Samsung has used Wacom's stylus and screen technology in several of its products, including the Galaxy Note, Galaxy Note II and the Galaxy Note 10.1, and now it's investing in the firm that provides those parts. Wacom announced in a release recently that Samsung will acquire 20,996 common shares of Wacom, giving it 5 percent voting rights in the company's future.

Neither Samsung nor Wacom discussed what this means for consumers, but we're betting Samsung didn't buy a part of Wacom if it didn't plan to deploy tons of new phones and tablets that take advantage of the technology. As it stands, we're already expecting the Galaxy Note 8.0 at Mobile World Congress and a few rumors have suggested Samsung's flagship Galaxy S IV will also come equipped with an S Pen.
