Wacom has announced the Cintiq 13HD touch 13" graphics tablet, which is essentially a 13HD with multi-touch gesture support. While the bundled Pro Pen - offering 2048 levels of pressure sensitivity as well as tilt recognition - drives the overall creative experience on the Cintiq 13HD touch, it is the newly added multi-touch integration that allows the user to navigate the desktop or rotate and zoom in and out of an image or illustration in an intuitive fashion.
