A Mobile Wacom Cintiq?
Looks like Wacom is finally going to get a mobile tablet out next summer. I’m sure it’ll be cool, but the question is how much are you willing to pay for a mobile Cintiq? With their new Cintiq 13HD priced at $999, I’m guessing a Wacom mobile tablet would probably be priced between $1000 to $1500. If that’s the case, it’ll be too expensive of a toy for me. It seems hard to do serious work on a mobile device. Most intensive creative works are done with other tools and references at home or in the office with headphones blasting. So I’m very curious what their selling points would be. We’ll just have to wait and see, it’s all speculation at this point.
Recently I’ve been looking into the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 for sketching while on the go. I’ll probably get that soon. It seems like a good sketch pad.
“We’ve heard you shouting out loud for a Wacom mobile tablet for creative uses. Well… we’re listening. We’ve read your email and spoken to many about an on-the-go dream device. It will come. This summer. We’re working 24/7 on it. And yes, it has a real pressure-sensitive professional pen, smooth multi-touch, an HD display, and other valuable features that you haven’t seen in other tablets.”
