E FUN, a designer and marketer of easily available fun, lifestyle e-products now makes touch-screen abilities available to all Windows 7 users who have upgraded to Windows 8. E FUN’s new APEN Touch8 system makes it all possible.
The APEN Touch8 will be displayed at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES (News - Alert)) from January 8 to January 11. The new APEN Touch8 system operates as a multi-touch-screen digitizer and provides touch-panel functionality. It uses infrared and ultrasonic technologies.
"There are about 600-million Windows 7 PCs and laptops in use today that can be upgraded to Windows 8," stated Jason Liszewski, managing director and vice-president of sales for E FUN. "The problem is that all of the platforms on which they run do not offer touch-screen technology. Our APEN Touch8 system allows these units to be easily and economically upgraded to include a touch function to take advantage of all that Windows 8 has to offer."
The APEN product line Technology was developed by Yifang Digital, a cutting edge Tech company based in China, in cooperation with Pegasus Technologies Ltd from Israel, which is a fully owned subsidiary of Yifang Digital.
With the help of APEN Touch8 users can open programs, folders, and files; access e-mails, sign digital documents, search the internet, play games, draw, close applications, shift to background programs and more with the flick of a stylus. Users can zoom, slide and swipe along with other Windows 8 applications.
With the APEN Touch8 system, detachable receiver, cordless digital stylus and a USB cable connection to the Windows 8 device is provided. The system is plug-and-play and has 15.6" coverage area and there is no need to download any drivers. The Touch 8 digital stylus also has an amazing 500 hours of continuous writing/hovering battery life.
Users can simply attach the receiver to the edge of the screen with the help of the magnetic clip which is provided, and then the USB cable can be connected. All they need to do is start-up the computer to enjoy Windows 8 touch-screen capabilities with the Touch8 digital stylus.
The APEN Touch8 will be available for a retail price of $79.99 in the first quarter of 2013.
