Wacom Announces New Cintiq 13HD Tablet
It's not the standalone "dream tablet" Wacom'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.
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.
