Microsoft Classroom Pen 2 Launched at Half the Price of Its Predecessor
Microsoft Classroom Pen 2 has been introduced as the successor to the original Classroom Pen launched in 2019. It is a pen that has been optimised to use with the Microsoft Surface Go and Surface Pro laptops and, as the name suggests, it is targeted towards students. The company has not mentioned if, like its predecessor, the new digital pen can be used with other non-Surface Windows laptops that support MPP protocol. Microsoft says that it’s pushing towards a digital ink future and has cited studies that show that an average school uses about 50 reams of paper, which is about 2.5 trees per teacher for a 100-teacher school every year.
Microsoft Classroom Pen 2 price, availability
Microsoft Classroom Pen 2 cannot be purchased individually and comes in a pack of 20. A 20 pack of Microsoft Classroom Pen 2 will cost $399.80 (roughly Rs. 30,000), which is half the price of the original Classroom Pen that launched at $799.80 (60,000) for a pack of 20. Microsoft Classroom Pen 2 will be available to education institutions in the US starting April 27.
Microsoft has not shared any information on international availability for the Classroom Pen 2 yet.
Microsoft Classroom Pen 2 specifications, features
Microsoft says the Classroom Pen 2 has been optimised for its Surface Go and Surface Pro laptops, and comes with an improved design with a durable and replaceable pen tip. There is a tether slot on the Classroom Pen 2. The clip of the pen attaches to Surface Type Covers so you have a place to store the pen when not in use. Microsoft has not shared if there will be multiple colour options with the Classroom Pen 2 as only a single Silver option has been introduced at launch. The digital pen is shaped like a regular Surface Pen and has two buttons on it. Microsoft has not yet not shared details about its battery life or pressure sensitivity which, given the cost, is not likely to be on par with the Surface Pen.
