The Wacom Cintiq Companion Hybrid tries to be a great Cintiq display, Android tablet, and portable solution. It doesn't quite achieve all of those goals, though it tries valiantly.

Price when rated: $1499
Lowest price: $1,500.00 via Amazon.com Marketplace


  • Full 13.3-inch screen for Cintiq use on the desktop
  • Features Wacom's excellent pressure-sensitive technology on desktop and Android
  • 12 hour battery life on Android


  • Too bulky for most daily tablet usage
  • Difficult to transfer files off tablet via USB
