Hi, I'm curious to how you guys respond to the criticism of the stylus/clearpad technology on the dell venue pro 8, which is raised in this thread starting on page 32 http://forum.tabletpcreview.com/dell/59202-venue-8-pro-owner-s-lounge-32.html. Are there any ways to fine tune the pen input in regards to hover distance etc? How much of the pen technology is software vs hardware dependent, will we get driver updates/software releases that enable better inking?
It would be great if we could get some information from a dell representative. As it is now, the clearpad stylus input seems to be among the worst active stylus options on the market, far behind wacom and also ntrig.
would also like yo hear an official response to this problem. Are Dell aware of the amount of dissatisfied customers? Were they aware of the problem before releasing the product? And do they have a fix on the way?
I have sent an email asking if they know what is going on, or if I should cancel my order. I am hoping to hear back from them on Monday.
You could just put a piece of paper on the screen and write blindly to test it out.
What I would like to know is if any representatives from Dell are paying attention to this matter. I would love to see some sort of acknowledgement on this board. That would definately make me feel better about not cancelling my order, as I am on the border right now.
Some one just posted on the tabletpcreview.com forums just replied to a similar thread sating that a firmware update is in the works to be released next week. His user name is runnershigh, which doesn't sound official, but it is the first bit of positive news we have gotten. Who knows, it may be fixed before I get my tablets.
