Following Steve Jobs’ announcement of the AppleTV and iPhone from the Macworld Conference and Expo in San Francisco January 9, Other World Computing and strategic-partner Axiotron drew a record-setting crowd at the OWC booth for the public unveiling of the ModBook, the first ever Mac OS X tablet computer solution. It is believed to be the largest Macworld exhibitor draw for a non Apple, Inc. announcement.
The Axiotron ModBook is an after-market hardware modification solution of the Apple MacBook notebook computer, adding true pen input, a new 13.3″ wide screen LCD and an optional Global Positioning System in a tough, satin-finish, chrome-plated magnesium top shell, while keeping all the powerful features of the MacBook base system. With the award winning Mac OS X and its built-in Inkwell handwriting recognition, up to 2GHz fast Intel Core 2 Duo processors, the integrated iSight camera and the CD/DVD combo drive, the slate-style Axiotron ModBook is the ultimate companion for applications and situations where a keyboard only gets in the way.
The Axiotron ModBook is immediately available for pre-orders in the US and Canada through an exclusive strategic-partnership arrangement between Axiotron and Other World Computing. During Macworld and until January 31st, Other World Computing is offering the complete ModBook base configuration plus the built-in Axiotron GPS Module at a Special Introductory Pre-Reserve Price of USD$2,199.
