will probably go for Wacom's Professional Pens

    I'm wondering if the ASUS definition of pressure sensitive is the same tech. Any capacitive display can be described as pressure sensitive. It wouldn't be wrong.

    Devil's advocate.

    I am highly sceptical of the pressure sensitive working as most people would expect it to work. It is great if it does. I always warn people that require something to have a feature that may happen in the future, to actually wait for that feature to happen. Nothing worse than buying something and then 2 months later you find out when it gets a software update it doesn't meet your expectations.

    The Prime still looks great, there are many reasons to get it. But if you are buying it for a feature that has yet to be demoed on any device in an OS that has yet to be on a released tablet, you are just asking to be disappointed.

    I don't think "pressure sensing" is the same as "pressure sensitive"; the former simply means that the screen can sense when it has been touched, and then respond, whereas the latter means that the screen can differentiate between different degrees of pressure, and respond in relation to those different degrees.

    Even if the Prime won't have the same pressure sensing feature Wacom tablets (and other resistive displays) have, I don't think it will be a problem for drawing. I use Sketchbook Pro from Autodesk Inc to draw on my TF101 with no problems at all: I just have to select the width of the line myself instead of relying on pressure sensors. The app also has very useful tools to make up for that particular missing feature of the tablet. Then again, having a capacitive screen that's also able to capture pressure would be hot.
