UD-*/CT-* series

This uses the technology that made the Wacom what they are today. It is the same technology as many product names and OEM integration. Penabled, Pen Partner, ArtZ Pad II, etc. For example, Tablet PCs are typically “Penabled” and thus a pen that works on a UD-* also works on those TabletPCs.
