Today Wacom unveiled a “newly-redesigned” Cintiq 21UX, and while it doesn’t look considerably different than its predecessors, there are a few interesting updates to note. First off, the 21.3-inch LCD tablet can now detect 2048 levels of pressure, and that in conjunction with the stylus’s new Tip Sensor means you’ll have more control over pressure-sensitive tools, and you won’t have to press as hard, which is nice if you go through stylus tips as often as I do.
But the biggest addition is a pair of rear-mounted Touch Strips on either side of the display which work with a set of Toggle Buttons on the front, allowing you to quickly switch between up to 4 different application-specific functions, theoretically making your productivity skyrocket. $1,999 available from Wacom sometime in April.
