Tokyo, Japan and Düsseldorf, Germany. – 9 May 2019 – Wacom introduces the new Wacom Intuos Pro Small to its professional range of creative pen and touch tablets. Being the youngest and smallest in the family, it benefits from Wacom’s more than 35 years of know-how, innovation and experience in creating products for digital art and design. The Wacom Intuos Pro Small offers a well-balanced combination of technology, usability and ergonomics and has already been awarded with the prestigious Red Dot Award for product design.

It will be especially appealing to today’s always-on-the go creatives, whose Wacom tablet and PC or Mac laptops are rarely far from their side. The wireless connectivity and battery-free pen technology that never needs charging makes setting up to work at coffee shops, meeting rooms, client’s offices, home, school or studio fast and hassle free.

Whether you’re a student taking the tablet from class to the dorm or a photographer needing to quickly retouch some images at a remote location, the new Wacom Intuos Pro Small delivers spontaneous creative control and professional grade pen and brush strokes to digital art, design and imaging. Additionally, it’s a smart choice for those who have specific workspace size requirements and are looking for a way to experience our very best Pro Pen 2 technology.
