Genius MousePen M508 & M508W Tablets Unveiled, Shipping in September for $149 and $199

September is turning out to be an expensive month for tech enthusiasts. Well, that is if you like buying all of the new toys that come out. Genius has just unveiled two new tablets in their MousePen series. The M508 and M508W share plenty of features, the majority of them all dedicated for the tablet features, but obviously you'll have to pay a premium for that whole "wireless" thing.

Both tablets feature a 5x8-inch area for you to get some work done, which can be switched from a widescreen view, to a 4:3 aspect ratio, all depending on what you need to get done at the time. If you do end up buying the MousePen tablets, you will be able to program 13 keys on the tablet's surface, while also being able to program the four hardware keys above the working area as well. There are already dedicated controls for controlling brush attributes, zooming, and scrolling.

Both models also 1024-level pressure sensitivity with the included Bluetooth-connected pen, and 4,000 LPI resolution. The difference in the models come in the wired and wireless variety. The MousePen M508 is wired, and will cost $149. However, the wireless M508W touchpad will cost you a cool $199, when they both ship some time this September.
