WEST COVINA, CA--(Marketwired - May 9, 2013) - E FUN, a consumer electronics designer and marketer of fun, easy-to-use lifestyle products, announces that its APEN Touch 8 pen designed for Windows 8 is now available at Newegg.com in time for Mother's Day. Using ultrasonic and infrared technologies, the APEN Touch 8 easily converts a standard Windows 8 PC monitor or laptop into a touchscreen device. Moms who have upgraded to Windows 8 on a non-touch computer screen can now experience its capabilities to the fullest.
"With the Touch 8 pen, mom can slide, swipe, and zoom right along with her Windows 8 applications," said Jason Liszewski, managing director and VP of sales for E FUN. "At a low cost, the Touch 8 provides touch-panel functionality where there was not one before. The APEN Touch 8 makes the perfect gift for any mom wanting to take advantage of all that Windows 8 has to offer."
The APEN Touch 8 gives mom the ability to open programs, folders, and files; search the Internet; access e-mails; play games; draw; sign digital documents; shift to background programs; close applications; and so much more with the flick of a pen.
The APEN Touch 8 comes with a cordless digital pen, detachable receiver, and a USB cable connection to the Windows 8 device. It offers plug-and-play simplicity; there are no drivers to download. Mom simply needs to attach the receiver to the edge of the screen using the provided magnetic clip, and then connect the USB cable. Once the computer or laptop is turned on, she can start enjoying Windows 8 touchscreen capabilities with the Touch 8 pen.
Other features of the APEN Touch 8 are up to 17" coverage area, 500 hours of continuous writing/hovering battery life, and absolute positioning.
