Jan 12, 2007 | San Francisco, CA


One day after taking home Best of Show at the Macworld awards ceremony, on Thursday, January 11, strategic partners Other World Computing and Axiotron, Inc. received a second major award at the Macworld Conference and Expo for the ModBook solution: the Macsimum Award 2007 , from premiere Mac online news site Macsimum News. The ModBook solution was honored as the first ever Mac OS® X tablet computer solution.

Rikki Lee Travolta, Public Relations Manager for Other World Computing, accepted the Macsimum Award 2007 presented by Macsimum News president Dennis Sellers at Other World Computing’s Axiotron ModBook solution display booth. On Tuesday, the public unveiling of the ModBook solution drew a crowd of hundreds, completely encircling the Other World Computing display booth. It is believed to be the largest Macworld exhibitor draw for a non-Apple, Inc. announcement.

The ModBook solution 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. The ModBook solution features a tough, satin 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 2.0GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor, the integrated iSight™ camera and the CD/DVD combo drive or optional DVD SuperDrive, the slate-style ModBook is the ultimate companion for applications and situations where a keyboard only gets in the way.
