Genius, a regular purveyor of cheap and cheerful
technology, has today announced a pair of "dual platform" tablets that play nice with both Windows and Mac OS. The EasyPen i405 comes with 28 programmable hot keys, a software bundle, 4 x 5.5-inches of real estate and a $79 price tag. This is trumped by the MousePen i608, which throws in an optical mouse, a 6 x 8-inches working area and -- best of all -- one more hot key to program. Bargain hunters out there might want to prick up their ears, as the MousePen is already available at Amazon
at prices south of $60, far below its suggested retail price of one Benjamin -- hey, it's no Wacom
, but it certainly won't dent the wallet too bad.
