And There Might Be Another Apple Tablet

Remember the Modbook. You know that mod of a Macbook that turned it into a Tablet. Well this idea reminds me vaguely of that, but I doubt it will ever reach the market for legal reasons.

The folks at Axon Logic are looking to intro a $500 Tablet that runs OSX. Of course that means it is a different beast than the iPad, offering USB ports, a web cam, etc… and of course it isn’t touch optimized. To try and get around the Apple legal beagles (good luck) they are looking to ship a stand alone copy of OSX that you install yourself, but I don’t think that will wash.

    Clearly they’re doing this for publicity but it’s a dangerous game!

    They could easily stick Linux on it and word would get out regarding its OSX compatability, but to actually ship it with OSX, well, good luck with that.

      I agree with you Gavin. Apple will slam down the hammer on its own developers for any number of reasons, can’t imagine what the company’s lawyers are going to do to these poor guys.
