Dell’s Premium Rechargeable Active Pen comes equipped with a unique in-built finding technology. Styluses tend to become misplaced or lost as they are only magnetically attached to a device. Hence, Dell’s collaboration with Tile will make finding a stylus less cumbersome.
Tile uses Bluetooth Low Energy Technology to track or locate objects. The companion Tile app can also be helpful to track an object’s last known location. So far, the company’s core standalone devices can track personal items like keys, wallets, or water bottles. However, Tile has been working with Intel for a few years to help track lost laptops, helping to find compatible HP, MSI, and Fujitsu PCs. Additionally, the technology is also built-in into headphones from Sennheiser and Skullcandy. Also, Tile’s tracking tech is present in smart wearables from Fitbit and dog ID tags from Qalo.
Dell’s collaboration with Tile for the latest stylus is another of Tile’s ventures in building its tracking technology into third-party devices. Therefore, a user can use the Tile app to make the stylus buzz and flash its LED lights when it’s lost. However, if the stylus is far away, the app will display its last known location to the user, using Tile’s network to track the smartpen down.
On an added note, the Premier Active Pen costs $110 with up to 40 days runtime on a single charge. Plus, it recharges up to 80 percent through a USB-C cable in 20 minutes. Also, it attaches magnetically to compatible Dell two-in-one laptops. Lastly, it flaunts three shortcut buttons and around 4096 levels of pressure sensitivity.
