It’s great for people who spend their day in meetings, or brainstorming new ideas, or sales people who want to stay focused when meeting with clients, and can help reduce distractions so that you can write with pen and paper and save your notes digitally. It’s the perfect gift for professionals who want to get focused and organized. The Bamboo Slate also helps save time because it converts your handwriting to text within an app on your smartphone. It even lets you organize, edit and share your notes and sketches via Dropbox, Evernote or OneNote. I even use it in my daily life. For more information, visit www.wacom.com
