Touching The Bamboo Tablet

There’s a new Wacom Bamboo floating around.  What sets this apart is that its a touch tablet. It a multitouch where the Wacom software makes good use of it.  Providing pretty good gestures for you creative programs.  Now,  some beef with it is that it’s an super huge laptop touchpad.  Nothing more. It really doesn’t make sense.  If you’re gonna make a touch something, make it a touchscreen.  That’s all I can say.  A mouse, trackball takes much less space than a touch tablet.

There are some rumors that there are larger Bamboo Touch with pen input.  If that is the case, then that would make more sense.  It might even make it much more valued item than the Intuos4.  Imagine using the pen for your drawing what nots, and switch to your fingers for other takes.  Now that’s something I would buy.

What’s even wierd is that it is not listed on Wacom site (US  and international).  Interesting.  Well take a look at video to decide if its worth it or not.

Thanks to leopardsoup for having the Bamboo Touch and showing it to everybody.
