Gottabemobile and JKOnTheRun are both point to this review of the ModBook slate Tablet from Axiotron.
Sounds like the reviewer wasn’t too sure of the Tablet concept and slates in particular–especially 5.5lb slates. Yeah, how I long for an updated NEC LitePad, but that’s another story.
The reviewer also isn’t sure whether the built-in Apple handwriting technology, called InkWell, is up to par. From my tests I’d agree. Vista’s handwriting reco beats it hands down.
I would agree with the implication of the article though: That a great Tablet has to be designed to be a great Tablet, not just modded together. So, if Apple were to make a Tablet I bet it could create an ever better one. That being said, for artists and those Mac users who are looking for a slate, the Modbook sounds like a pretty good choice. I’d really like to give one a spin.
