Jamboard's touchscreen can differentiate between the stylus and the eraser. It also can sense when someone uses a finger to erase content from the screen rather than write on it.The stylus and digital eraser don't require batteries or pairing, Google said.The Jamboard will be available for purchase next year at a price point of less than US$6,000.
