New Wacom Bamboo Is First Graphic Tablet With Tactile Multitouch

Wacom seems to finally understand that sometimes a stylus isn't as good as a finger. The five new Bamboo tablets includes one that is touch only, another that is pen only, and three that have a combo of both.

The $US69 Bamboo Touch is basically the product to add a multitouch trackpad to your laptop or desktop. The 5.0 x 3.5 inch surface is larger than the typical touchpad and supports all the typical gestures, including two finger zooming and scrolling. The Bamboo Pen costs the same amount and is, as you might expect, pen only. Then there is the $US99 Bamboo Pen and Touch for the best of both worlds. And the $US129 Bamboo Craft and $US199 Bamboo Fun that are larger and are bundled with lots of software.

I am still most intrigued by the Bamboo Touch since I think everyone should have the goodness of a multitouch touchpad and the ability to two finger swipe all day long. The new tablets work with both Mac and PCs (Win 7 support included) and are attached by a USB cord. [Wacom]
