Genius G-Pen F610 Tablet

New tablet from Genius, The G-Pen F610 functions under the Mac OS X and Vista/XP/XP 64/2000 operating systems. The working size for this ultra slim tablet is 6" x 10" and features a Electronic Users Manual and Macro key manager for the 29 macro programmable keys along the edge of the tablet. The Pen on the unit sports what Genius is calling 1024 Level Pressure sensitivity giving users control over the line flow and size in programs such as Corel Painter and Adobe Photoshop.

The tablet support in Windows Vista also adds to the functionality of the unit with handwriting recognition, sticky notes and Office 2007 Digital Inking as well. Shipping with the tablet is Corel/Ulead PhotoImpact 12se for working with photos, Office Ink, Free Note, Macro Key Manager and Power Presenter LE. The tablet plugs into the USB slot on the PC or Notebook and the wireless pen powers with a AAA battery.

The unit is one of the slimmest we've seen and the frosted plastic cover that lifts off the tablet will give the user the ability to trace images easier with the pen. Some of the hot keys that are a part of this tablet include the ability to magnify, flip3D, access music, photos, messenger and email. All with a point and tap, users can work with Office Apps and save, print or cut info from documents. Resolution for the unit is set at 2000 lpi. One are that disappointed us in the pre-install was with the documentation which ships in just about 20+ languages for install. To get info on the program such as Office Ink, the program needs to be installed. Even the Electronic Program guide on the disk did not seem to offfer up info about this program.


If size is an issue, this is certainly going to take up a minimal amount of space on the desktop and store easily due to its slim footprint. For those looking for other sizes, Genuis has an expansive line of tablets from the G-Pen 340 with a 3" x 4" work area to the Pen Sketch 9 x12 which also comes with a mouse.

Useless in Xp - can't set up zoom function in Macro Key manager. Have to use F2 key instead. And it pisses me out. Dont those genius folks promote buggy vista by including zoom function there?
