Wacom will announce a special edition of its pen tablet range, the Graphire4 Classic White Edition, at MacExpo today.
The pen tablet has been designed to match MacBooks and iMacs, but is otherwise identical to the existing Graphire4 range. The special edition comes in either A6 or A5 size and will be available in November 2006.
The solution, which ships with Corel painter Essentials 3, offers two freely programmable buttons (ExpressKeys) located at the top of the tablet, which can be defined by users. The tablet integrates a scroll wheel for zooming in and out of photographs. It also houses an integrated pen compartment.
The 512-level pressure-sensitive white pen has a rubberised grip and two configurable buttons (set as right and double-click by default). For quick corrections, the pen can simply be flipped upside down in order to use the pressure sensitive eraser at the other end.
The A6 Graphire4 Classic White Edition (A6) costs £74.99, while the A5 version costs £149.99.
