If you thought Wacom’s Cintiq Companion was the best tablet/screen hybrid solution from the company’s portfolio then you might want to change your thought. Wacom that specializes in graphics tablets and related products has now come up with a new line of hybrid tablets under their new expanded series MobileStudio Pro. Nobody would ever have imagined that pen-friendly OS and applications could drape such a popularity in the market especially when the basic tablets market is declining compared to the desktops or laptops. But, a dedicated and more streamlined solution is always rewarded and loved by the targeted users. That’s what Wacom has been doing.
Wacom’s new MobilePro series of tablets running on Windows 10 are pretty expensive than the company’s previous lineup.
MobileStudio has six configurations, four 13.3-inch, and two 15.6-inch models. All running on Microsoft’s latest and much appreciated Windows 10 OS and have a new stylus. With the new tablets lineup, the company also releases Pro Pen 2, a new stylus with improved precision, lesser lag and 8,192 levels of sensitivity.
Wacom writes for the Pro Pen 2 -
Delivering 4x greater accuracy and pressure sensitivity than the previous Pro Pen, Wacom continues to focus on pen performance and creating an intuitive experience that is free-flowing and transcends the digital divide. Users will also discover virtually lag-free tracking which helps one find that creative groove faster and maintain focus for longer periods of time.
They deliver a larger work area for the artists to improvise their ideas. These tablets have 4K resolution, high color performance as well as superior NVIDIA Quadro graphics. With the power of Windows 10 and the powerful hardware, these tablets are eligible to run industry-standard applications such as Photoshop and illustrator as well as demanding 3D creative software applications. Both the series include Intel RealSense 3D camera.
The MobileStudio 13 models have IPS (in-plane switching), 2.5K displays with gamuts rated at 96 percent of Adobe RGB. Prices vary with storage capacity: $1,500 for a 64GB SSD, $1,800 for 128GB, $2,000 for 256GB and $2,500 for 512GB.
The MobileStudio 15.6 models use a 4K (UHD resolution) display rated at 94 percent Adobe RGB. The cheaper $2,400 model incorporates Nvidia Quadro M600M processor with 2GB of video RAM and a 256GB SSD, while the $3,000 model has Nvidia Quadro M1000M with 4GB of video RAM and a 512GB SSD.
All the tablets are currently listed on company’s website with the coming son tag.
