The ‘pen’ function is self-sensing for over 1,000 different levels of pressure, making it one of the most sensitive and intuitive drawing tablet pens on the market. In addition to a pressure sensitive pen, the Intuos models come with multi-touch functions and express keys. The multi-touch surface allows you to control the tablet surface with your fingers–while you’re still using it! You can zoom in and out, scroll to any side, and even reposition your artwork all with the touch of your fingers.
Connect Graphics Tablets Wirelessly
Many drawing tablets are wired only—meaning you will have to plug them into your laptop, computer or other device in order to use them. The Wacom Intuos Pen and Touch tablets, however, are capable of both wired and wireless operation. Wireless operation is great if you don’t want to be tangled up in too many cords, don’t have any USB ports, don’t want to take up less space in a public area, or simply don’t want to have to wait for the USB connector to work in order to start using your tablet.
To make any Wacom Intuos Pen and Touch tablet wireless, all you need to do is purchase the Wacom Wireless Accessory Kit. The kit is available for a retail price of $45.00 at most retail locations. The wireless accessory kit essentially functions as a portable battery for the tablet, enabling you to use it–however you like! The wireless kit is capable of up to 15 hours of battery life, although the battery life can depend on the size of the tablet as well as how it is being used.
And best of all: it doesn’t take forever to recharge! Fully recharging the Wacom Intuos Pen and Touch wireless kit takes only about 6 hours! 85% battery life is also achievable with about 3.5 hours of charging.
