Introduction:::...

A couple of weeks ago I got my hands on WACOM's rather impressive Graphire Bluetooth, a wireless 8"x 6" tablet with a hefty £175 price tag.

Impressive it may have been, but for the average user looking to flex their creative muscles rather than earn an income from their PC it's probably just a little too expensive to be tempting, particularly if you've never used one before and aren't entirely sure if you'll take to it.

The subject of today's review is the Volito 2, a smaller tablet with a smaller price tag and aimed squarely at the casual leisure user, though despite this it's built around many of the technologies that have made WACOM a household name in the graphics tablet sector.
