Mac tablet computer with GPS

January 7, 2007 Here’s one to look forward to for Mac enthusiasts. The ModBook is the first ever Mac tablet computer solution and we’ll be able to see it without the veil on January 9, at the Macworld Conference & Expo in San Francisco. The Axiotron ModBook is not a Mac product, but uses Apple's Mac OS X Tiger operating system and its own WACOM Penabled hardware to create a high-end slate-style notebook computer that is fully compatible with Apple's Inkwell, a Mac OS X Tiger feature that provides system level handwriting and gesture recognition to all Mac applications. This means you can draw and write directly on the screen for a uniquely intuitive user experience. The slim, slate-style ModBook form factor makes further claims as a very useful tool for mobile users, as there’s an optional built-in Global Positioning System (GPS) developed in cooperation with GlobalSat Technologies using the SiRFstar III chipset.

The ModBook will be available in the US exclusively through Other World Computing.
