Wacom’s Cintiq line of drawing tablets is the cream of the crop when it comes to digital graphics editing and creation, and the 12WX long reigned as an impressive entry-level option for those with limited budgets and/or available work space. But the 12WX is over five years old, and both display and drawing tablet tech has advanced, which is why it’s excellent news that Wacom is introducing the all-new Cintiq 13HD today.
The 13HD has more in common with the recently-launched and larger 22HD and 24HD tablets than the outgoing 12WX; it features 2048 levels of pressure sensitivity on its 1920×1080 HD LED 13-inch display, versus just 1024 on the 12WX, which had a maximum resolution of 1280×800. The 13HD crams as many pixels as the 22HD boasts into a screen that’s 40 percent smaller, resulting in a much higher pixel density for crisper text and image rendering.
The Cintiq 13HD also comes with an integrated stand, which locks in at four viewing angles, including flat, 22 degrees, 35 degrees and 50 degrees, and can be used on either a hard flat surface like a desk or your lap. It’s the only Cintiq that’s really lap-appropriate, in fact, so if you’re looking for something with relative portability this is the way to go.
Wacom will begin selling the Cintiq 13HD direct from its own online store and through select partners at the beginning of April, and it will retail for $ 999.95. That might sound like a lot to pay for a drawing tablet that still requires either a Mac or PC to work, but it’s a bargain compared to the $ 2,000 you’ll pay for the next-level-up 22HD. I owned the 12WX myself, and was a huge fan, so I can’t wait to get one of these in for testing closer to launch.
Remember that Wacom has also teased a standalone drawing tablet to be unveiled later this year, so combined with this 13HD release, which has been hotly anticipated in the digital arts community, the company is shaping up to have a very big year indeed.
It’s only been half a year since the peculiar PadFone made its much-delayed entry into select markets, and earlier this week, ASUS’ launch of its second-gen phone-in-tablet brings us back to this old question: are we better off with just one mobile screen instead of two? Ask any ordinary manufacturer and the answer is likely the latter, because who doesn’t want to sell more products? Similarly, carriers would likely back such manufacturers for the sake of selling more data plans, even if they admire ASUS’ efforts (and they could already be selling ASUS tablets in the first place). Some folks also argue that if you have to carry the tablet module with you anyway, you might as well have two separate devices for better multitasking.
It seems like there’s a huge mountain to climb here, but on the flip side, ASUS’ innovative differentiation does have some advantages. You only need one data plan (and no tethering required) for both form factors, you get to keep the same data in one place instead of having to duplicate them and you can pretty much instantly switch between a small screen and a large screen for the same content. Not to mention that there’s also the added functionality of charging up the phone while it’s sitting inside the tablet. Alas, the original PadFone and PadFone Station didn’t quite hit the spot: the combined weight and bulk made it tough to justify the phone-in-tablet idea, which is why we said it’s all about the PadFone 2 in our review. Let’s see if ASUS has done it right this time ’round.

Earlier this month, rumors emerged about potential native screenshot functionality in Windows Phone 8. While existing Windows Phone 7 devices do not include a basic screenshot feature, Microsoft is building this minor, but useful, function into Windows Phone 8. WP7App.de managed to activate the screenshot part of Windows Phone 8 in the recently leaked SDK, revealing that Microsoft will use the Windows and Camera button combination to take screenshots natively.
Although the execution is similar to rival platforms like iOS, Windows Phone 8 will store the screenshots in a separate album within the Photos hub — not in the camera roll. This serves to separate screenshots from photos taken on the phone’s Camera. While this is a minor…
This case designed to perfectly fit the Samsung Galaxy S3 I9300 is a revolutionary 2 part carrying case made of a high quality polycarbonate exterior shell and a shock absorbing thin silicone lining that gives users the best of both worlds while allowing easy access to all ports. The hard shell comes in black and the silicone comes in a different colour giving the phone a lively look and feel. The case does not add bulk to the phone yet gives it a firm protection. It is also available in many other colours from our store.Related Posts:
What’s better than one GoPro camera? Two, naturally. But what about 50?
Well, control over 50 GoPro Hero cameras is exactly what you’ll get with the freshly announced WiFi BacPac + WiFi Remote Combo Kit.
The combo will allow you to WiFi-enable both your HD Hero and HD Hero2 cameras, a la BacPac, which is an attachable casing. Then, the WiFi Remote will go with you wherever your creative and sport-tastic desires may lead, including underwater, to control up to 50 GoPro cameras at a time from up to 600 feet.
The BacPac will also allow you to control just as many cameras from your smartphone or tablet, as soon as the GoPro App is available. The company promises it’s “coming soon.” The app will then allow you to not only control the cameras, but live preview and play back videos and photos taken with your GoPro. You can also transfer content from the GoPro to your smartphone or tablet via WiFi, as well as livestream GoPro content direct to your phone.
To celebrate the launch, GoPro paired up with skater Ryan Sheckler who skated through Manhattan with 50 GoPros set up along his path. The result is this:
The Wi-Fi BacPac + Wi-Fi Remote Combo Kit is now available for $ 99.99 on GoPro.com and other various retailers in the U.S. and Europe.
