It's a graphic design platform, it's not something apple is even competing with, did they really need to apologize to apple twice in the article?

Wacom 24" Cintiq.

Well, OK, it's not a tablet, but they're converging.  Darn those Cintiqs are wicked.

Wanting a large, easy to use screen is now overcompensating?   Lay off the paint chips, subby.

StopLurkListen: Wacom 24" Cintiq.


Holy shiat.

No, they don't. In that size range they make all-in-one PCs and laptops with touch screens. Up until now, the largest commercially available tablet is under 12". Apple and Samsung are both working on releasing one slightly bigger than that, but not by much.

It means Apple better up its ad buys this quarter or it may find itself "beleagured" shamefully again

Cough.

You can argue that it's a desktop since it doesn't have a battery, but that's a 21" touchscreen running Android. And it's priced pretty reasonably, too.

Talk about over compensating! Look at the size of that graphics tablet!

Meh.  I tried using a Nexus 10 as my "daily desktop" for about a day.  It simply didn't cut the mustard when I wanted to do more than one thing at a time.  Surfing was awkward, copy/pasting between apps was awkward, no multi-monitor support, etc.  It was a fark of a lot better than trying to use a Chromebook in that I could do everything I wanted but it felt clunky and awkward.  I'm just used to having windowed apps that I can layer so I can see activity as it happens.  I quickly went back to my laptop after my Chrome and Android experiments.

I don't have to argue. HP is careful to label it correctly themselves: HP Slate 21-k100 All-in-One Desktop PC. Not all devices with touchscreens are tablets; that's a specific type of computer. Words have meanings.

I have a smaller Cintiq. I still love it... and yes it is wicked cool. :D

When I first got it I was sketching and erased a line and instinctively tried to brush away the (non-existent) eraser shavings.

That being said... if I didn't have to pay for it, I would love one of those tablets.

3rd Verse

Different chorus, mentioning "a less expensive model" at... the same price.

So bad you can't even write cheese-metal songs for, say, Hammerfall? NBC has a tech writer spot for you.

/Actually, I don't mind Hammerfall. But this is worse.

being able to survive a 2.5 foot drop is a feature now? you'd think if it can't survive falling from desk height you wouldn't even want to mention it.

I have several friends in graphics who have been looking for something just like this. The price is not at all unreasonable at the moment, if you require that level of precision. It's a special market, so I see sales for these things should be small but probably what is expected.

Shakin_Haitian: 230 ppi isn't impressive.


It farking well is on a display that size.

Also, 15:10, not 16:9 -- 2560 vertical instead of 2160. I'd love to see that aspect ratio in a large desktop display.

Is my original 7" Samsung Galaxy a desktop now since its battery is shot?

I believe in this case HP's meaning for desktop is "This is not the device on which to play Angry Birds while you're having a porcelain vacation", which is really more about managing user expectations than describing the hardware. It is in all ways an oversized tablet, but it doesn't have a battery, probably because anything they stuck on a 22" display would either make the device awkwardly overweight or not offer any meaningful run time. Otherwise, it's all the same hardware that everyone else is using. How is that then not a tablet?

Newer Samsung Android devices can run two apps on screen at the same time. Not every app can be used that way, but most Google-provided apps can and that's certainly a good start. I've been able to get by with a tablet while I'm traveling since it's not that hard to RDP in to a real computer if I need to do real work, but it's possible to write a document with a somewhat complex layout using QuickOffice if someone holds a gun to your head. If your needs are for CAD or content creation, no way. If your job involves lots of presentations or just writing a lot of E-mail, sure, why not?

In the same way that one of those 6' paperclip sculptures are not paperclips because it is cannot be used to clip papers together, this is not a tablet. This is a screen. A tablet is a screen, but things that have screens are not automatically tablets.

Downstairs in an office furniture place they have a TV screen on one of the windows. I said "on" the window, not "in" the window. It doesn't have a very bright display or clear resolution, but it seems to be about as thick as a piece of Bristol board.

I don't think this is one of the bendable screens that we are promised in the near future, but it's obviously a lot thinner than your LED or Plasma TV. Soon you'll be able to carry a large tablet in a tube like a bed roll or yoga mat.

I'd have thought I'd have gotten news of this at some point,

Wacom must be doing well with so many folks licensing their tech

aww, no rear facing camera?

People who can afford to have a twenty inch six pound composite material tablet that is too slow to be used for what they claim they're using it for can buy a farking DSLR from their coin purse.

Gods, why would they use an nV mobility chip like that piece of shiat?!?!
