Wacom Bamboo tablet gets multi-touch support
An upcoming tablet PC from Wacom has been spotted on the Internet, thanks to an anonymous source. Specs aren't completely clear in the shots given to Engadget, with the text on the box for the device revealing mostly that the Bamboo Touch tablet will support multi-touch input. However, the move would lead to the first Wacom device designed to work with only finger contact, as its previous tablets like the Intuos 4 have always depended on pressure-based stylus control.
Advertising in the images suggests the control would be used more for general navigation, such as rotating, scrolling or zooming through photos.
The multi-touch input also automatically leads many to assume the tablet will ship with Windows 7, which supports multi-touch natively. The peripheral may also be released alongside the new operating system, which is scheduled for an October 22nd launch.
