ModBook: The First Mac Tablet to Enter the Marketplace?

The Axiotron ModBook

Last January, Axiotron promised a Mac-based tablet. It’s been a while, but it seems as though they are going to deliver on their promise… this January. According to a reseller, the ModBook will begin shipping on January 8th.

Some key features of the Axiotron Modbook:

  • WAAS enabled GPS
  • ForceGlass Screen & Camera Cover
  • WACOM Penabled Digitizer
  • Axiotron Digitizer Pen
  • Full touch-screen capabilities

Pricing will start at $2,279 USD for the ‘fast’ model and $2,479 USD for a ‘fastest’ model. It looks as though you can pre-order your ModBook from Other World Computing here.

With MacWorld upon us, I’m sure Axiotron is simply trying to hit the market before Apple releases their tablet computer. This raises the question: Does Axiotron know that Apple is going to be launching a tablet at MacWorld? Certainly food for thought.

I’d wait till MacWorld hits us before considering picking one of these bad boys up… Plus I’d wait to read some reviews as well. With tablets like the ModBook due to hit the market in the year to come, it will be only a matter of time before Apple releases their own version. What do you think?
