Wacom launches new Intuos Pro Small graphics tablet

Wacom has launched the Intuos Pro Small | Kingfisher, a new 10.6-inch graphics tablet aimed at professional artists on the move.

The model rounds out the company’s line of professional tablets once more, its 13.2-inch Medium and 16.8-inch Large counterparts having been updated in 2017.

Smaller, lighter and more sensitive than the previous-generation model
The Kingfisher fills a similar gap in the market to the Small model from the previous generation of Intuous tablets, but with a few notable improvements.

It’s smaller and lighter, for one thing – two inches narrower and half a pound lighter – but actually has a slightly larger drawing area, thanks to a narrower surrounding bezel.

Like its Medium and Large counterparts, it also now comes with Wacom’s Pro Pen 2, which raises the levels of pressure sensitivity from 2,096 to 8,192.

Other than that, the specs are largely unchanged, as you can see from the comparison table below.
