Apple Premier Developer Incorporates Touch International's Projected Capacitive Touch Screen Into Mac Tablet Computers
(Marketwire Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) AUSTIN, TX, February 23 / MARKET WIRE/ --
Touch International, a leading touch screen
manufacturer headquartered in Austin, Texas, joined forces with Axiotron
Corporation, an Apple Premier Developer based in El Segundo, California, to
integrate touch screen technology into Axiotron's Mac-based tablet
computers, the Modbook? and the Modbook Pro.
"We're excited to be working with Touch International on the Synergy(TM)
Touch technology for the Modbook and the Modbook Pro," said Axiotron
founder and CEO Andreas E. Haas. "Because of their leadership in touch
screen technology, Touch International is both a dependable provider of
top-quality components for Axiotron as well as a valuable partner in our
efforts to develop innovative products for our customers."
The Modbook was introduced to the market in December 2007. It is the
world's first Mac-based tablet computer. Axiotron's 15.4-inch Modbook Pro
is scheduled to be released in June 2009.
Axiotron's revolutionary Synergy Touch Technology, which will be available
as an option on the Modbook (beginning in April 2009) and standard on the
15.4-inch Modbook Pro, enables both pen and touch input simultaneously. The
Axiotron units incorporate a projected capacitive touch screen and
electronics from Touch International and the Apple computing architecture.
The result: a tablet computer superior to all other tablets on the market
with unparalleled graphics performance and computing power.
With the Synergy Touch technology, on-screen buttons and shortcut keys give
Modbook and Modbook Pro users a quick and smooth transition between tools
and programs. This function meets the critical demands of creative
professionals using graphic-intensive programs to create 2D, 3D and video
Touch International focused its rugged, yet highly transparent, projected
capacitive touch screen solutions to companies needing iPhone-type user
interface with multi-touch gesturing to pinch, expand and drag images in
large format display applications.
