Sacrifices workspace, multi-touch capabilities

Wacom has launched a new product in its Bamboo line of drawing tablets, the Splash. The tablet is explicitly aimed at newcomers to illustration, as evidenced by a $79 pricetag. To reach that it sacrifices features found on other Bamboo tablets, such as the multi-touch support on the Capture, or the workspace of the Create. It also lacks support for Wacom's Wireless Accessory Kit.

The Splash has a 5.8x3.6-inch workspace, with a 133pps data rate, 2540lpi resolution, and 1,024 pressure levels. Included with the tablet are two beginner illustration programs: ArtRage 3 Studio, and Autodesk's SketchBook Express.

Windows users must be running Windows XP SP3 or later; Mac owners must have a computer with an Intel processor and at least OS X 10.5. Each package includes a series of extra pen nibs to cope with wear on the Splash's stylus.
