Tablet computers are hot right now thanks to the iPad that is selling so well for Apple. Most of the tablets coming from other companies like HP are more like netbooks than a normal tablet like the iPad though. A company called Axon has unveiled all the specs for its Haptic tablet machine. The Haptic will run Mac OS X according to the firm.


However, as other firms have found out putting OS X on non-Apple hardware will incur the swift wrath of Apple legal types. Therefore, Axon "strongly recommends" you not install OS X on the machine. It can run Windows or Linux as well if you like those better. The hardware is typical netbook fare under the tablet cover.

You get a 1.6GHz Atom N270 CPU, 10-inch 1024 x 600 screen that supports pen input and recognizes handwriting, and a 1.3MP webcam. The tablet has 2GB of RAM, a 3G sim slot for mobile broadband, a 320GB HDD, WiFi, and a lot more. The 3000mAh battery is removable as well to let you keep working on the go. The machine will run you about $800 when it launches.
