Wacom has been announcing a few new products lately. They recently announced the Cintiq companion as well as the Intuos Creative Stylus. To top it all off Wacom has refreshed the entire Intuos line as well. The old Bamboo line of entry level tablets has been discontinued. Now the Intuos line is now made up of 7 tablets. The regular Intuos tablets have a silverfish design and the Intuos Pro sport the classic black look similar to the Intuos 4. Included in this line is the Intuos Manga, the first tablet marketed at manga and comic book artist. Imagine what this table can do for photography! All the tablets have a newly designed pen which is more tapered in shape and has soft touch finish as well as colored rings and pen holder tags for customization. The standard model pens deliver 1,024 levels of pressure sensitivity while the Pro models deliver 2048.
- The three entry-level Intuos models include the Intuos Pen (small – $79 USD), Intuos Pen & Touch (small – $99 USD) and Intuos Pen & Touch (medium – $199). All three models can be plugged into a Mac or PC or equipped with wireless functionality (with a range of 30 feet) via Wacom’s optional $39 wireless accessory kit.
- The Intuos Pro is essentially the same tablet across the board, with all of the same hotkeys and built-in wireless and touch functionality. The smallest model will retail for $249, with the medium model going for $349 and the largest model costing $499. The medium-sized special edition will go for $379.
- The Intuos Manga ($99) is the same model as the small Intuos Pen & Touch, only it comes bundled with Smith Micro’s Manga Studio Debut 4 and Anime Studio Debut 8.
These tables are now available on the Wacom Store .
