At this year’s CES show, Wacom released the $399 Wacom One Creative Pen Display, arguably the company’s most affordable tablet to date. The 13-inch screen is compatible with macOS and Windows operating systems, and adds support for Android devices. As for compatibility support for the iPhone/iPad, Wacom says there are no plans.
Users can use Wacom One on their Android phone, even without a laptop. Once you’re connected to your phone, you can run illustrated apps like Autodesk SketchBook. Wacom One still uses hdMI /USB/power ports and does not support USB-C ports, so you need to purchase an additional docking station to connect to newer MacBooks and Android devices.
The Wacom One features a 13-inch screen with a resolution of 1920 x 1080, 72% NTSC color, and a beautiful matte display with an anti-glare film, making it ideal for drawing. Wacom says the creation of One One takes into account “creative beginners, social content creators, and visual thinkers” to make tablets suitable for entry-level artists.
The Wacom One is about the size of an iPad, but is wider and more durable, so you can have the confidence that young kids can use it. Interested consumers can buy it through Wacom’s website or through other retail channels, such as Amazon, for $399.
