It seems like one company has jumped in where Apple has not wanted to tread- the tablet PC market. The Modbook by Axiotron and sold through OtherWorldComputing. This is basically a modified white macbook, yet overlayed with a outward facing touch screen. Hit the jump for more info and more pics. Speaking to the representatives I have gleamed this information from them” +They replaced the original screen with a Toshiba panel that has a wider viewing angle +A glass WACOM pane has been overlayed and it is chemically treated to be scratch resistant +A version comes with a GPS module for $100 US additional and the software details have yet to be worked out.+The iSight camera still works I asked if they had considered the medical field as a possible market. They said that they had not previously considered it but had been asked many questions by medical staff who had visited their booth over the last day. In addition I heard a very happy corporate guy telling one of the booth workers that yesterday that had done about .5 million in projected sales yesterday.
This is a closeup of drawing using the ModBook
