Wacom Introduces New Affordable Tablets

September 15, 2007

The Wacom Graphire has been an inexpensive way to get a graphics tablet to use as a more natural input device for your computer. Wacom has come out with new tablets and a new name. Graphire is out and Bamboo is in.

If you simply want a tablet at the lowest price possible without any extra software, then there is a model for you. The biz-oriented Bamboo only comes in black and only in the small (4″ x 5″) size. List price is only $79.99 and it will be discounted from there.

If you want bundled software, a choice in colors or a choice in size then you want the Bamboo Fun. The software included is Adobe Photoshop Elements (5 for PC/4 for Mac), Nik Color Efex Pro 2 filters and Corel Painter Essentials 2. The colors available are black, white, silver and electric blue. Sizes are small (4″ x 5″) and medium (6″ x 8″). It is priced at $99.99 for the small and $199.99 for the medium.

The Bamboo tablets are a nice upgrade from the Graphire series. Added are programmable buttons and a touch ring for zooming and scaling. The pen has 512 distinct levels of pressure. If you are stuck with a mouse, a tablet is a huge upgrade. For those who already have an older tablet, it might be time to look for a new one.
