Digital tablets may not be as hot as they once were, but they're still invaluable for professional artists and graphic design gurus. To that end, Genius has just introduced a new duo of them, the EasyPen i405 and MousePen i608. The dual-platform tablets were engineered for business professionals, graphic designers and artists on-the-go, and both ship with native support for Mac OS X and Windows.
The EasyPen i405 has 28 programmable “Hot-Keys”, while the MousePen i608 has 29, for instant and easy access to common Office and Internet functions. The cordless pen features 1024-level pressure sensitivity and two buttons for controlling shapes and thickness while drawing or writing. The EasyPen i405 has a 4” x 5.5” working area for easy transport and use in a car, coffee shop or any type of mobile office. The MousePen i608 has a larger 8”x6” working area and comes with a cordless mouse with integrated scroll wheel for ease and convenience while using the tablet.
Both devices can be used to write, draw, sketch and/or sign documents, and both come bundled with PenNotice, Annotate for Word, Commander, PenMail, and PenSigner. Thankfully, Genius has decided to offer these at rather affordable price points: $79 for the i405 and $99 for the i608.
