Anyone else feeling left out?

I noted today this from WACOM;

http://cintiqcompanion.wacom.com/en/

So ... Windows 8 and Android. Anyone else feel left out here?

Not at all. This a piece of hardware, not an app, there's no way we were going to see an iPad/Cintiq tablet. My initial guess was that it would be an Android tablet, looks like they're going with a few different models.

That being said, I've been waiting to see what their tablet turns out like for a while but GEEZ...talk about a steep price tag.

Well, there is the Intuos Creative Stylus that works with iPad...

http://intuoscreativestylus.wacom.com/en/

Looks very intriguing. I might get me one.

Not at all. The new stylus is all that the iPad really needs. With apps like Sketchbook and Procreate I've never felt the need to have Photoshop on the road. Even some concept and storyboard artists prefer it.

Interesting, the Windows 8 version looks like the tablet I have always wanted. Will keep an eye on that one.

Hadn't seen the stylus yet but that is pretty sweet looking. I don't currently have an iPad that I really use (my wife has one that I borrow to read comics) but I'm looking at getting one in the fall, and I definitely wouldn't mind having a really nice stylus to sketch with.

I'm getting the stylus too. Don't care about the tablet.

I was impressed by the Wacom stylus, except for the fat rubber nib. I'm actually much more impressed by the fine point on the Jot Touch 4, although I'd like the opportunity to use both side-by-side.

Cheers

Jim

Got to admit I much prefer the idea of a re-chargeable stylus over a battery-powered one. Also being able to see the contact point where the nib actually touches the screen seems like a winning idea for those of us tired of guessing where the mark will land.

On the other hand, it looks like SketchPro (my iPad drawing app) supports palm rejection with the Wacom Stylus, not the Jot Touch. Since I generally rest my palm when drawing, that's a big feature for me.

The stubby fat nib makes it a no-go for me. A shame too because it seems like it's pretty solid otherwise.

I realize, and for what it does it's not really an unreasonable price. I was just expecting an art focused tablet that would somewhat compete with others on the market, not something that cost more than my laptop

The windows one looks great, but it should be expensive.
it runs pro software and that's what's important, but then again, major pro work should be done on a desktop.

it's probably too extreme for mobile in practice.

The hybrid one is neat. works like a cintiq when you plug it in to a desktop and runs android when you disconnect. I thought this was neat over the base cintiq because The hybrid has a battery in it and will run like a cintiq off a laptop without any external power just the battery.

The windows 8 version is what everyone wanted for a long time but the price is brutal to get it. its also a bit expensive to be carrying around like its meant to be. id love to have one but at that price i might as well buy the cintiq 22HD. i dont need the portability much =P.

Considering you get a mba and an iPad in one machine I don't think it's expensive.
