Wacom Announces New Cintiq 13HD Tablet

It’s not the standalone “dream tabletWacom‘s been teasing, but for those holding out a more affordable HD drawing tablet than the company, its newly announced Cintiq 13HD may prove compelling when it drops this April. An upgrade from bulkier, heavier and lower-res 12WX, the roughly $1,000 13HD is set to provide users with a 13.3″ 1920 x 1080 pixel display, 2048 levels of pressure sensitivity, tilt recognition, a streamlined 3-in-1 HDMI/USB/power cable, a new power pen, removable stand and more. The new tablet doesn’t support multi-touch capabilities, lacks touch strips and comes with fewer customizable buttons than previous Cintiqs, however.

One understated, but interesting (and essential) feature is the tablet’s ability to be used by right and left-handed users since 13HD’s cord juts out of one side and would otherwise potentially inhibit lap usage. Of course… a wireless connection would’ve made that a non-issue.

Wacom’s promo vid isn’t exactly a real-world look at the tablet’s functionality, but you can take a gander at it below until we get our hands on one at CA.
