August 13, 2010, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Axon Logic has lined up its new tablet PC christened Axon Haptic, and it runs Mac OS. The device, designed for ‘hackintosh’ Mac OS X installation, is is expected to be compatible with any Darwin-based OS, such as PureDarwin and Apple OS X, in addition to Windows and Linux. But the company warns about licensing restrictions, in case you are planning to install OS X in anything other than Apple products. The tablet, which is based on an Intel platform, stands out in a crowd by boasting of a hidden EFI partition just waiting to have OS X installed on it.

The device comes with 1.6GHz Atom N270 CPU and 2GB of RAM. It features a 10 inch LED-backlit LCD having a 1024 x 600 resolution. The tablet comes with resistive touchscreen and a 320GB hard drive. It comes equipped with a 1.3 megapixel webcam and a removable 3000mAh battery. Weighing less than 2lb, it has built-in WiFi (802.11 b/g/n) and speaker. It also provides several USB ports, headphone, mic, Ethernet jack, VGA ports and a card reader. It also has On-screen keyboard and handwriting recognition.

The tablet is available for pre-orders and costs $750. But operating systems such as Mac OS X or Windows must be bought separately. Accessories like a CDMA 3G card, USB Bluetooth dongle, and Bluetooth GPS receiver, is also available from Axon.
