Now before you get excited over the image, remember that this isn't an Apple Tablet, but instead a third-party tablet made by the "German and American engineers" at Axiotron. Still, the ModBook is about as close as you can get to owning an "official" Mac tablet. The details are still sparse, but here's what we know so far. The ModBook will come in the form of a slate notebook and it'll use Wacom Penabled hardware along with Apple's Inkwell to give you that tablet-like handwriting functionality. The system will also have built-in GPS. Pricing and availability are up in the air, but you can expect all that to be disclosed at Macworld. Nice to see someone else batting up for Apple, though we're curious if they'll be able to pull off that flawless Apple design Ives and company are known for.

DISCUSSION

Remember the last 3rd party macOS devices? They were around for a few years before apple squashed it.

"Apple dont want to risk in the tablet market, so other ppl are taking the plunge, if everything goes well, you know, Apple is gonna buy them, if not, then Apple will no suffer the loses."

that's probably what will happen...
