This is the first challenger to the Wacom Cintiq although it is only 17" and I am not sure about the resolution of the tablet (the LCD resolution is 1280x1024). Here is an info page from Hong Kong:

http://www.yutron.com.hk/products/p-active/products/xpc1700b.htm

This is all very new and it has just been advertised on export sites but it shouldn't be long before individuals can get their hands on them. The price, if you buy at least 10 from the exporter is US$585 which is reasonable but I still like the idea of building my own.

UPDATE:

The tablet resolution is 2000lpi (compared to 5080lpi on wacom intuos3). Here is a more detailed specification:

And another... "Cybertablet M17"

http://www.adesso.us/product_details.asp?dept_id=124&pf_id=KA33TBCYBERTABLETM17

this one claims only 500 lpi

a mere $1699 in any color you want... as long as it's black. 

At that price, I guess I still want to build my own.  Smiley

yes, lpi=lines per inch

That's how they state the ability of the tablet to distinguish different locations of the pen.  All the LPIs seem to exceed the pixels per inch on the screens by quite a bit so I'm not sure how greater LPIs benefit you.

I think like most manufacturers stats these are made to look good.   The lpi measure is probably a maximum that the tablet is capable of rather than how it does in it's worst spot for measurement.  Personally I'm not sure how much accuracy you really need to get a good accurate reading.   You can only _see_ < 300 dpi, so is 5000 really more useful than 2000?  I don't know.

Although I now stay in Aberdeen, I am quite sad to see the demise of Paddys Market, I havent been there for years but have fond memories of the place.Is there no chance of a re-think, and bring it back?
BTW soundtaxi has Christmas promotion open yet. That is a must have deal for tons of multimedia features available in their software pack
