Well I was right....I knew Wacom would never release a Full Standalone tablet. And the Mobility of this Cintiq is in the 3 in 1 Cord, which will make it more portable then the 12wx ever was.
I like how they managed to make it thin...it looks more like an Intuos with a Screen then anything else.
However I do find kind of troubling some of the omissions made to this $999 Cintiq that are present on the much cheaper $350-450 Lenovo LT1423...
1. No Multi touch Support
2. No Wi-fi connection option
3. No Battery Pack
The whole wi-fi thing seemed kind of so-so....but I was certain they would enabled touch support since that is so common place now. And the Battery pack omission is also kind of disappointing, since this will draw alot more power from the host laptop.
Still...it looks to be an interesting addition to the Cintiq Line.
...also interestingly they mention its availability as Early April....much sooner then the "Summer" release they mentioned in the Facebook Post. Change in the release date? or does Wacom have more surprises in store?
