For the past few years, Wacom made great strides to make their tablets much more affordable.
Now, at CES 2020, the company unveiled their cheapest Wacom tablet yet: the new Wacom One, retailing for $399.
Going beyond that, the tablet also adds compatibility with Android devices, a premiere for these devices that usually work with just macOS or Windows.
Of course, you do need some dongles if you want to take advantage of the compatibilities to the max, as the Wacom One keeps HDMI, USB and power cable ports, but doesn’t add USB-C like many wanted.
According to the company, the Wacom One is geared towards “creative beginners, social content creators and visual thinkers”, so the specs are not quite pro-level yet.
The tablet is 13.3 inches, so the same size as a Wacom Cintiq Pro 13, and just like that model, has a 1920 x 1080 px resolution.
The Cintiq’s 87% Adobe RGB color gamut is swapped with 72% NTSC.
The tablet is also joined by its very own Wacom One Pen, which has a much lower pressure sensitivity that Wacom Pro Pen 2 – 4,096 levels vs 8,192 for the Pro Pen 2.
It weighs 2.2 lbs (1 kg), so it’s just as sturdy as previous Wacom tablets and ready to be tossed into a bag.
You can already find it in Wacom’s online store but don’t rush an order just yet!
