Wacom launches Intuos5 multi-touch tablets

Wacom has launched the latest iteration of its professional pen tablet range, the Intuos5 series. The creative tablets are aimed at professional photographers, designers and artists as a method of fine input for applications including Photoshop. The new Intuos5 series includes multi-touch support, Express View heads-up display software that shows current settings on the tablet, and a new soft-touch matte finish.

The new tablets support both PCs and Mac as well as multi-touch gestures made by hand along with the included stylus. Finger-based gesture support includes support for zoom, scroll, pan, and the ability to rotate digital content. Customized gestures can also be set for individual applications to help users streamline their workflow.

Three models are available in small (4x6-inches, $265), medium (6x8-inches, $400) and large (13x8-inches, $550). A pen-only version in the medium size is also available for $350. Prices are in Australian dollars, where the models are already shipping. US prices and availability have not yet been announced. [via Engadget]

    I wonder how long it will take until Apple makes Wacom tablets irrelevant...

    By the way

    You mention that it supports PC and Mac, but that's technically wrong. It is the software which supports the device, specifically the kernel and the drivers. For instance, wacom may not mention that its tablets work in other OS, 'cause they don't develop drivers for other platforms; however these tablets are pretty well supported for GNU/Linux, because the Linux kernel supports them, not otherwise.
