Wacom debuts new mobile pen computers

PORTLAND, OR — Wacom (www.wacom.com) has introduced MobileStudio Pro, a new line of lightweight mobile computers featuring the company’s new pen technology. MobileStudio Pro features the newly-designed Wacom Pro Pen 2, with four times higher pen accuracy and pressure sensitivity than the company’s previous professional pen. It also features enhanced resolution, leading-edge graphics, excellent color performance and a 3D camera.

Wacom has developed a family of 13.3-inch and 15.6-inch MobileStudio Pro computers with a starting price of $1,499. There are six configurations to choose from. Four 13.3-inch models combine maximum mobility with high performance and color accuracy, while two 15.6-inch models deliver a larger work area, 4K resolution, high color performance and Nvidia Quadro graphics. Bundled with Windows 10, MobileStudio Pro has the power professional creatives need to run industry-standard applications such as Photoshop and Illustrator as well as demanding 3D creative software applications. 

"Unlike most general-purpose mobile tablets created for the mass market, Wacom’s MobileStudio Pro was designed specifically for the needs of the creative professional and how they work," says Ed Neumann, senior VP of marketing for Wacom’s creative branded business. "Our long-standing relationship with the professional creative community enabled us to develop a game-changing solution for the creative market that exceeds customer expectations and provides the best, most natural and precise creative experience imaginable."

MobileStudio Pro is the first product to offer Wacom’s latest pen technology, the Pro Pen 2. Users will notice virtually lag-free tracking. 3D modelers and designers will find a host of features in the MobileStudio Pro that will make their workflow more efficient. While individual models of MobileStudio Pro vary, all come with Intel processors and memory and storage configurations, ranging from 64GB up to 512GB. Additionally, for users wanting to capture 3D scans as a start to their development process, select models include the Intel 3D RealSense camera.  Users can bring a scan into a software application like ZBrush or Fusion 360 and build a 3-D model from there.

MobileStudio Pro is also outfitted with ExpressKeys and a Touch Ring. Also, the optional Wacom Link technology enables users to attach MobileStudio Pro to any Mac or PC and use it as a standard Cintiq display.
