Wacom have just announced the Wacom Cintiq Companion, which is effectively a fully-formed tablet-based PC that runs Windows 8 or Windows 8 Pro. Also announced is the Cintiq Companion Hybrid, which is the Android-based version, albeit with slightly lower specifications, and not intended as a fully-functional computer. Both devices can be attached to another computer and act as regular tablet.
Both devices sport 13.3 inch IPS displays, Wi-Fi, front and rear cameras, 8GB RAM, USB connectivity, adjustable stand, and a claimed battery life of 7 hours.
The Cintiq Companion also has an optional bluetooth keyboard to further extend functionality. Both products will be released in October. For a full comparison of both products check out the Wacom product page.
If you’re an iPad user and feeling a little left out, there is also the Intuos Creative Stylus tailor-made for iOS.Back to Top
