It's interesting to use Wacom Intuos with Inkscape if calligraphy tool supports tilt and bearing sensibility. I can't test it, my tablet is a Graphire 3. Had anyone ever tested Intuos and Inkscape calligraphy tool together?

A wacom can be quite handy. One difference the Intuos4 line has is
that the stylus reports tilt in addition to pressure (It's also more
sensitive). It also supports different pens, and has the back end of
the stylus reported as a different input.

If you're looking at the Bamboo line, be sure and check out the "Pen &
Touch" model.
