Wacom has lauched the new Cintiq Companion and Cintiq Companion Hybrid creative tablets for Windows 8 and Android respectively.
The Cintiq Companion line, available in two models, enables creative professionals to work wherever they want. The Cintiq Companion runs Windows 8 and full versions of creative software and offers everything a customer would expect from Wacom’s Cintiq products. The Cintiq Companion Hybrid, on the other hand, is a traditional Cintiq when plugged into a Mac or PC, but when used as a mobile device, works as a stand-alone Android tablet with enough power to do light sketching and start creative processes with suitable apps.
The Cintiq Companion Hybrid functions as a traditional Cintiq when connected to a Mac or PC. When unplugged, it is perfect for light, spontaneous work using AndroidTM apps. The tablet comes with a powerful Nvidia Tegra 4 processor, Android Jellybean and specially designed software such as the new Wacom Creative Canvas for painting and sketching.
An adjustable and detachable stand is also included with both products, offering four working angles, from flat to upright.
The Cintiq Companion is priced at £1649.99 (256 GB version) and £1999.99 (512 GB version). The Cintiq Companion Hybrid costs £1199.99 (16 GB) and £1299.99 (32 GB). All prices include VAT. Both tablets will be available on the Wacom e-Store from mid October 2013.
