Designed for flexible, human computing, the PaceBook, with Microsoft's new Windows XP Tablet Edition Operating System, promises an evolution in how you work. Take notes, mark up documents in your own handwriting - even search your handwritten notes!

Even before Microsoft announced its plans for the Tablet PC operating system, PaceBlade had begun work on our Tablet, researching and developing a truly human product - combining incredible functionality and great style. The launch of Windows XP Tablet Edition extends this power, so you can switch between digital ink, the on-screen keyboard or traditional input methods - a keyboard.

With PaceBlade's range of accessories, you can meet all your computing needs. Need a Desktop PC? The DeskStand is the best-looking, most ergonomic solution. Need to work handsfree? We have the carrying solutions, designed in conjunction with our customers.


Digital Ink and Touchscreen set the PaceBook Tablet apart. With the digitizer and touchscreen you choose the best input method for your needs.

Digital ink gives excellent handwriting recognition, allowing you to annotate documents, write email by hand, even search your handwritten notes. And the special screen means you can put your hand on the screen while writing - exactly like on paper.

But take the pen away, and you can use the touchscreen with your finger - or choose the On-screen keyboard for fast data entry.

The PaceBook Tablet is the only Tablet PC that offers such range of input methods - so you can be truly on the move.

For the first time ever, an operating system has been designed specifically for pen input. Now you can take notes and mark up documents all in your own handwriting. You can even search your handwritten notes.
