It’s barely been a week into the new year and Wacom has already kicked things off with a new, more affordable tablet for digital creators.
Announced at CES 2020, the Wacom One has a 13.3-inch screen, a 1920 x 1080 HD display, weighs 2.2 pounds (1kg), and covers all the basics of a drawing tablet:
In terms of hardware, the screen has surface friction which gives it a “paper-like” feel when drawing. The stylus works just like any stylus – with the ability to be used as a variety of digital pens and brushes using your favorite drawing apps.
In case you want to try something new, the Wacom One also comes with software packs which include apps like Bamboo Paper (which turns your display screen into a sketchpad). They aren’t groundbreaking per se, but if you don’t have the time or patience to download something better, then these built-in programs should more than suffice.
While its ability to connect to Macs and PCs is a no-brainer, what’s interesting is the Wacom One can also be connected to a select few Android tablets and smartphones. This feature could definitely come in handy for a digital creator looking to move their work to and from their phones or secondary tablets to the Wacom One.
It’s pretty obvious the Wacom One caters to beginning digital content creators, as it doesn’t have many unique features. Still, a $399.95 drawing tablet is nothing to scoff at. If you’re just starting out in the world of digital artistry, then it does not seem like a bad choice for a beginning tablet.
You can find all of the Wacom One specifications (and maybe even make your first big new year’s purchase) on the Wacom webpage.
