E FUN's APEN Touch8 Gives All Windows 8 Users Touch Screens
WEST COVINA, CA, Jan 03, 2013 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) --
E FUN, a consumer electronics designer and marketer of fun,
easy-to-use lifestyle products, now makes it possible for any Windows
7 user who has upgraded to Windows 8 to fully enjoy its touch-screen
capabilities. Its new APEN Touch8 system, using ultrasonic and
infrared technologies, operates as a multi-touch-screen digitizer,
providing touch-panel functionality where there was not one before.
The APEN Touch8 will be on display at CES in South Hall MP25067,
"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 VP 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 Touch8 allows users to slide, swipe, and zoom right along
with their Windows 8 applications. They can open programs, folders,
and files; search the Internet; access e-mails; play games; draw;
sign digital documents; shift to background programs; close
applications; and so much more with the flick of a stylus.
The Touch8 system comes with a cordless digital stylus, detachable
receiver, and a USB cable connection to the Windows 8 device. It
offers plug-and-play simplicity; there are no drivers to download.
Users simply attach the receiver to the edge of the screen using the
provided magnetic clip, and then connect the USB cable. Once the
computer or laptop is turned on, they can start enjoying Windows 8
touch-screen capabilities with the Touch8 digital stylus.
Other features of the Touch8 system are up to 15.6" coverage area,
500 hours of continuous writing/hovering battery life, and absolute
