Piggy backing on the other big release this Friday is the PixelPad. Not exactly the same as the real thing, but the PixelPad may be an alternative option to the iPad for non-early adopters. The PixelPad provides you with the original user interface. It is a pad of 10×10 grid paper that comes with a permanent marker, a ball point pen and a graphite lead mechanical pencil. Their ultimate pack comes with colored markers. The pads sit in a rigid paperboard backing that looks like the back of an iPad and provides a sturdy writing surface. One pad includes 64 sheets. Cost starts at $24. Each PixelPad comes with at least one refill. Available Friday, April 2.
