If you don’t want an extra PC/Mac to manage and still want to work in the field or on the go I can see where this product comes in. I’m interested to see which Android apps will take full advantage of the Cintiq’s capabilities. Opportunities for developers that understand the needs of the pro graphics market.


The logical product for Wacom to finally create for it’s elite graphics professional customers and was my recommendation in a think tank I attended last year so hope you all love it. I’m still waiting for mine so have to keep my ASUS Eee Slate for a little longer :)


This is pure and simply the best pen/tablet ever and the one I use today. So nice to use with my MacBook Pro :)
