The Wacom Intuos4 was launched last year, and just recently, the Japanese maker has announced the wireless version of the popular pen tablet. Incorporating Bluetooth wireless technology, the Intuos4 Wireless also features convenient USB charging directly from your computer.
Tokyo, Japan – April 14, 2010 – Wacom has announced the Intuos4 Wireless professional pen tablet which features Bluetooth wireless technology. In addition, the medium-sized Intuos4 Wireless fits easily into most computer laptop bags for creative professionals and students.
The Intuos4 and Bluetooth
Bluetooth wireless technology is a global communications standard found in millions of computers and mobile devices that allows these devices to communicate reliably over distances of up to 10 meters. The Intuos4 Wireless features convenient USB charging directly from the computer.
The Intuos4 Grip Pen
The Grip Pen that comes with the Intuos4 Wireless features Wacom’s proprietary Tip Sensor technology, offering users near-zero (1g) starting pressure for the most sensitive Intuos pen tablet performance to-date. Additionally, the Intuos4 Wireless pen has 2048 levels of pressure, doubling the resolution of the pen’s pressure curve to further enhance feedback and expand creative control within software applications that support pressure sensitivity. The Grip Pen also features a pressure-sensitive eraser and two customizable side switches that can be set for commands such as double-click and right-click. The Intuos4 Wireless ships with a handy clip-on pen holder for securing the pen to the tablet when not being used.
Breakthrough Design Improves Workflow, Boosts Productivity
Available in medium size only, the Intuos4 Wireless has an asymmetrical design that puts the Touch Ring and the customizable ExpressKeys on one side of the tablet, making them all available to the user’s non-dominant hand. The application-specific ExpressKeys allow you to place commonly-used commands right at the user’s fingertips. Illuminated OLED displays provide helpful reminders as to the function of each ExpressKey. To switch the tablet from right-handed to left-handed use, the user simply rotates the tablet 180 degrees and changes the orientation of the illuminated icons within the Wacom Tablet driver software.
The Touch Ring on the Intuos4 Wireless is capable of controlling up to four different functions in any application. A button located in the center of the ring “toggles” the ring between application-specific functions such as zoom, scroll, brush size adjustment or canvas rotation. The position of the illuminated LED located along the perimeter of the Touch Ring indicates the current function.
