For a device which has lived solely in the hearts and minds of hopeful buyers for such a long time, the Modbook has certainly seen its fair share of news. The latest dispatch comes in the form of a letter from the “Other World Computing Team,” marketers for the Axitron-made tablet Mac, detailing expected shipment dates and new configuration options which are being made available. If you believe what you read, actual ModBook hardware will be shipping to buyers starting January 11th — of course, they’ve been claiming a ship date for about a year, so we recommend you take this one with a hefty grain of you-know-what.
