Wacom bamboo pen and touch

This device is best summed up as a wacom tablet with some minimal touch functionality thrown in as an afterthought. The stylus+eraser functionality behaves as one would expect and you can seamlessly switch from stylus to finger on the tablet surface. So far, so good. Unfortunately, the touch functionality is not smooth at all when compared to the magic trackpad, iGesture, or even the cirque smartcat. The multitouch functionality in particular is very limited, with only a small set of available gestures and only two simultaneous touch points supported.
