Hey everyone – Some very cool news from the awesome folks over at Wacom today! Finally, after years and years of pestering…..a Wacom mobile device is here! Not just one…but TWO! Wacom has announced the Cintiq Companion and the Cintiq Companion Hybrid. Two flavours allowing artists to choose what works best for them. The Cintiq Companion is a Windows 8 device that packs a very powerful punch with solid state drive choices and 8 gb of RAM. Awesome stuff. Furthermore, the Cintiq Companion Hybrid is an Android tablet! The ability to sketch, model, and just overall CREATE on the go is really great. However, for me, the big excitement is the fact that it is Wacom bringing these devices out. These guys have been designing and refining the best devices for digital creativity for a long time. Having a fully integrated Cintiq, on a mobile tablet with all of the pressure sensitivity and multi-touch capabilities is pretty damn intriguing.
