Wacom to Make Multi-Touch Tablet
If you are anything like me your Wacom tablet is nearly indispensable in your creative process. I would even go so far as to say that for me personally I could never use another device for sketching or painting on a computer. When the painting apps for the iPad started surfacing I got excited, hoping that it would be a portable version of what I had loved for 10 years already. Sadly the lack of real pressure sensitivity jaded me pretty quickly and I haven’t come across a solution yet that I felt satisfied with.
But there’s hope on the horizon! Wacom announced on their facebook page that they are working on their own mobile tablet, which will launch this summer.
There aren’t a lot of details yet, they’ve just said:
“We’ve heard you shouting out loud for a Wacom mobile tablet for creative uses. Well… we’re listening. We’ve read your email and spoken to many about an on-the-go dream device. It will come. This summer. We’re working 24/7 on it. And yes, it has a real pressure-sensitive professional pen, smooth multi-touch, an HD display, and other valuable features that you haven’t seen in other tablets.”
Of course there are still a lot of questions, like: What OS will it run? Will it connect to a desktop? What price point will they come in at?
Hopefully these questions will be answered sooner than summertime, I’m really excited about this one.
