17" screen, 1280 x 1024
1024 pressure sensitivity levels
$1700, but retails for $1300 in most online stores

Much more affordable than Cintiq for a student. Anyone have a chance to review it?

I think its way too small to be of any use honestly. For that money you can get a 30" screen + a widescreen intuos tablet.

Where do you get a 30" monitor with a Wacom for 1.300 / 1.700 USD?

i'd appreciate some decent competition to wacom. but, seeing how underwhelming regular tablets from other manufacturers have been there's little hope here that they can deliver a nice tablet-LCD that rivals the cintiq. i bet wacom has their patents covered in that area as well.

a size of 17-inch should be enough for a tablet-LCD/drawing surface though?

The 30" dell LCD is currently 1270$ from the dell website + the wacom (300$) and you are set ;)

check out small business under dell.com.

If they were smart they would let some people from this forum take it for a spin . I mean this website is a huge market for that product

It's always nice to see competition, but it doesn't have the look of a $1700 product. :shrug:

Like pogonip said, it would need a lot of positive feedback and reviews before people think about whipping out the credit card...

A wacom tablet doesnŽt compare to a LCD tablet, is not the same concept, you canŽt rotate the wacom tablet while painting, and honestly, a 17" LCD tablet for 1300 USD (I love the euro for this) is pretty cool, the cintiq is unafordable, IŽll check this product seriously.

Nice one, but do I see a Wacom Intuos pen in there? :D

EDIT: Darn, they're lookalikes.

Wacom sells their digitizers. In fact, most Tablet PC's use them. I think it would be safe to assume this is just a different plastic case built around a Wacom digitizer. I hope I'm wrong. As previously acknowledged, it would be a really good thing if there was some legitimate competition.

I don't think this uses Wacom technology because the pen has a battery. Because of Wacom's patents, pretty much everyone else has to resort to batteries in the pens rather than magnets.
