No, it isn’t a tablet PC. But for $200, I’d get one if I didn’t already have a tablet.

Adesso CyberPad: a near-Tablet experience

Adesso CyberPad

I had the opportunity over the past couple of weeks to try out the Adesso CyberPad, a device that records your handwritten notes and sketches and allows you to import them to your PC. If this sounds Tablet-like, it is. Think of the CyberPad as a distant cousin to the full digital ink experience offered by a Tablet PC.

The CyberPad, physically, resembles a clipboard with a small LCD display and a row of buttons running down one edge. It uses plain paper, unlike the Logitech IO pen and other handwriting capture systems which require the use of special (and rather expensive) paper that uses a metallic grid printed on the surface to track the pen's position as you write. That's a huge advantage over time.
