In what makes the first real Wacom news I’ve heard in a long while, a Cintiq 24HD was just givent the stamp of approval. This is according to Engadget, the tech blog whose writers devote more time combing through FCC filings than I spend combing through my hair. The new tablet has the nomenclature “24HD” which would seem to imply a 24″ screen and at least 1920×1080 resolution, both being steps up from the 21UX 21″ inch screen and paultry 1600×1200 resolution. Without any other information to go on, I would surmise that we still are not going to see 3D, the innovation I was hoping for, on this new model. Still, at least we’re not just seeing a
re-body slight upgrade of the previous model. Here are a few more details.
Wacom 24HD Display
A quick look at the Wacom website shows the 21UX as “out of stock.” Hopefully that’s a sign that folks with way more discretionary funds that I have will be able to get their hands on one of these bad boys sooner than later. Oh, and since it is an FCC filing there is no information on price. Hopefully we’ll get an announcement soon.
