This Cregle PenBook has hit the FCC website and I’m very interested in the fact that it is a Windows 7 machine with a Wacom digitizer. It looks kind of clunky and I wonder if that will change (I hope so), but it has some great features.
- The PenBook features a multitouch display with palm-rejection technology so you can place your hand on the screen and use the pen to write.
- There are touch-sensitive bars above and below the screen which you can use for gestures to adjust screen brightness, trigger Page Up or Down actions, or send a Ctrl+Alt+Del signal. You can also create custom gesture-based commands.
- The tablet has a 5000mAh, 6 hour battery which is user replaceable.
I think the PenBook might give the portable Wacom, Apple iPad and other touchscreen devicesÂ a run for their money. We shall see! No word on when it will be released or how much it will cost yet. Check out some of the (unflattering) pictures below!
