Mac Tablet announced — by Axiotron and OWC

Axiotron and OWC have teamed up to produce a tablet that uses Mac OS X. The "ModBook" will use technology from WACOM that allows you to take advantage of the Inkwell technology inside of Mac OS X. No pictures of it have been released as of yet.

GPS will also be included, with the SiRFstar 3 chipset. This thing will cost a lot of money! Mac tablets have been created before by other companies, but cost a lot of money, and were only done on a custom basis. This is the first time that a tablet will be mass-produced that has OS X on it. It is going to be released at Macworld on the 9th, so stayed tuned, as we have live coerage as it unfolds!

It was the Barenaked Ladies who sang about Manga classic Sailor Moon "the cartoon has got the boom anime babes who make me think the wrong thing", and I'd like to imagine that graphics tablet-masters Wacom had them in mind when putting together their limited edition Favo Comic Pack.

A set containing a white Graphire4 A6-sized pen tablet, software such as Manga Studio Debut 3.0 and Corel Painter Essentials2, and online resources such as downloadable project files, it's available in European markets for £74.99 ($142.62).
