Wacom's New Tablets Pack Multitouch and HUD Software

By Jamie Condliffe on at

If you spend a lot of time in Photoshop, chances are you use — or would benefit from — a tablet instead of a mouse. Wacom's offerings tend to be some of the best, and their new Intuos5 range seems no exception.

The new Intuos5 tablets come with multitouch gesture support and "Express View" head-up display software, alongside a rather pleasing soft-touch feel. They now support all the standard Mac and Windows multitouch gestures — hello Windows 8 — simultaneously with pen use. You can create custom gestures, too, while the head-up display shows current tablet settings on your computer screen.

According to Engadget, the tablet will come in three sizes: 4x6", 6x8" and 13x8"and launch today in Europe. British pricing kicks off at £200, £330 and £430 respectively. [Wacom via Engadget]
