Wacom Introduces New Bamboo Pad Line

With the Cintiq and Intuos lines recently refreshed, Wacom seems to be shooting for tablet trifecta territory by giving its entry-level Bamboo line an overhaul. While Bamboo devices used to serve as pretty basic versions of Wacom’s other tablets, the new Bamboo Pad is a 4.21 x 2.63″ multitouch trackpad packed with a stylus supporting 512 levels of pressure sensitivity.

Now available in a silver wired ($49) version, plus a wireless ($79) model with four color options, the Bamboo Pad is compatible with Mac and PC. Mac users need to install drives to get it to work. Windows 7 and 8 users can plug and play without installing drivers and also get access to a free download of the Bamboo app.

Anybody hoping to do much drawing on this device will want to note that the stylus doesn’t come with an “eraser” nib and seems to pack just one potentially programmable button. It looks pretty similar to Wacom’s mobile device-centric Bamboo Feel, which is also compatible with the Bamboo Pad.

You can see the Bamboo Pad (and its stylus) in motion in Wacom’s official product video, below.
