Wacom PL-900 LCD tablet

Wacom on Friday introduced its latest LCD pen tablet, the 19-inch PL-900. The device has a 4:3 native aspect ratio that can be automatically switched to a 16:10 widescreen format via an auto-sensing video scaler. The display sports 1280x1024 resolution and has been improved compared to the company's previous products with a wider viewing angle and an anti-glare coating.

Wacom's LCD tablets allow users to handwrite digital notes, work with digital documents, files and presentations using a natural interface method. Connections include a DVI-I port while the same type of output enables users to hook it up to external displays, including projectors. The tablet is compatible with Windows and Mac operating systems.

Though there is no mention of a US release, the Wacom PL-900 is currently available in the UK, priced at the equivalent of just over $1,700 after tax. [via SlashGear]

    Too cool. Hopefully they've fixed that regrettable mess of cables and cords of the Cintiq 12WX - it really hampers the portability factor.

    The DVI/power cable paired with weight make it statue'esque...

    What they need is one running an OLED with power and data running over FW800...
    until then, along with another video card, you practically need another desk just for it.
