Wacom Technology has announced the CintiqPartner, a pen tablet designed to use the Grip Pen from a Cintiq interactive pen display and “thereby provide fast cursor control and easy desktop access in multiple-monitor configurations involving a Cintiq. Cintiq interactive pen displays allow users to work directly on the screen with the natural control of a pen. The CintiqPartner complements that capability by allowing the same Cintiq pen to be used on the CintiqPartner pen tablet to navigate on any traditional CRT or LCD monitor.” The USB-based CintiqPartner works with both Macs and PCs, and has an active area of 6″ x 8″. The Cintiq Grip Pen controls the cursor in any application, offers 512 levels of pressure-sensitivity and provides “pen-point precision whether used directly on the Cintiq screen or on the CintiqPartner tablet.” It will be available by the end of June 2003 for US$199.99.
