Wacom has launched it's first widescreen graphics tablet, which is designed to complement widescreen LCD monitors such as Apple's Cinema Display line and Dell's popular UltraSharp 2005FPW. The Intuos3 A5 Wide has an active area of 6-x-11 inches, giving it a 16:10 aspect ratio.
Many of the high-quality LCD displays favoured by designers have a widescreen aspect ratio, as do the high-resolution screens of many high-end laptops. The widescreen layout of Wacom's tablet is designed to match the relative dimensions of these displays. Users of Wacom's traditional range of tablets lose a significant part of the drawing surface when used with a widescreen display.
