Not long after Wacom announced its new Cintiq Companion Windows and Android tablets, the company has refreshed and consolidated its line of opaque pressure-sensitive graphics tablets. As part of this consolidation, the Intuos5 Touch has been renamed Intuos Pro to more clearly indicate its target market of creative professionals and photographers and differentiate it from Wacom’s consumer tablets. The only other difference between the Intuos5 Touch and the Pro is that the formerly optional wireless accessory kit is now included with the Pro model. It continues to be available in small, medium and large sizes.
To further unify the brand under a single umbrella, Wacom’s consumer line of Bamboo graphics tablets will now be called, simply, Intuos. Beyond the name, however, Wacom has totally redesigned these tablets, which are available in two small- and one medium-sized models. Wireless connectivity for these new tablets requires the optional wireless accessory kit. The Bamboo name will be retained for consumer navigation devices and pressure-sensitive pens.
Intuos Pro Pen & Touch: $249 (small); $349 (medium); $499 (large)
Intuos Pen: $79 (small); Intuos Pen & Touch: $99 (small); $199 (medium)
Optional wireless accessory kit: $39
