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 images.

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.
