Wacom quietly releases two new pen displays

WacomDTU2231Thumb

Without fanfare, Wacom has posted two new pen displays for sale on their website. The DTU-2231 and DTU-1631 are part of their “specialty industries” line. Not focused on graphic design like the Cintiq line, but more than adequate for most on-screen pen input needs, such as signing, editing and annotating documents.

Sunday Morning on CBS took a look at the people behind Google Doodles, you know, that fancy art they do for their homepage logo everyday. No surprise, at least for us, the creation process shows a lot of Wacom Cintiq tablets. Great showing for pen input. But what’s this? A Tablet PC? Score!

Wacom has updated their Cintiq 21UX with 2048 levels of pressure sensitivity but not multi-touch control. Instead, the new tablet display sports a pair of touchpads on the back of the bezel, allowing for many of the same functions as multi-touch gestures. The “Touch Strips,” used in conjunction with the thumb-controlled bezel buttons, allow up […]

CES 2010: At the Wacom booth

Finally! We found the Wacom booth at CES and put our hands (and pen) on several products, including a Fujitsu Tablet PC. Not having the best luck with using multi-touch and pen simultaneously. Will definitely need to keep touch turned off for most of my usage.   

CES 2010: eDGe, Alex and more eReaders from Marvell

We got our hands on the latest eReaders at the Marvell booth. The enTourage eDGe and Alex from Spring Design were both there. Amy shares her thoughts on the Alex.

Pogoplug

Tableteers, like Geeks of all stripes, love to see gadgets and gear under the Christmas Tree or in their stocking.

Admittedly we’ve helped spread some of the confusion, so apologies for that. But let’s hope this clears it up. Lenovo is sprinkling review units of the x200T Tablet PC and the […]

Rant: Wacom needs better PR

WacomBambooTouchBB

Check that: Wacom needs PR. Period. I don’t use this word very often, in fact this may be my first time, but I am flummoxed, absolutely flummoxed, by our complete lack of information on the new Wacom multi-touch products. And I don’t just mean us here at GBM. I mean, as far as I can […]

It has been widely reported that attendance at CES 2009 was down. While it was much easier to walk around the halls without feeling like you were stuck in a New Your subway, we stayed busier than ever just trying to keep up with everything. There were definitely good products to see and great folks […]
