Wacom releases Intuos5 line of graphics tablets

Wacom has announced its new Intuos5 range of professional graphics tablets.

The new line-up uses the multi-touch support in Windows 7 and Mac OS X Lion to augment the Intuos range’s pen input system with gestural controls for rotating and scaling images.

A new on-screen Express View Display provides an at-a-glance overview of gesture control and ExpressKey assignments, and the pressure sensitivity curve for the pen.

The ExpressKeys themselves have received a makeover, along with the pressure-sensitive Touch Ring, now sporting a rather more minimal – and, we’d guess, more sensitive – design.

Each of the tablets in the range can now also support an optional snap-in wireless module, rather than wireless support being available only in a single model.

The Intuos5 is available in five models, in three sizes, three of which support multi-touch, as set out in this comparison chart on the company’s Pan-Asia website.

All of the tablets are available to order now. Prices range from $229 to $469.
