I was just wondering if anyone have any experience with device like this.

MY ex girlfriends brother has one of those. He uses it to draw stuff in PS and I've used it several times. Very cool device, more accurate than I expected... Wacom is the way to go if you plan on getting one IMO.

I don't have any experience with the "multi-touch" technology.... Okay. watched the video, so gestures and it allows you to use it like a trackpad.

Thats not a bad price. I wonder is they will come out with a USB3.0 and/or wireless version

No point in USB3 for such a device, as it will never require the bandwidth (touch technology is fairly low bandwidth anyway). Additional power may be useful, but it's probably not required either...

I have an intuos 4 and it's really great if you do a lot of graphics work. :) What would you be using it for?

I have the Wacom Graphire 4...it's, at times, TOO accurate. I have the pen AND the mouse. It's sensitive to the point that if you click the pen it will move the crosshair off your desired point. I have to use the "enter" button on the top of the tablet.

But for digital painting and stuff, it rocks.

I have a cheapo Genius MousePen 8x6 tablet that works pretty well.

I've hardly used it though. Its definitely 100x better than trying to draw with a mouse, but I'm sure the more expensive ones are worth it if you can afford them. Mine was only $45 several years ago and its a pretty decent size.

Not bandwidth wise, but I heard somewhere that USB3 devices have native wireless capability.
