Helix Digitizer Sensitivity

2013-11-17, 14:46 PM

I just purchased a Refurbished Helix unit and noticed that there is no pen included. What is the sensitivity of the digitizer on the Helix? I see that there is a Helix specific digitizer pen for sale on the Lenovo site that has 256 levels of sensitivity 0A33910 and a Thinkpad 2 digitizer pen 0A33889 with the same dimensions with 1024 levels of sensitivity. Will the latter fit into the Helix slot and be fully functional with the Helix?

Hi mikaila,


The digitizer pen compatible with the Helix is 0A33910 wich has 256 levels of sensitivity.


You might want to check with your model number that your Helix is compatible with digitizer pen though. Some Helix are just multitouch only.
