We live in the world of technology where success of a company is defined by innovation and product development. Innovation is a predominant factor especially in the Information Technology industry, and a prime example of such innovative products is graphics tablets. Starting with the brief description of the product, a Best Tablet For Artists which is more commonly referred to as graphic tablet or graphic pad, is a form of input device similar to a mouse or a trackball; a drawing tablet is basically one of the various forms of pointing device used for computers.
A typical graphics tablet consists of a flat surface and a pen or stylus; some even come with a wireless mouse which can be used on top of the surface. Now as you might have guessed, the data is inputted in the computer system through the pen or the stylus by writing or graphics on the flat screen surface. As the graphics tablet is much like writing or graphics on a paper with a pencil or a pen, most commonly this device is used by graphic designers, artists, and game developers who require an inputting device which provides them with facility to digitalize their art work without them having to put in extra hours working with a mouse. Despite the fact that these drawing tablets were initially developed to cater to the very need of graphic designers, the product has gained popularity over the years by IT fanatics. Therefore, less expensive and more user-friendly versions of these graphics tablets are now easily available like any other device such as a mouse or computer speakers.
The most popular manufacturer of drawing tablets is Wancom. They are well-known for developing such graphics tablets for Windows and Macintosh platforms. They have a wide variety of graphics tablet lines each of which are developed and intended for specific users. Their present line is ‘Bamboo’, which is a successor of their previous drawing tablet series ‘Graphite’. The standard Bamboo drawing tablet is developed for both basic office and home use while their other graphics tablet Bamboo Fun, which is from the same series as Bamboo, is intended for more creative users such as graphic designers and digital photographers. Intuos is another series of drawing tablets which is specifically developed for professional use and has more integrated features as compared to Bamboo and Bamboo Fun. Probably the most attractive feature of these Wancom drawing tablets is the texture of the surface which is much like a paper and that of the stylus/pen which is made similar to the size of any ordinary pen or pencil.
There are various other alternative manufacturers of such drawing tablets UC-ogic/DigiPro, which is considered to be one of the leading competitors of Wancom, CalComp, Dynalink, KB Gear and Genius. Like any other device, it is a matter of preference of the consumer when it comes to the purchase of these graphics tablets, which is typically heavily dependent on the quality and price. To enhance the experience of users, usually drawing tablets come with bundled software which includes popular programs such as Adobe Photoshop Elements and Corel Painter Essentials. As learning how to use these drawing tablets is a matter of hours, there is little reluctance of consumers interested in innovative IT goods to add these novel drawing tablets to their collection.
