Excerpt: Compared to its better-known competitors from Wacom, Genius’ £67.99 MousePen i608 graphics tablet offers more real estate for less money. Its 8 x 6in working area is roughly the same as that offered by Wacom’s £169 Bamboo Fun, and is much larger than the 5.8 x 3.6in surface of the £75 Bamboo Pen and Touch. Overall, though, this tablet doesn’t measure up to Wacom’s latest offerings.
Pros: Large surface; programmable shortcut keys; mouse included
Cons: Pen requires batteries; no full-version graphics software; included utilities and demo programs are Windows only
