Wacom has updated its offering with a wireless Bluetooth solution, the Intuos4 professional pen tablet now featuring Bluetooth wireless technology. Wacom says removing the USB cable shackles makes the Intuos4 Wireless an ideal choice for collaborative work sessions, client presentations or use in a seminar setting such as an art class or photography seminar.
The Intuos 4 Wireless has all of the bells and whistles as its corded predecessor including Wacom’s tip sensor technology, 2048 levels of pressure sensitivity, eight customizable ExpressKeys with illuminated displays, a finger-sensitive touch ring that controls up to four different functions per application, and seamless integration with popular software applications.
While the the Wcom wired Intuos4 comes in four different sizes, the Intuos4 Wireless is only available in a medium version measuring 14.3″ x 10.0″ x 0.6″ (363mm x 253mm x 15 mm) with 40 square inches of working area. The unit weighs 2.2 lb (1kg) with the battery, which is recharged via USB. It is Mac and PC compatible.
Wacom plans to begin shipping the Intuos4 Wireless in the US and Canada in late February/early March with a price of US$399. It is scheduled for launch in Mexico and other Latin American countries in subsequent months. Release details for other markets have yet to be announced. (www.wacom.com)
