  1. Inkshow or hands on asap please!
    Wonder what real batt life will be.

    This will be my new buy or the Motion CL900 which should be released within weeks

    • I think NTrig tech has evolved over the years. It appears that most of the upcoming W7 tablet with digitizer are choosing for NTrig. Maybe for the pricetag but Wacom should watch out that they don’t miss the tablet train.

      Time will tell.

  2. 3G model not out till august, very interested for a review please. speed, inking and battery life.
