Surface Pro 4 gets an all-new pen
Let me introduce to you the latest surface pen.
Real quick, I'm just going to walk you through the features.
It has a tail eraser.
It has this beautiful friction to it so when you do erase from the back, isn't that funny, we finally put an eraser on it?
We gave you a thousand and twenty four points of pressure on the tip of this pen.
A thousand and twenty four.
So when you press down And you know how that ink naturally flows out of your pen?
It will flow out of this pen, too.
You'll feel that.
We give you a full year of battery life.
There's two reasons for that.
One, you know something about pens.
Every now and then if you use it a lot you change the ink.
That seems reasonable.
That's the metaphor.
We don't want a rechargeable solution for you because we don't want you to lose that productivity moment if you're in your flow.
You don't wanna stop.
You don't wanna worry.
That's what this pen is for.
But I wanted to show you what we're doing with this pen.
Check this out.
Now let me show you the integration of the pen, because that's what this is all about.
How to use the pen.
Not just talking about the features of the pen.
I'm gonna sign right here.
I'm gonna click the pen.
And you're gonna see what happens when OneNote opens up.
Do you guys see that?
It's just the one click and here's OneNote.
I can write.
Look how smooth the ink is coming out of my pen.
And then I can just erase.
You can see that easy erasing off the back and it feels like an eraser so that really brings it to life.
And then at any given time you guys have used this, you could double click the pen.
And if you double click the pen, what happens is OneNote makes a decision.
And this is that integration of Office and OneNote on this product.
By the way, there isn't a product on the planet that runs Office and OneNote as good as this product, it's unreal.
Now, I can take whatever I want off this screen.
Do you see how I clicked that and that came to life?
Let it go and it drops into One Note just like that.
And now I can ink on it and I can send this information to my kids or whoever I wanted to.
You've seen that.
That's pretty cool.
There's one more step.
Here if you look down at the bottom, it's Cortana.
This is Windows 10.
If I hold down my pen now, in the most natural form, I have a tablet, how do I wanna call her, how do I call [UNKNOWN].
You just hold the pen, watch down here in the corner.
Tell me about the Microsoft store in Manhattan.
There it is.
Came up, Which is kinda nice.
Then you can see it.
There it is.
The search result where all I do is hold the button and I get back my search results.
That seems pretty smart.
But now I have Edge and now I can write.
This is the beauty of the product, so now at any time I can now write on the web the way I want to.
Is that pretty cool?
So this is Edge starting from here.
Now what happened with all of that content?
[APPLAUSE] What happened?
It goes to my Lumia 950 and those things are connected and it is an absolutely beautiful things.
But why do you do all this?
What's the point?
It's not just for the Microsoft applications, it's for others and we're seeing developers be inspired right now.
Traditional apps, like Lightroom, Photoshop.
Illustrator, all touch and pen enabled, awesome.
We're introducing five colors of the surface pen, I hope you like them, I think they're beautiful.
But, even more important, we're introducing interchangeable pen tips.
It changes everything, it's like a ball point pen to a felt tip pen to even a pencil.
Take a look, it feels phenomenal.
