Dell has unveiled a 27-inch touchscreen tablet aimed at artists hoping to work digitally.
(CCM) — Dell has uncovered its Canvas device, its 27-inch, 18.5-pound answer to Microsoft's Surface Studio, according to reports by International Business Times. The device, which was unveiled by the company at CES 2017 in Las Vegas, can either be laid flat or angled like an artist's easel with the help of a kickstand. It is also equipped with a set of large bezels designed to provide the most comfort for artists as they work, a QHD display with 2560 x 1440 screen resolution, and anti-glare Gorilla Glass.
The tablet comes with a stylus, but users can also use a device, called Totem, also unveiled by Dell during the announcement. Similar to Microsoft's Surface Dial, the Totem is used to explore menus. Despite being expressly made with creatives in mind, Dell insists that — unlike the Surface Studio — the Canvas is meant as a tool to be used in partnership with a computer and not as a standalone device. The Canvas will have a $2,000 price tag when it enters retail locations starting Mar. 30.
