Wacom, a graphics drawing tool most pro designers tote around or at the very least drool over, introduced a compact tablet with a full HD display on Tuesday called Cintiq 13HD.
As the name suggests, the Cintiq 13HD boasts a 13.3-inch, 1,920-by-1,080-pixel resolution, wide-angle display mounted on an adjustable, three-point stand that is also detachable. The entire form factor debuts at 4.75-by-9.75-by-0.5 inches and 2.65 pounds, which is considerably smaller and more mobile than the earlier 22HD, 24HD, and 24HD touch Cintiq models that are mostly stationary and gobble up 2 feet of desktop space.
The chassis notably sports four changeable shortcut buttons, called ExressKeys, the classic Rocker Ring, and a home button, and the swanky tablet further comes with Wacom’s famous pen. The cordless and battery-free Pro Pen specifically touts 2,048 levels of pressure, tilt recognition, and two side toggles, and it includes nine various—standard, felt, and stroke— nibs, a desk stand, and carry case.
Last but not least, a regular USB 2.0 data connection through a three-in-one cable pipes the HD display power and signal. The Wacom Cintiq 13HD for Mac and Windows computers launches in early April for $999 in the United States and £749.99 in the United Kingdom.
